Release Notes: Habitat 2.0 has now reached alpha and is ready for testing. It sports a new interface based on Gtk 2.x/3 with simplified navigation and is made faster by using client-side data caching. Default storage is now reduced in size by using periodic optimization to remove old data. Functionality and platform coverage will increase as testing continues and the authors shake out the GUI bugs (check the README for the current issues list). The website and documentation have been updated, and there are binaries for Linux. The Alpha is stand alone with peer-to-peer connectivity.
Release Notes: This release adds minor (but vital) fixes to long-term reliability. Restarting of the daemon from the job table has been fixed and re-enabled, and there is now a job to restart it every 24 hours. Job tables now run from the filesystem by default, with multiple tables supplied for different modes of operation. There's a new script for the daemon status, a new job method to shut down completely, and more error messages.
Release Notes: This version enables the process probe by default but with a new filter to limit the data collected and save space. The filter ignores mostly idle processes (under 1%) and is easy to customise with a simple set of directives, including floating point values. Outbound replication to Harvest was refactored and improved. 64-bit builds are now supported, and an experimental build for Mac OS X (X11/macports) was included (although with no collection yet).
Release Notes: This is a minor bugfix release to allow Linux sessions to run for longer, to give better fonts for Gtk 1.x compatibility, and to collect some VM metrics.
Release Notes: The repository is now implemented for download over the Internet, using Harvest as mass central storage. Many bugs were fixed. Binaries are now provided for Fedora, Ubuntu, Mandriva, and Solaris 10.
Release Notes: The GUI was improved with amendments to the log message window, more capability with management of data choices, and the ability to zoom in and out of charts by key. Client accumulation of data was limited to the selected timebase. Bugs for stability were fixed, and graph redraws were streamlined. Process and I/O probes were improved. Route defaults were revised.
Release Notes: The Solaris I/O probe now collects partition information (although its net probe isn't yet included). The makefile was changed to improve static and dynamic linking, which is especially important for Solaris, which statically links Gtk+ into ghabitat and curl into libiiab (one of habitat's own shared libraries). Automatic configuration is supported when building on Fedora, Mandrake, and Solaris.
Release Notes: Ghabitat, the graphical tool, is now able to display individual data rows in their own popups for better inspection (double click the row). A new, dynamically updated and colorful log popup alows problem diagnosis while still looking at data (click the "bomb" button on the status bar). The Linux process probe (ps) and the Solaris storage probe (io) complete their renovations to give greater coverage, removing old values and providing new ones.
Release Notes: This releaes adds new features to display CSV and tabular text files, and now sizes its graphs to a suggested maximum, which is great for percentage displays. The host information is displayed in more places and there were several bugfixes in the handling of data.
Release Notes: Security was tightened by running as a non-root user. Many bugs were fixed. A lot of improvements were made in diagnosing unexpected situations. The graphical interface was improved with fixes and improvements to the help menu, the choice tree, and graphics titles. Solaris I/O is now close to Linux's capability, and replication with harvest has been confirmed.
