  1. Thank you for the suggestion, but due to a long line of feature requests piling up on our "desks", well only be able to start working on perfmon support as early as January :( I'll keep you posted in this topic.

    What's the current plan for this? I need to convert my Cacti scripts from Everest to AIDA64 but the WBEM interface has proven very unreliable due to DCOM security, and I would prefer to use some other interface.


  2. I did some investigation into running AIDA64 with a service wrapper similar to the old Everest_Svc wrapper

    The "Interact with desktop" feature has been disabled in Vista/Server2008/Windows7 (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd349385%28WS.10%29.aspx) so even after getting it to run as a service I am not able to display sensor readings with any of the widgets

    In order for that to work again the back-end will have to be split from the front-end and will have to communicate across some kind of IPC mechanism, which basically means that this will have to be implemented in Everest directly.

    What may be nice here is that such an architecture may also allow the UI to talk to everest engine on any PC


  3. There are already options to publish hardware information to a bunch of different places, however there are two other places that would still be useful.

    First, the data should be pushed to the perfmon subsystem so that the Windows built-in tools can access the information directly. For example, the Win7 Performance Monitor application under the Management system could use this data to build graphs for for CPU clock speed and temperature. There are many tools that use perfmon data in this way. WMI gets you part of the way there but until the data is published as perfmon classes it will always be less useful.

    Similarly it would be nice to see an AIDA64 SNMP extension DLL that added well-known OIDs for different counters. The existing Windows SNMP agent can be used for the main interface, so all you need is an extension agent. I can help you figure out issues such as OID namespace and MIB structure if you think it would be helpful.

    In conjunction with the ability to run as a service, both of these would open AIDA64 to full-time deep monitoring of always-on systems


  4. Please provide an option to register and unregister aida64.exe as a system service

    This will allow the program to run without administrator intervention, and solves a bunch of other problems too (auto-start, background monitoring, etc).

    BTW the old Everest Service Manager program does not seem to work with AIDA64 under Win7 so I am not able to upgrade until this is resolved.
