It turns out that the logstash, elasticsearch, Kibana (ELK) stack is also very useful for mail server logs from PowerMTA. PowerMTA's main method of logging is to the accounting files, this is a CSV format file, and logstash has a CSV filter.
Regardless of outages and platform problems Blackberry is experiencing, I believe the phone that always tends to win in the long run is the one that wins both with the
user interface and durability. Early on this was Nokia, the user
interface was intuitive, steps were thought through to happen in the way
people would actually use it. You make a call, you get an SMS at the
same time, the SMS won't stop you from using DTMF tones to navigate your
voice mail, when deciding to read the SMS the default options enable
you to reply or erase with the easiest to reach button. This couldn't
be said for Ericsson phones at the time, where the steps that I described on the Nokia phone was a pain on the Ericsson. Durability wise Nokia also won. I've never had a
broken Nokia, I've only had one Ericsson phone and it broke a few
times. I suspect Nokia must have done something similar to what Apple
is rumoured to do, have lots of internal designs and prototypes compete
I somehow managed to escape having to deal with Veritas products over the years. Now I have been tasked to deal with some of it, so I'm taking this opportunity to familiarise myself with it. The product I'm looking at more specifically is Veritas Cluster Server, which is a different product from their popular file system and backup products. Veritas is now also a Symantec product, but I'm looking specifically at the shape of the product before the Symantec acquisition, because it's the form I have to support. Hopefully the details I cover here will help others who also end up having to support a VCS installation.
Description of VCS
Veritas Cluster Server is software used to facilitate and manage application clusters. Examples of these would be to manage an Oracle database cluster, a web application stack, or handle the clustering of Veritas file system products, or various combinations of all of these in a global operation.
