RHQ 4.7 has been released and one of the two major features in this release are
the new charts that finally have replaced the year old charts that we had since the
start of RHQ project:

The new charts are implemented on with the awesome D3.js toolkit as I've written before.

The other big change is an upgrade of the underlying app server to JBoss EAP 6.1 alpha 1.

As always there have been many more smaller improvements and bug fixes.

Please check the full release notes for details. They also contain a list of commits.

RHQ is an extensible tool to monitory your infrastructure of machines and applications, alert operators on user defined conditions, configure resources and run operations on them from a central web-based UI. Other ways of communicating with RHQ include a command line interface and a REST-api.

You can download the release from source forge.


As mentioned above, the old installer is gone, so make sure to read
the wiki document describing how to use the new installer.

Maven artifacts are available from the JBoss Nexus repository and should also be available from Central.
