in reply to People who write perl, Perl and PERL

The distinction between perl and Perl is optional, according to perlfaq1. (I wouldn't use PERL though as someone will jump on you if you do.)

    Maybe it was just a typo!

    Although sometime the cleverest people are afraid to ask the simplest of questions

    You can go for years with small but glaring gaps of knowledge

    Some people are Pretty random or lazy with their use of caps anyway. JAVA java PYTHON Python c++ C MySql MYSQL .Net you usually know what they mean really.

    ...unless, of course, it's in the shebang line.

    Seriously, though, in casual reference I hardly ever say 'Perl' ... I'd guess I instinctively type 'perl'. I loathe 'PERL', though.

[marto]: the ticketing system does not accept calls via email, nor has it a working API. It's tied into Active Directory for authentication and the Solaris boxes aren't on that domain
[Corion]: The one thing I haven't figured out a solution to is how to get an edge-trigger instead of sending an email every 5 minutes if the usage is above 90%. I want one mail when it goes over 90% but no more emails as long as it stays between 90% and 95%.
[Corion]: marto: Clever! ;)
[Corion]: You can only reach me by pager
[Corion]: Maybe the solution would be to launch a cron job every minute that takes two measurements a minute apart and sends a mail if the usage is below on the first and above threshold on the last measurement
[marto]: that's essentially it :)
[marto]: I think the long term solution would be to have sysadmins that do their job, so I don't have to do everything :P
[marto]: they already have an entire BMC patrol system, which they disabled, because it was sending out spurious messages. So rather than fix the issue, or even find out what it was, they turned it off. No messages, can't be any problems, right?
[Corion]: marto: But having open tickets / incidents increases the pressure on them ;) Of course, likely your contract / SLA specifies an upper limit for the number of incidents :-D
[Corion]: marto: Ow ...
