 Review: Evaluation up.time 3.0

There are lots of ways to do this sort of thing. My preference in the past has been just to build my own. This looks like an interesting tool.

"All I'm asking for is a quick update of how the servers are running and where there are potential problems. I want something simple enough that there is no need to have to flip open a manual each time a report is required, and robust enough to grow with a medium-sized company.
This mission has led me to freeware, shareware, and a host of costly products that fail to live up to their promises. I asked countless others what they use and there were almost as many different answers as there were administrators. Its not that I am against commands and scripts, it's just that if I pay a lot for a product, I shouldn't have to put reading glasses on to double-check my grep and xargs statements."
