the ganglia development team is pleased to announce the release of ganglia 2.5.4. [Download Page] the largest improvements in this release are the result of the hard work of federico sacerdoti. he has modified gmetad to be interactive allowing for efficient primitive subtree queries of the xml tree. the web frontend has been updated to work with the interactive gmetad so you will notice very significant speed improvements when loading ganglia web pages. gmetad has also been improved to handle clusters with varying clocks (the graph timescales are no longer locked). the time and value thresholds for the gmond network monitors have been increased to prevent unnecessary network traffic. (ironic isn’t it?). martin knoblauch has also made ganglia more stable and correct on irix.
