Re: Setting ping interval (like in Netwatch)

might be a few different things i can think of. First is how fast is the server you're running dude on. if the servers lagging obviously your response times would too. second how many devices are you polling, how many devices are being monitored. i guess a limitation on the software would be that th...

Re: Setting ping interval (like in Netwatch)

higher powers correct me if I'm wrong but this is what I've found. if you go into the settings and modify the polling times this should do what you want it to do. you can do this on a global level or you can do it on each individual machine. I don't recall what the defaults are but there are three m...

Re: SNMP Graphs

that's funny, I've brought this up a few times and I think I even put it on the Features request page as well. Big downer for such a great program. The two main functions i use the dude for is it's graphing ability and graphical maps. one of these is near perfect, the other leaves me wanting more.

Re: Spontaneouse service Changes

well that's an interesting concept isn't it.

Spontaneouse service Changes

Sometimes I've noticed that PC's in general will change their monitored services and I'm wondering why. at one point last week i set all PC's to monitor ping only. strangely, they are all monitoring ping and netbios now, some just netbios. anyone have any ideas what could cause this. thanks, Beer.

Re: link speed question

and to think i was just about to bump this one. i've still had no luck in determining the Unit of measurement for the speed setting on an snmp link. Any takers? if i don't get an answer i'll just have to assume it's bytes, but i hate to assume. as we all know it makes an "ass" out of "u" and "me".

Re: Question about deleting logs

i'll be willing to bet that the outages you've got are stored in the data file that dude creates. it's kind of (i think) a proprietary DB structure within a .dat file. you could always try backing up your configuration, and then loading it on another computer. to see if it clears there. then you'd a...

Re: Fundamental Graphing Problem?

huh, that's funny. i've got the same issue but i work around it by adding a new chart, and then clicking OK without nameing it. then i right click it and hit settings. from that point i can do whatever i want, including renaming the chart, and adding data points.
