Monitoring clusters and Grids since the year 2000

Monitoring Core v2.2.0 Released!

  • Preston Smith patched a wrong sysctl to get free memory for freebsd machines
  • Added mute and deaf mode for gmond
  • Created a new ganglia-monitor-core-lib distribution for the libganglia library. Ganglia has the start of a C API now.
  • Moved all the documentation to DocBook, added much more information and updated/removed what was there. Output docs to ./docs directory of the distribution in both HTML and PDF form. Also installed Doxygen to document libganglia.
  • Add the Ganglia Status Tool (gstat) which allows you to check the status of your cluster from the commandline. Hosts are sorted with least-loaded nodes at the top of the list.
  • Removed the need for the POSIX mutex in pre_process_node() allowing for faster processing of incoming multicast data
  • Changed gmond to not count itself as a running process when reporting the number of running processes.
  • Doc Schneider changed the way ganglia builds RPMs to support non-root builds as suggested by an anonymous SourceForge user
