  1. nice article, just i have a question, when i tried to run de OSwatcher on solaris, the next error is appearing:

    oswbb heartbeat:Tue Nov 24 11:13:14 CST 2015
    ld.so.1: expr: fatal: libgmp.so.3: open failed: No such file or directory
    ld.so.1: expr: fatal: libgmp.so.3: open failed: No such file or directory

    do you know any about it ??

  2. Sorry I don’t have access to any Solaris box .
    libgmp seems to be GNU MP portable library written in C for arbitrary precision arithmetic

    Can you find libgmp.so on your system ?
    If yes does your LD_LIBRARY_PATH point to that directory ?
    Is this a Solaris 10 Sparc system ?
