Hey all…I recently discovered Mint and I’m loving it!
I just wrote a pepper which will alert you via email if you get more than N page views in a minute. The idea being if you get an unexpected traffic spike, you might want to know sooner rather than later.
This uses a shared memory segment to make it as fast as possible; only the config settings are written to the Mint database. When you install it, the pepper tries its best to test and make sure it’s going to be able to work, and will give you a message in the preference pane if not.
If you want to give it a try and give me some feedback, a 0.90 version is here: rassoc.com/gregr/samples/trafficthreshold-090.zip
Unzip to your pepper folder, and install from the Mint preferences.
Let me know how it works for you!
