This is a significant release, containing both major architectual changes and many new features. See http://open-arm.sourceforge.net/changes.html for details.
Significant performance improvements -- the thing is finally approaching a point where it could be considered usable
Version 0.005 gets jumped over in this release, but there's a reason for that -- I used the 0.005 tag to demarcate the inclusion of the Xdocs content for the OpenArm project web site (http://open-arm.sourceforge.net/). However, there were no significant changes to the source code for 0.005. It was, therefore, a "documentation only" release, and did not merit a new version of the binaries.... read more
The SNMP mediator can now support threshold based alerting -- the mediator can be configured to only fire traps when the threshold is exceeded. You can also now configure whether you want traps to fire for blocking events at all or not.
Added an SNMP transport mediator -- you can use it to send the text of the various transaction events (start, stop, etc.) as SNMP traps. This needs some work still -- need to figure out a way to make it threshold dependent. That would allow you to, for example, only send a trap if the measured response time exceeded some threshold... Still thinking about that...
Lots of cleanup, code refactoring, some work on the unit tests....
The very first, pre-pre alpha version (0.001) of OpenArm has been released! OpenArm is a Java implementation of the ARM (Application Response Measurement) 4.0 standard from the Open Group.
