Patrick Debois has kicked of an interesting set of projects to put metric information on a common “bus”. For example he has implemented a ruby based daemon that parses Ganglia gmond packets and puts them on a ZeroMQ pub/sub bus. Once it’s there you can “subscribe” with a client of your choice and do transforms to the data e.g.
- feed graphite or another monitoring tool
- insert data into a SQL database
- feed Nagios using passive checks
Thanks to Patrick for a great idea and implementation. Now let’s get to work on useful subscribers.
Today we released version 2.2.0 of the Ganglia Web interface. New features present in this release are described in our “Upcoming Web Features post“.
Release can be downloaded from https://sourceforge.net/projects/ganglia/files/gweb/2.2.0/
