A note on things to come

January was a busy month with the release of aila2 here on Connect.

Interestingly enough it feels like I have spent much more time documenting the tool-kit and features than coding it, and I'm not completely done yet.

So, in order to motivate myself to publish some long awaited articles or downloads, here's a quick list of things to come:

  • A wrap-up for aila2-version 1 containing a couple of installation files and the toolkit in a single zip
  • A gauge control for Patch Compliance Trending to provide global compliance status at a glance
  • A toolkit to link multiple Patch Trending sites to provide a global view for large environments
  • A Managed Delivery execution reporting toolkit, to display software execution over time

The 1st item is almost complete and was used in a few production environment already and should be available real soon.

The 2nd and 3rd items are needed because we have large customers moving to my ZeroDayPatch and Patch Trending. This should not be very hard to document as I built something similar for one of my customer, where we have 3 child Management Platforms each with their Patch Trending site.

The 4th item should be fill-in another need to quickly and easily display software execution overtime, and I think I'll start writing this one on Connect using the blog feature to document the coding and testing process before publishing a download once the tool qualifies for release.

So if you are interested in participating feel free to Connect :D.

In case you have seen the featured image on this post and wonder what it is, here are some details.

This is a Falcon 9 rocket from SpaceX on their Cap Canaveral launch pad. I am putting some project on now, so the image is an interesting one for this purpose ;-).

I am currently off-net, on a retreat of some kind. I'll be back real soon, and you sure will hear from me then ;-).

This^

 

I have customers with many policies that you cannot visualise their combined scheduling and how it affects the enterprise. MSD's can have a large effect on TS workload with the execution and other checks. So I am interested in that!

Also...we miss the IIS log analyser - Mihhail and i be-moaning the lack of yours - i'm finding the ones on TechNet fall short being more geared towards public webservers.

So did you not see the aila2 posts here on Connect?

Dig around Michael, and if that doesn't work out I'll show you on Thursday ;-).
