  1. This is a great application that will hopefully unify heterogeneous monitoring in our environment :)

    The only thing missing seems to be the SMART plugin. Any suggestions on how to go about monitoring SMART with munin-node-win32?

  2. Thank you very much maintaining munin-node-win32. This tool is very useful.

  3. Hi,
    we are receiving timeouts and the Windows service stops reporting for Python external plugins. Are there maybe any enhancements planned, maybe a beta 2?

  4. I know this is an old thread, but I am trying to track down a non-installer version of munin-node-win32 and I need to manually setup all required configuration. Is that possible?
