Is this a good concept?

Just starting to use the Web side of Xojo and looking at doing some stats monitoring on a web server. Basically the UI will be a Xojo web app (prob run under cgi as opposed to a standalone).

The main worker bee is likely to be a linux console app that will fire off using cron, gather the info, take any actions if required (such as email) and also update an MySQL database.

Users will see gateway to that data when they login with live updates if they remain logged in.

All testing will done using Amazon AWS.

Before I head down this yellow brick road, if anyone has done similar or hit roadblocks I’d be grateful etc.

Thanks, Richard
