This release fixes several issues that was reported during the last two years. It adds some new features:

  • A new -C option to generate reports for all CPU only instead of per CPU.
  • charts are now drawn in separate HTML pages and loaded into an iframe.

Here is the complete list of changes:

    - Use jqplot library by default in crontab example.   
    - Update copyright year.
    - Add multi:no into configuration file to default samples plugins.
    - Fix not working exclusion of mount point from the disk monitoring
      type. Thanks to Hofmann Gerhard for the patch.

      writes were zero for the measurement period. Thanks to Frank Crawford

    - Add support of plugins with "multi" type: when one plugin returns
      list of several monitored values at all. Useful for something like
      df monitoring -- when it returns all filesystems. Thanks to Anton
      Fedorov for the patch.
