Dear PerfParse users and developers,
There are quite a few people working on various parts of the project
today. I think it's time we all introduced our selves, and said a
little about where we would like to take our project.
To help this, I'll like people who have been involved recently. I hope
some of you may reply to this and let us know a little more about your
Starting with our two newest members:
Benoit and Guillaume.
They will be working to bring PP to Debian. If they are on these
mailing lists, maybe they can say a little more.
Now our oldest members:
Ben, Garry, Yves.
My self, I started this project in order to answer a posting on the
nagios-plugin mailing list, around May 2003. The entire project was
then just one line of code. Something like:
tail -f serviceperf.log | awk | mysql
I then wrote PP as a demo and for my personal use. This very soon
became PerfParse with the encouragement of many users.
Garry joined and turned my attempt at a web site into the professional
looking site we now have. He also provides some great documentation. I
am sure most of our users found PP through Garry's documents. I thank
him that the projects early success.
Yves re-wrote a lot of the code, as well as building the product into a
GNU automake environment, internationalizing the code, and making the
code more modular. Without his help the product I am sure would have
never developed into anything like it's current state. His needs and
my needs are different, which gives the project the ability to answer to
many users needs.
Flo described him self as a 'slow coder'. From his workings so far on
tiki/wiki and perfparse, this can be his only short falling. His work
is as good as the best coder you are likely to meet. Flo is working on
a php front end for PerfParse, using similar methods as tiki/wiki. A
suggested goal to merge Nagios PP into a wiki type product, giving to
the user the ability and advantages of all systems.
Rene is working to translate the documents into German.
Tim has contributed many ideas, as well as some scripts to the product.
Most recently he has given us the Raw Data Summary storage. This will
greatly enhance the product.
Friedrich is working on a conversion to PostgreSQL, which should be
released sometime very soon. I am sure this will open PerfParse to many
Massimiliano is looking into a conversion to Oracle storage.

testing, ideas and code to the project. Including in no order:
Charles Allred, Chris Donovan, Dirk Beer, Ethan Galstad, James
