Are you tired of coming back home only to see CNet crashed and your BBS down for the count? Well, check out Guardian and this problem will become a thing of the past! This is not a Rexx door nor is it a CNetC program, it is a guardian... it hunts for crashed nodes, tries to revive them and, if necessary, resets the system without human intervention. How? By monitoring the status of each loaded port and taking the correct moves to reset the Amiga SAFELY. Guardian is able to catch the majority of node lockups because it is an EXTERNAL program detached from CNet. It will NEVER interfere with normal CNet operation since a port is crashed and it uses less than 0.01% CPU time. This is what Guardian does: 1) Monitors all loaded ports (whether a user is online or not) to see if they are locked up. 2) If a node crashes, Guardian tries to unlock or close and then reload it. If it succeeds, it goes back to monitoring. 3) If not, it immediately closes all loaded nodes that are IDLE (where there is no user online) and shuts down CNet related tasks (ie. Yank-Task, etc.) 4) It then sends two OLMs telling remaining online users to logout within a configurable period of time. 5) Sends a mail message to every kicked user to inform them why they have been disconnected. The crashed user also receives a message asking for a detailed report of what he/she was doing before the crash. 6) It waits for all users to log out before closing the remaining ports; if a user does not log out within a specified (configurable) period of time, Guardian closes the port anyway. The user was warned... If a user logs out of his own accord, CNet closes the port automatically. 7) When all ports except the locked one are idle Guardian unmounts ALL devs through an external utility and resets the Amiga. 8) In rare instances Guardian is able to close all the ports and reload them without forcing a reset. Everything Guardian does is logged. The default file is SYSDATA:Log/Guardian, but this can be changed by editing Guardian.cfg. This program is the final solution you have always wanted for your CNet BBS. Well, you won't know if you don't try it, will you?! :-)
