Server monitoring for web applications

My job is to manage and troubleshoot firewall problems. The monitoring part is done by another group of team. In short, one team will monitor the firewall for problems using the monitored security systems or system monitoring utilities. They will be the first point of contact for the customers if they have a problem with the firewall and the team will check and verify the status. If they can’t resolve it, they will escalate the ticket to me to troubleshooting and resolve the problem. System monitoring service is a must for corporations running with a lot of servers, web servers and other network devices since everything is important for the customers. Systems management will play the most important role in getting everything in order.

DWG file extension

Have you ever heard of DWG file extension? I don’t think so. First for all, rest assured, it’s not a virus or trojan type file extension. File Extension DWG or also knows as AutoCAD Drawaing Database is file extension type used by AutoCAD. AutoCAD is a computer aided design software mainly used for designing and drafting 2D and 3D objects developed by Autodesk Inc.


AutoCAD software usually used by architects and engineering students for developing and designing models on automobiles, engines, buildings and others. Before AutoCAD uses File Extension DWG, it uses DXF file extension or also known as Drawing Exchange Format for saving files. Now DXF file extension is obsolete since it can only support ASCII and binary rendition. DWG file format is licensed by Autodesk and they release read/write applications to non competitors to open the files.

If you need to open File Extension DWG, there’s an application that is called XnView that can be used to open DWG file type. It’s mainly used for opening graphic file types but can also be used to open DWG files. Although DWG files is not really popular file types on the internet, but for engineering and architects students or professionals, this is a famous file type in their every day’s life.

Do you have P1 Wimax?

I don’t know how many of you out there who already has P1 Wimax at their homes. I just subscribed P1 Wimax last week and I’m going to write a short review on my experience so far. If you guys never heard of P1 Wimax, Packet One is the first company to offer Wimax in Malaysia. Wimax is a technology based on wireless but implemented for a larger area like a town or larger area. This gives a wireless internet connectivity and portable wireless access at a larger scale. Enough of the introduction, let’s go into my experience with P1 Wimax so far.


Setting up the connection.

Connecting to P1 Wimax access point is very simple. Get the router unit out of the box, power it up and connect the cable to the LAN port of your computer. Make sure it’s set to DHCP and it will get an IP address from the P1 Wimax router. No need to set up any password as it will connect to the nearest access point automatically.

If you have trouble in getting the signal from an access point, locate the nearest access point from P1 Wimax website and make sure you face the router to the location. Usually people tend to put the unit near their windows but it doesn’t really make a difference unless it’s facing the access point. This is from my experience, feel free to let me know if there’s any other method that you find useful.
