Micromuse Ltd / IBM (http://www.micromuse.com/)
- Probe development:
Developed numerous Netcool/OMNIbus probes, including SNMP trap daemon
probe, ICMP ping probe and probe for Marconi PFM.
- Netcool/OMNIbus Integration Products Infrastructure:
Developed and/or maintained various components of the Netcool/OMNIbus
infrastructure, including patching system, build system, probe
libraries, probe java libraries and probe PERL libraries.
- Netcool Installer:
Co-designed and implemented a Netcool suite wide installation system
for both Windows and UNIX. The installer GUI is based on the
Mozilla application framework. The UNIX installer back end is based
on a proprietary package system designed and implemented by myself.
- Netcool/Precision SDK:
Designed an SDK architecture for the Netcool/Precision product. This
architecture is yet to be implemented.
Stream-lined probe development and testing, from implementation in C
or Java (or PERL) to testing of single target against multiple
versions of Netcool/OMNIbus. Such stream-lining allowed the OMNIbus
Integrations team to increase their productivity to previously
unheard-of levels within Micromuse.
Implemented the Netcool Installer framework, allowing the use of
a single cross platform installer across Windows, Linux, Solaris,
HP-UX and AIX, with a single GUI across all platforms. Once all
Netcool products are ported to the new installer framework,
solutions that integrate multiple Netcool products should be easier
to create and deploy.
