Hawkular, the monitoring platform, is happy to announce milestone release 1.0.0.Alpha9.

Rebase on Wildfly 10 (CR5)

The biggest, but also least visible change of this release has been the upgrade of the underling appserver to WildFly 10 (CR5), that also features the new AMQ Artemis messaging subsystem. On top of that Keycloak has also been upgrade to latest and greatest.

Agent installer screen

We made the agent installer screen generally available with the knowledge that we are going to change and move that in the next release. This way you can use it and the installer more easily to instrument your WildFly 10 and EAP 7 Beta servers.

Platform subtab for App servers

When you go to an individual application server you will now see a brand new platform tab, that gives you some information about the (virtual) host, the server is running on
