My team is going to be developing a new application that will handle all of our monitoring. Currently that includes the monitoring of Sybase Servers, Oracle Instances, and MSSQL Servers. We will also be adding another Database Type that will house all of the Monitoring data. We will be using a MYSQL backend for this application. This application will be developed to run on a unix host so I need to be able to connect to my MSSQL servers from the unix host and insert rows of data back into the MYSQL database. To do this I think that we have decided on Perl for the language of choice. So I now get to go learn Perl. I am excited to learn another language as I am of the befleif that the more tools I have in my box the better off I will be. I will be starting my educational journey of Perl at
I am looking forward to this project and I will keep you up to date on the progress and features.
