The developer team of OMD (Open Monitoring Distribution) released the version 0.50 today. This version contains bugfixes and lots of updated packages including Shinken, Thruk, PNP4Nagios, Mod-Gearman, check_oracle_health and check_mysql_health.
Jolokia and Jmx4Perl will go on tour this autumn. Roland Huss will talk about both projects in November at Devoxx, Antwerp, which is the biggest independent Java community conference in the world and at the Open Source Monitoring Conference, Nuremberg.
The summer break is over and Jolokia is one step closer to
1.0. Germans might reasonably argue, ‘ehm, what summer do you talk
about ?’ but at least 0.95 is now a fact and introduces two new
features. Very cool features, IMO.
Thruk 1.0.9 has just been released and contains a couple of cool new features. This version will also be in the next OMD release. Besides the release itself, new documentation about plugins and themes has been published.
Üblicherweise ruft man check_oracle_health mit den Kommandozeilenparametern
check_oracle_health --username <user> --password <pass> --connect <sid>
auf. Voraussetzung dafür ist natürlich, dass die SID in einem Verzeichnisdienst oder in einer Datei tnsnames.ora vorhanden sein muss.
There is a now an ‘unofficial’ OMD Repository OMD Repository.
This makes new installations and upgrading your OMD sites even more easier.
Mod-Gearman 1.0.8 has been released (download).
This release mostly contains bugfixes only and a minor change to use the identifier more often.
Lately I had to deal with Excel files as REST Http service response. I came up with a pretty clever validation mechanism in Citrus that I would like to share with you. You can apply the Excel validator to your Citrus project, too. It is not very complicated as you will see in this post.
