Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and grids. It is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters. Ganglia is currently in use on over 500 clusters around the world and has scaled to handle clusters with 2000 nodes.

Release Notes: A modular metric interface for C and Python (DSO support) and scriptable metric module support with Python. All pre-existing metrics (CPU, network, disk, memory, etc.) were converted to metric modules. New metric modules were introduced: multicpu, multidisk, and tcp_conn status. Modular front-end graph support was added. Metric groups that can be viewed or hidden as desired were implemented. Additional scaling capacity was provided for systems with memory greater than 4TB. Native metric support for Windows was improved (Built with CygWin).
Release Notes: Host view metric graphs now work correctly. "Show Hosts" toggled works again. A memory leak in network metrics on Linux has been fixed. A spoof memory leak on gmond has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that caused XML port output to be truncated, fixes FreeBSD compilation errors, makes gmetad more resilient to round-robin database problems, makes "gmond -t" output more complete, updates the underlying Apache runtime library, expands the maximum size of gmetric messages, provides various minor PHP bugfixes in the Web frontend, and adds 3D pie graph effects.
Release Notes: New AIX metrics code. NetBSD support has been added. It is now possible to specify the PID file with gmond and gmetad. Bugfixes and backwards compatibility support for gmond. Compile fixes for MacOS Tiger. PHP fixes in the Web frontend. Various other bugfixes and code cleanups.
Release Notes: A serious gmond communication bug was fixed, the gmond.conf conversion code was fixed, gmond.conf now allows for include() statements, Linux 2.6.x machines now correctly collect network metrics, and some FreeBSD metric collection bugs were fixed.
