slurm started as a FreeBSD port of the Linux ppp link monitor called pppstatus by Gabriel Montenegro. Hendrik Scholz ripped off the ppp dependent parts and the email checks to turn in into a generic network load monitor for *BSD, Linux, HP-UX and Solaris.
slurm was tested on a lot of operating systems (FreeBSD, OpenBSD, HP-UX, Solaris 7/8/9, MicroBSD, DragonFly, GNU/Debian Linux, SuSE 8) but there was no development going on since 2004.
Now I will put the sources to Github and change the build system from autoconf to scons to fix a compile error in Ubuntu's Oneiric distribution.
