One person inquired about me hosting a game server (two separate domains).
I think that might end up being too much??

I was gonna ask about this. I've seen SNMP out there before. What is it? I
need something that will analze the logs and email reports. Will SNMP
record CPU capacity and usage?? Is there such a beast?? I can sit and
watch it in X, but I really don't like using X.

Brings up another question (better use another thread though).
