Dear friends/users!

I've just published an updated 8.3 version. This is a minor update, just to fix some abnormal issues and add few more features...

Here is a list of changes coming with update:

Fixes :

  • dim_STAT-Server script is now killing all clients too when involved with "stop" action
  • Standard Bookmark kit was not installed by default within a template database (special thanks to Peter Hausdorf to find it!)
  • Linux iostat binaries updated for STAT-service to fix broken output in some cases (special thanks to Melanie Ashworth-March to find it!

Improvements :

  • Added UNIX signal traps to WebX
  • Replaced crypt() function to reduce WebX binary dependencies (now again compatible back to Solaris 2.6)
  • Added active collect(s) information (extending active connections)
  • etc..

Database schema :

  • Bookmark name size was increased to 32 characters now!

EasySTAT additional options :

  • COMPRESS and TIMER options are now integrated within EasySTAT.sh and enabled by defaul
  • Run forever if Hours == 0
