My colleague in France, Bertrand Gugger, has been hard at work implementing SMS alert-sending capabilities for the Net_Monitor package. This functionality depends upon the nacient Net_SMS package, so we will be looking for ways to create end-to-end (from interaction with the gateway to display on the device) testing before release. It will be interesting to see how SMS providers respond, since this software could provide a boost to their offerings as system administrators adopt Net_Monitor for monitoring systems. Will the providers get it, and grant us test accounts? We shall see.
