I am running 2 testing system on 2 different computers that are on a local network. The testing systems consist of an Arduino that is the interface between some hardware and computer. The computer program is in processing. Each system is a datalogging application; the arduino tests some hardware and sends data to computer and the processing is analyzing and saving data from time to time... (meaning not always and not on every test).
Here is what I want to do and I am looking for ideas... Given the 2 systems, I want to be able to monitor the 2 systems from a third computer on the same local network. I want this to be in way that this monitoring application does not interfere in any way with either of the test systems. The network monitoring should just indicate in some way whether or not the test system is running normally.
Any idea? Please also ask question... I tried explaining as best as I could...
