Hawkular, the monitoring platform, is happy to announce the release of its sixth milestone 1.0.0.Alpha6.

Alert Center

We have started providing the so called 'Alert Center', a place where you can see all fired alerts and alert definitions in one place

We have also started providing support for organizations, where a user may belong to zero, one or more organizations. This to support multi-tenancy in Hawkular, so that it could be run in a central installation, but with multiple separate departments only seing their own resources

Creation and deletion of Data sources

There is also a new dialog to add a Datasource to a managed WildFly server

Agent installer

We have now a little helper, the wildfly-agent installer, that makes it much easier to install the agent inside a WildFly server.

Run the installer
java -jar target/hawkular-wildfly-monitor-installer-0.10.1.Final-SNAPSHOT-standalone.jar \
  --module=/path/to/ \
  --wildfly-home=/opt/wildfly-9.0.0.Final \

Hawkular Agent is then installed to Wildfly Server /opt/wildfly-9.0.0.Final as a module and is able to report to Hawkular Server located at http://myServer:8080.

Note that the installer uses a default of jdoe/password for user/password that is encoded in a properties file inside the installer jar. If you need a different value you need to edit those properties.

We will in the future (also) support the WildFly Feature packs.

There are two easter-eggs in the release :-)
