The first release of the Hyperic HQ 5.0 beta is now available for open source users.
Major enhancements to this release include better support for vFabric products, including new plugins for tc Server 2.7, Web Server 5.1, and GemFire 6.6.2 (only available in the enterprise version later this year). The new version also includes many hard-to-see new improvements such as bug fixes, and improved performance and scalability.
This is an early beta of the Hyperic HQ 5.0 release, and is not
meant for production environments. Users are welcome to put the product through its paces and provide feedback on any bugs into the Hyperic Bugs Forum (http://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/appplatform/hyperic/user/bugs).
Editor's Note: Clarified the vFabric products will only be available in the enterprise version later this year.
