Windows Services Dependency Viewer – Home

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/12

Cool tool: [WayBackWindows Services Dependency Viewer – Home:

Windows Services Dependency Viewer is a simple tool that provides the following information:

  • Windows service dependent and antecedent services
  • Services grouped by process
  • Service details (from Win32_Service WMI class)
  • Service process details (from Win32_Process WMI class

This tremendously helps getting an overview of which Windows Services to monitor for running state: if for instance you need monitor SMTP, then you do not need to monitor Event Log as that is a requirement.

Zabbix user groups and user type

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/12

Like any product documentation, Zabbix’ is shattered and terse.

So here is how I ensured a specific user could edit the items of hosts:

  1. Added new user group named Administer Configuration Host Items containing user Example having these read-write composing permissions:
    • Applicatie ontwikkel test
    • Applicatie productie Approve demo VPN
    • servers Dbases Kantoor applicaties
  2. Changed User type of user named Example from Zabbix User to Zabbix Admin so access to the Configuration tab is granted.

See 2 Permissions [Zabbix Documentation 3.0] for User type explanation; excerpt:

Zabbix Admin: The user has access to the Monitoring and Configuration menus. The user has no access to any host groups by default. Any permissions to host groups must be explicitly given.

It looks like gmail finally understands Outlook Calendar entries

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/12

For a very long time, gMail did nothing with Outlook Calendar entires.

So I had to view at the message source, then translate them to Google Calendar entries myself.

Content-Type: text/calendar; charset="utf-8"; method=REQUEST
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64


As of late, they seem to be processed into Google Calendar compatible entries. Nice!
