Server monitoring with anvil

Howdy guys and happy new year!

I want to share a little project i just completed.

The purpose of this project was to monitor and get email alerts from my computers and mining rigs. I use teamviewer for remote management but there are no alerts built in for when a device goes offline :frowning:

I plan to add more features like sending sms and display graphs. Any feedback is appreciated :slight_smile:

PM me if you want the source code of this project. I am happy to share!

The compiled windows service is not signed jet so windows will prompt you with a message like, “unknown publisher”.



Interesting project. I heard another monitoring tool mentioned by @stefano.menci Preferred Application Monitoring Solutions? - #3 by stefano.menci

While this one seems a lot more dedicated and feature rich, I’m not sure about the “windows installer” part.

Is that mean it need a windows host or client? Is it window dependent in some way?


The windows installer is an agent, so in other words it is a client :slight_smile: You only need the windows installer if you want to monitor a windows pc.

The server is the anvil project. All clients/agents make a http get request, meaning they are reporting to the server if they are online or not.

I will edit the text regarding the windows installer - “…shows error”. Windows will prompt that the installer has a unknown publisher. This prompt will disappear when I buy a certificate. But It’s quite expensive.
