We have several thousand network devices currently in play:
mpetach at nowherespecial:/tftp/conf/latest> ls *.conf | wc -l
mpetach at nowherespecial:/tftp/conf/latest>
I hand read each device configuration check-in email that goes past
to see if there's errors in the configs, security violations, or other WTF-ish
elements in the config check-in, and mail back a nag notice to the
person who changed the config.
Currently, I received between 1900 and 3000 email messages a day.
I sleep 3 hours a night.
