this is primarily a bugfix release
steve wagner submitted a patch that vastly improved the efficiency of
gmetad. previously, a gettimeofday() call was made for every round-robin
database updated whereas gmetad 2.5.3 doesn't require any gettimeofday()
calls. time is gathered from the XML. this may help users who experience
gaps in their gmetad images.
federico sacerdoti tracked down a serious bug in gmond that could lead to
stack corruption for long metric names (>32 characters). he also made the
cleanup thread more efficient and fixed a bug which prevented timed out
metrics from being deleted.
martin knoblauch and jack perdue provided code for initial HPUX support.
phil radden fixed a bug on linux which caused bytes_in and bytes_out to
occasionally be incorrectly reported.
2.5.3 can be downloaded from the ganglia web site
