New BBWin GUI Version 2 Release for BBWin XYMon Client

On April 3, 2012, in Projects, Scripting, by Cubert aka (Cube Dweller)

Today we are releasing a brand new fully redesigned BBWin GUI application that will allow the user to quickly and easily add or update the BBWin.cfg file. It is a small standalone application written in C# that provides for most of the configurations that you can find in the BBWin.cfg file. From managing your disks to selecting processes and services to monitor this tool does it all.

When you first launch the GUI it will check to see if it sees the BBWin Service installed on your client and if not will allow you to download it directly from SourceForge.

The next option will be to open an existing cfg file or download our default file.

If you select open existing you will be presented with a Windows Explore window to navigate to the file you want to open. If you select to download the defaults it will pull a generic file from and start you out with nothing configured. It will auto populate the system name and the default disks, CPU, Memory and Pagefile will be monitored.

The BBWin GUI is uses a multi tab display to configure the different  areas of the BBWin.cfg file. As you navigate across each TAB, different options will be displayed for you to modify as needed. We have incorporated sliders and simple presets areas to make it easier to adjust thresholds without making mistakes to format of the XML file. After making all your changes it is easy to save your file and watch BBWin reload automatically.

    Question, anything that I click on results in an exception being thrown. Do I need to do anything specific to get this running? I already had BBWin installed. THanks

  2. Nope, this is the first I have heard of any failure to launch. Do you have admin priviledge? What platform are you running? We have tested on windows 2003 32 and 64bit Windows xp, Windows 7, Windows 2008 and R2. Worse case retry download, make sure you are at version 2.2 for GUI app and let us know how it goes.

    Nice work – very handy!

    I have a suggestion though. We often use BBWin Gui to edit the configuration on many different machines. Browsing for and selecting the BBWin.cfg file every time time is pretty tiresome. How about adding some features such as:
    – Detect local install of BBWin and automatically open that config
    – An option in the ‘What would you like to do?’ prompt for opening the config file in the default install path(s)
    – Allow the config file path to be specified as a command-line parameter. This would at least allow us to create a batch file to automatically load the local config file, effectively achieving the first suggestion.

    Keep up the good work – was pretty tedious editing the config files 🙂

    Heya just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.

    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the
    same outcome.

  5. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite
    reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think
    about worries that they just do not know about. You managed
    to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  6. However, in general those who are facing a first time offense will generally be given
    a sentence which is more lenient that than that of the repeat offender.
    You may be fined $1,000 or even more (again, penalties assessments may be taken), plus your driving license can be taken for as long as three years.
    I also learned that I was much more sympathetic toward the defense,
    and was not a prosecutor at heart. I think it might be as
    a result that the average Los Angeles County DUI attorney is too good at what they
    do. Many drunk driving arrests occur at a sobriety checkpoint or in other non-accident state.

  7. […] There is now a new Windows client available for Xymon […]

    I realize this subject had been idle for years but the tool still works great. If anyone is still maintaining and developing it then I would like to reiterate Michael’s suggestions above from Oct 2012. Some other suggestions would be to add the ability to control the Windows service (Start|Stop|Restart) from within the GUI.

  9. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  10. I not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back down the road. Many thanks
