About BuffaloWatch

As Buffalo County embarked on the deployment of BuffaloWatch we discussed its benefits with representatives from Public Safety, Education, Medicine, Factories and Office complexes. In each case we where assured that such a service would be a great benefit to the citizens of Buffalo County and surrounding areas.

In deploying BuffaloWatch we made every attempt to remove the barriers that come with the 'commercial' products available on the internet.

BuffaloWatch is sponsored solely by Buffalo County and contains no ads. The development cost have been underwritten by funds from Buffalo County and private donations.

BuffaloWatch can rest in the 'tray' and never be called upon other than when an alert is sent from the Buffalo County LEC, Amber Alert or Nationally (such as a change in the Homeland Security status). It has been designed so that alerts that effect only a portion of the county and not all of the county can be directed only to that area. To accomplish this 'no cookies' are used if the application is installed and run without modification. Should the user change the 'Local Forecast' page to a zip code other than 68847 then a 'cookie' would be placed to record that change of information needed.

BuffaloWatch, 'Weather Bug' and network congestion. BuffaloWatch utilizes a built-in cache server that retrieves the information from the Internet and then distributes the updates to all of the machines on the network.

There are 2 ways to setup the cache server. One is automatic and is called the Roving Cache Server. It operates with no setup and no user/admin intervention whatsoever. It operates like this: The first app to be started on the network sets itself as the cache server and all other apps connect to it to get the data. Now, if the app that is acting as the cache server gets shut down the very next app that tries to get info from it will know that the cache server is no longer available and it will then become the cache server.

Secondly, is to use a command line option to force a specific app to be the cache server.

According to the network monitoring and testing provided by the City of Lincoln and Lancaster County, a network with 2,000 desktops running a sister application called 'InterLinc' will only use bandwidth equivalent to a single streaming video. With this in mind our research showed that Lincoln has the hospitals, Department of Health, schools, private industry and the general public all in the emergency communication loop.
