Building Ambient Conditions Over the Network (B.A.C.O.N.)¶
See the BACON in action!
All of the BACON units were pulled since the project was completed.
A device for monitoring environmental conditions in your server room without emptying your wallet. The BACON modules can be distributed throughout a network, providing information on the temperature, humidity, noise and light level in each server room.
This data is then easily retrieved via a user friendly webpage interface on demand or by a Network Management System such as Nagios or Zenoss.
Mmmmmmmmmm, bacon...an early prototype using the mbed development platform.
A longevity test was run from December and basically lasted until June when Joe graduated and pulled the unit from the machine room it was monitoring.
