@ Alex:

These are weird times, with COVID-19 bringing the world slowly to a full stop...
Which gives me the time to think of all kinds of stuff and questions.
Like this one:
Just out of curiosity, are there any medium and/or long term visions/goals/ambitions for HostMonitor?
And if so, would you care to share these with us?

We have big "to do" list: new test methods, cluster options, redesign logging module, x64 version of all modules, Active RMA for Linux and macOS, RCC for Linux and macOS, hundreds tasks...

But we often correct this list depending on your needs. I think its more interesting to hear our customers.
What major changes do you need?

How would you rate your needs in the following features (from 0=don't need at all to 10=I am waiting for this option everyday for last 10 years)

- Cluster (2-3 HostMonitor instances should work as cluster so 1 failed server will not pause monitoring)
- Option to setup over 500,000 test items
- Possibility to perform over 5,000 tests/sec

- Active RMA for Linux?
- Active RMA for macOS?
- RCC for Linux?
- RCC for macOS?
- simplified version of RCC for iOS?
- simplified version of RCC for Android?

- Detailed log files and detailed fast charts (e.g. separate log file for each test item, store all results). Well, its possible in current version but we can improve such options

- Option to display charts for several selected tests on one screen (e.g. display cpu+memory+disk i/o charts)

- Variables that can be used in any action and provide information about other related test items. E.g. when Memory test fails and triggers Send E-Mail action, HostMonitor may send e-mail resolving %RelatedCPUInfo%, %RelatedProcessesInfo% variables using information provided by CPU Usage and Dominant Process tests

- IPMI related tests?
- Amazon cloud related tests?
- Azure checks?
- SonicWall tests?
- Compare Folders test (compare all files in the folders)?
- Compare all files from local folder with data provided by Web server or FTP server?
- Improve Text Log test (e.g. use expression to check for a word/number in specific position)
- more Windows related tests to check WSUS, HyperV replications, etc?
- DHCP Pool test for Windows, Linux, Cisco

Feel free to add more items.
I hope to see 100+ votes
