Finally, I have got a first version of the code of my failure detection service based on SNMP that runs. There is of course still a lot to do, but I have a client application registering with the agent for monitoring a process, building up the appropriate failure detector and receiving updates if the process changes state. In this screen capture the client is on a Sun Blade 1500 and the agent on my Powerbook. Now I need to run the monitored and monitoring agents on different hosts. Does anybody know how to tell Swing to use the platform’s window frames?
