To meet some contract requirements, I've installed the Oracle MySQL Enterprise Monitor to monitor some systems, provide an IT manager a pretty dashboard. The agent for the servers, and the "monitor server" require Java. They install Tomcat (java server) as part of the process. Sigh.. My idling server load is way up and I feel like I need a bath. At least this server won't be on a public network. It is pretty, and I can see why a pointy haired IT manager type would love the minions monitoring this. Lots of dashboard charts and metrics. It belongs on a big screen next to CNN and the weather channel, with a few xterms tailing log files in a very small font.

I assume you've seen the picture of Fox News using a 55" Microsoft surface to display 4 tweets? (Via AppleInsider this morning, though it came across my twitter feed yesterday).

How well does it run on Raspberry PI? You could probably sell one with a 55" display with a 500% markup.

ebradway: I like your idea.. but thanks to the right licensing from Oracle, you pegged the markup without the monitor, although we could afford to buy one and not miss it. I had to give the VM that runs it 4gb of ram to make it happy. At 1gb it was eating swap space like candy.
