This version includes a major overhaul of the user interface and many new capabilities and features. The PHP/Guava user interface framework has been replaced with the JBoss Portal framework and ICEfaces user interface library. The following key applications have been rewritten to take advantage of the new framework and to address feature requests and improvements from the community: application navigation and organization, login and session handling, Status Viewer, Administration, and Dashboard Viewer & Builder.
GroundWork Monitor Community Edition can give you insight into your computing infrastructure, allowing you to see the current and historical states of all your computers: servers, desktops, and laptops, all of your network devices, all of your services (like TCP/IP and Web services), and all of your applications (like mail servers and database apps). You can choose to be alerted when something goes awry via pager, SMS, email, or phone, and even set up automatic restarts or fall-overs.
