Firefox Plugin Shows Host Portal Info

ALUIportalhost.jpgAre you familiar with the routine of opening the HTML source of an ALUI portal page, scrolling to the bottom, and checking for the name of the host server? This is something I've done countless times in load balanced environments when trying to test or debug a server.

I decided to make a Firefox plugin that will extract that portal host information then display it at the bottom of the browser so that I can immediately see the portal host.

I've had several other people try this plugin, and they found it useful. I hope you'll find it helpful too. To install it, download the plugin, then drag it onto your Firefox browser. It's been tested on FF versions 1.5 through 3.5.

Thanks to Andreas Mersch who improved on my original extension. With his addition, the browser will now display the portal performance information along with the portal host. The new version can be downloaded with the same link as before.
