Dear all, 

I am proud to announce the first production release of 
my RRD Framework project:

Its development was inspired by greatness and weaknesses of Cricket, 
and now the weaknesses seem to be beaten. As for the greatness, the 
time will show.

This is a powerful and extremely flexible RRD frontend, and unlike most 
others, it is data-oriented, not SNMP-oriented. 
Both externally collected data and those collected by its own 
SNMP collector are treated equally well. 

The look and feel of the graphical output is absolutely customizable
with text templates and view parameters. 

The data threshold monitoring allows to use flexible criteria based 
on RPN formulae, and the alarm actions are flexible too.

The SNMP collector is pretty efficient at runtime, but 
yet a bit slow at startup: for approximately 200 
network devices (Cisco VXR and GSR routers and LS1010 ATM switches), 
polling of interface counters and some host variables takes 
approximately 40 seconds. The initialization time is 
approx. 5 minutes after the configuration was rebuilt, 
and approx. 3 minutes on reading from cache. 
These results were obtained on dual-CPU 360 MhZ Ultra-Sparc II 

A basic script for obtaining the interface names and temperature 
sensor names from Cisco devices is implemented. 

Now the framework has started running in production mode at 
Cablecom GmbH, the company which has sponsored its development.

With regards,
