  • Linux (Fedora/RedHat/CentOS, Debian, Gentoo, SuSE/OpenSuSE)
  • [Open]Solaris
  • FreeBSD
  • NetBSD
  • OpenBSD
  • DragonflyBSD
  • Cygwin (no support for DSO yet)
  • AIX (initial support for DSO now available - please provide feedback)
Please read all the README, INSTALL and other available documentation ( as a lot of things have changed since version 3.0. Use good deployment practices when upgrading from 3.0.x to make sure that you do not mix gmond 3.0 and 3.1 nodes in the same cluster (as defined by a multicast address or unicast collector node). The protocol that allows gmond nodes to communicate within the same cluster, has changed. However the XML packets that are passed between gmond and gmetad have remained compatible from 3.0.x to 3.1.x, allowing a 3.1.x gmetad to continue to pull data from an older 3.0.x gmond cluster. Ganglia Development Team [Update: Initial support for DSO is available on AIX]
