12-Jan-2013This is the first release of the new 3.0 branch. In this new 3.0.0beta1 version Monitorix has suffered a massive rewrite and now it has a modular code structure reducing, in some cases, its memory footprint and offering the ability to package every graph independently, making it more suitable for embedded systems.
This new version was mainly created to reach the same functionality and stability level as 2.6.0, and therefore doesn't include many new features, although a large number of bugs were fixed. The most important changes are it's new modular code and that the configuration file is no longer a Perl file. This should reduce the syntax error problems and will make more friendly the configuration task.
Another important aspect is that this new 3.0 branch don't breaks the compatibility with the 2.6.0
.rrd files. So you don't need to worry with your current historical data. The only graph that was affected is
pc.rrd which has been renamed to
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the new format of the configuration file and read its manual page for more information.
From now on and in the next beta versions I'll concentrate introducing new graphs and new features.
If you decided to give it a try, then please check periodically the Monitorix log file and report me if you find any issue.
The new Monitorix 3.0 branch will maintain the two modes (text and graph) in order to continue its commitment with those blind people or people with vision impairments that use Screenreaders software to interact with computers.
