release notes at:

Supported platforms:

  • [Open]Solaris
  • FreeBSD
  • NetBSD
  • OpenBSD
  • DragonflyBSD
  • Cygwin (no support for DSO yet)
  • AIX (no support for DSO yet)

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 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.
