Aranha is an application that uses an XML-RPC layer to retrieve information from one or more servers. The type of information gathered is implemented via plugins, and can be displayed or archived in several different ways. The data is gathered in Round Robin Databases (integrated with rrdtool) and can be accessed using a XUL interface available from the system. Plugins are very easy to write.

Release Notes: In this release, a new XUL interface is provided (for Mozilla browsers only). A major code cleanup was done and POD documentation was written.
Release Notes: This is the final release for this version. All plugins work with kernel 2.4 and up now. "make test" works on any kernel as well. The INSTALL document has a few more details. Idle apears with a "white" color (i.e. invisible) for the CPU plugin.
Release Notes: Plugins are now displayed in alphabetical order. A new client layout (CGI interface) was implemented, including a logo and a better appearance. A kernel 2.4 compatibility bug was fixed. A TODO item about the frontend stopping when 1 host fails was fixed. It now continues for all hosts that work. A TIMEOUT was added to client requests so that if a host is "down" it takes only TIMEOUT seconds to fail (default 10).
Release Notes: This release includes several plugins: a connections plugin, which measures TCP/UDP connections; a disk plugin, which measures disk I/O; a CPU plugin; a DF plugin, which uses Inline::C to fetch disk usage; a PS plugin, which counts processes based on a regexp; an ACPI plugin, which fetches ACPI info; a memory plugin, which measures memory and swap usage; and a net plugin, which mesures the number of bytes transferred on a network interface.
