Can you share about your expierence with dude. Do it lags for you and, how many hosts/probes do you have? And what hardware do you use? Is dude responsive/fast?
I am running dude on Pentium D pc, on routerOS.
I monitor 600+ device network, it has 620+ probes (many devices only has ping probe).
The probe interval is 15s, label refresh interval is 15s. Database exported size is about 240MiB.
The dude is not very responsive. When i create new device, before pressing discover button, i have to wait about 3-5 seconds. After pressing ok/apply, i have to wait for 2-3 seconds before the window closes.
So i am blaming this on slow hdd: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=30929
I have tried to use "Delayed flush to disk" option, but it is unstable.
