Hi, we use Cloudmin/Webmin to monitor all of our servers and sites. We use a combination of the "System and Server Status" and the "System Alerts" areas of Cloudmin, and it works very well for the most part. I have 2 questions:
1) Why are these separate anyway? There is some overlap between the two, and IMHO it would make a lot of sense to merge them.
2) There are other things we'd like to monitor that are totally outside the sphere of Cloudmin. We are building a mash-up control panel for our business that integrates all the things we wish to monitor and includes pathways for issues to reach resolution through a ticket system. I am looking for a way for the system to ingest information from Webmin from the "System and Server Status" module. Can this be done from the CLI like the cloudmin commands (e.g. cloudmin --list-status-history). If not, can it be done through XML-RPC on webmin? Is XML-RPC the only inroad to access those functions? (Sorry in advance if this is documented somewhere, I have trouble navigating the documentation). Or are there any other solutions for doing a mash-up like this that has access to Webmin's data?
