Release Notes: The first set of RPMS has been created for Intel Linux systems, specifically for Mandrake, but Red Hat is on the way. The Linux I/O probe (for disks) has been overhauled to give capacity, mount points, and performance details for each filesystem in a single table. 'change' was added to the 'irs' command. Clockwork had memory leaks fixed and was tuned to run less, which takes less CPU. Some GUI crashes were fixed and information improved.
Release Notes: Significant inroads into the efficiency of data updates were made, and GUI bugs were fixed to allow the appending of new data to the viewed graphs. For convenience, updates are suspended if the view is zoomed. Linux disk probe now returns service time where available and suppresses devices that don't respond with data. The Solaris system probe was completely reimplemented to produce absolute values rather than counters, making them more useful for reporting.
Release Notes: The Beta program has started. Peer to peer direct machine connections were implemented. Most local storage methods were deprecated and replaced with a new unified, modular system (ringstore). Many components were reimplemented for efficiency and consistency. Improvements were made to the GUI with new icons, more logical layout, and CSV reading. A full complement of manpages was written.
Release Notes: A bug that prevented Linux 2.4 kernels from collecting information using the sys probe was fixed.
Release Notes: Several significant changes were made, including support for the Linux 2.6 kernel and enhanced probe parameters. Many improvements were made to better support replication with SQL safe names and consistent data scanning. Command line usage was made more logical and attractive, some manual pages added, and README was included in the package. Better support was provided for first time users and many improvements were made to the GUI.
Release Notes: Startup was rewritten to do away with wrapper scripts and allow running in systems locations (/usr/bin) or in a single tree. As a consequence, the config files have to change. The collection agent (clockwork) now runs as a proper daemon, and a new switch allows the network server to be turned off.
Release Notes: The ability to replicate to (the forthcoming) harvest has been added. There are bugfixes, longer sample times to make the system lower impact, and additional utilities and probe improvements (especially for Solaris). The Web site has also been revamped.
Release Notes: The HTTP client code now uses libcurl, adding HTTPS as a method for secure connections. Solaris now has the same probes as Linux ( 'up' and 'down' have been added and 'name' improved). Maths uses floating point, and new simple commands have been added to stop the daemon.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to browse the repository, and introduced new probes for the recording of uptime and downtime in Linux and Solaris. Many small bugfixes and a major code reorganisation are also present, and work has started on the replication of rings to the repository (AKA harvest). Rationalisation has also removed the Web functionality, which now sits with the repository in harvest. Source is now available for the first time.
