This morning I received an email from the administrator of the system stating "I recently setup some monitoring for the number of server processes on the servers. I noticed more than 1 (up to 3) server processes were on some of the servers, but only for a few seconds before disappearing. Are you able to see why this might be happening?"
Our company will soon be placing in the hands of this monkey the keys to a world wide distributed network of these servers plus hundreds of supporting servers and components.
How best do I voice my concerns to management? As a lowly programmer who has only had Linux experience since 1995 I hold no weight when it comes to decision on IT, whereas this monkey has managed to peel the free CD of Monkey IT monthly and install the latest free distro makes the decisions.
It is a scary world we live in."
