Hello all,

Let me introduce the first release of the Torrus framework,
formely known as RRFW. I've been working on this project during almost 
three years, and now it has grown to a solid production system.

The main components of Torrus are:

-- Modular collector engine with flexible scheduling. It also 
encorporates the SNMP collector module, capable of collecting up to 
a hundred thousand SNMP objects every 5 minutes on a dual-CPU server.
It uses RRDtool as the data storage.

-- Modular SNMP discovery engine. It supports now many generic and 
vendor-specific MIBs. Most of nice features come for Cisco gear, 
but it's relatively easy to add new features, should it be requested.
For Cisco devices, the following features are supported, in addition 
to standard interface traffic graphs:
  + CPU, Memory, Temperature sensors. For modular routers, memory and
    temperature is displayed for every module that has them.

  + SAA agent statistics

  + Class-based QoS statistics - the most full and automated 
    implementation of CISCO-CLASS-BASED-QOS-MIB monitoring in the 
    open-source world

  + DOCSIS statistics. In addition to generic DOCS-IF-MIB, it supports
    Cisco-specific variables, such as modem quantities and upstream 

  + MAC accounting statistics, automatically binding to the peer IP 
    or BGP AS number.

-- Threshold monitor. Threshold definitions may seem quite 
   sophisticated, but they allow you to cover a broad range of 
   threshold conditions. It is possible to build the threshold 
   expressions on several datasources. The package also includes
   utilities for sending email and SNMP trap alerts.

-- Web interface with user authentication and authorization. 
   It runs on top of mod_perl and Apache HTTP daemon, and allows 
   to browse the data sources in a hierarchical way. 

Torrus is a free software and it is distributed under GNU GPL.
Large part of the development has been sponsored by Cablecom, a big 
cable TV and Internet service provider in Switzerland.
