@Tomtom it DOES rock. Its a pain to configure the first time but it lets you see how well your stuff works for a dialup client during a thunderstorm without leaving your desk.

@tomtom The documentation for dummynet (which pfsense uses) says it can introduce delays.info.iet.unipi.it/~luigi/dummynet/#3d2a You can configure how many ms of delay to add.

comment What regular server maintenance is recommended for Hyper-v server VM's
@darkcat actually monitoring would have caught such a thing. By monitoring page load times for the webserver. And showing you a graph of cpu usage. Automated monitoring does what you can't no matter how hard you work - watch every server every minute of every day. And when you find something it didn't catch you reconfigure the monitoring system to catch it next time.

comment Is there a way to get windows update information from linux?
I have a vbs script that reports back available updates to my linux monitoring system. Can be run as scheduled task or through winexe. Will post it for you when I get back to my PC.

comment Windows server mirror drive as primary backup
Backups to tape, hard drives in a NAS or backup appliance, or to internet based storage. Restore with software that cones with it. I highly recommend Unitrends appliances. No affiliation, just a satisfied customer. They are easy enough to use for a novice and they offer installation services to get it up and running fast. The appliance can even run a backup as a virtual machine if the real hardware dies, so payroll keeps going while you wait for spare parts.

comment Alternatives to SMART for Monitoring HDD Corruption
@gravidthougts it will use a fair bit of disk IO. Whether or not its acceptable performance wise will have to be tested on your specific hardware. Even so, chkdsk wont catch all possible corruption.
