Projects / Aware


The Aware project is an effort to create a software framework for measuring, monitoring, and controlling computer system resources. It is intended to enable system administrators to tune system variables, set monitoring/security alarms, and build adaptive distributed systems. Aware modules may be linked into applications making them 'aware' and able to participate in the larger managed system.

    Release Notes: This major beta release provides a new Web-based interface using a built-in websever and a Sqlite database. The old PHP/MySQL GUI is gone. Installation and configuration were simplified and the run-time footprint is now very small relative to similar systems. The user interface now has threshold alerts on metrics (e.g, traffic), and more reports. There are new handlers for mDNS, Sqlite, and BigBrother. Two new applications included are a small faster static Web server (xap) and multicast file copy programs (mcctx and mccrx).
