[Snort-users] Snort and barnyard status

Have you tried using WEBMIN?

It has a system/service status module.  I have it setup so that I can check
the web page and that it emails me if the service status changes.  

You could create your boss a login for webmin that only has access to the
system/service status module.

The best solution for this is using some kind of automated tool
to check the services. The best I know it's nagios, and mon it's
also a good choice. Both have web interfaces and can send mail
to give you alerts.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
