I have been looking on the web for some examples but haven't found anything to my liking. What I would like to build is a combination of CGI and perl. Basically, what I need it to do is just run a ping using cron. Then report back via a webpage if a server is up or down. As an addition to this, I was thinking of maybe trying to put in some historical items such as "server was up x and down y"
Has anyone done something like this?? If so could you share your experience or for that matter just some ideas on the best way that you all may feel this should be handled.
