[Announce] M/Monit 2.0
[Announce] M/Monit 2.0
Thu, 16 Apr 2009 21:33:47 +0200
FYI: I'll refrain from posting M/Monit news to this list in the
future, but this is special since M/Monit finally is available and I
thought you might be interested.
I'm happy to announce that M/Monit 2.0 has been released today and is
now available. M/Monit 2.0 can be downloaded from:
We are now officially out of the beta phase and this is the final 2.0
Judging from previous beta releases, it seems that we have a 2 month
turnaround time for new releases. We'll try to continue with this
frequency, at least this first year as we have plans for many new and
useful features, both in M/Monit and Monit. We'll keep you posted.
A big, big thanks to all of you who have helped us test M/Monit during
the beta phase and for giving us useful suggestions, feedback and
ideas. This is highly appreciated!
The changes in this release compared to the previous beta 7 are minor
tweaks behind the scene and alignment of M/Monit events with Monit.
There are a few database changes, and if you want to upgrade from M/
Monit beta 7, you can run an upgrade script for the database as
explained in the change log: http://mmonit.com/dist/CHANGES
We also provide a migrate script in the upgrade directory if you want
to move over from SQLite to MySQL or PostgreSQL. This is recommended
if you run Monit on more than 10 hosts, as SQLite can have scalability
issues with more hosts.
With more than 50 new features and bug fixes, we are also happy to
announce that Monit 5.0 is out of beta today and available from http://mmonit.com/monit/download/
M/Monit 2.0 requires this version of Monit.
We hope Monit 5.0 will be picked up by package distributors shortly,
so it will be available directly in distributions as well.
If you have questions or comments about this release, please contact
