rpc.rstatd for Linux version 4.0 has been released. This version fixes some critical problems that caused rpc.rstatd to be of only limited utility on 2.6 kernels. The new release incorporates some essential architectural changes, which justify the version number switch to 4.0.
textmeter is a curses based rstat client, similar to xmeter or perfmeter. It can monitor a set of hosts and display graphs of various system activity parameters using a text terminal.
A small bug in rstatd caused the network numbers to be incorrect, this has been fixed. If no other bugs are found, a final release will be made available within a week.
rstatd-3.08-alpha is a version of rstatd with a new
data collection layer, which is more easily adapted to
new kernel versions. In particular, it works (reliably) with
2.6 kernels. It has been tested on 2.4 and 2.6. It should
also work on 2.2 but has not been tested.
An archive file with version 3.07 is now availalbe in the download area.
It supports now protocol version 4 and configuration via GNU configure.
The rstatd project is now fully operational.
A (simple) project homepage is up and there is a stable source package for Linux kernels 2.2.x and 2.4. The sources are also contained in the CVS repository.
