Mackerel UI "Hacker Mode" theme released on April Fools’ Day, other news.

“Hacker Mode” Mackerel theme provisionally released, temporarily removed.

On April 1st as an April Fools' Day joke we released a special all-black theme for Mackerel’s UI that’s supposed to look like something a hacker in a movie would use. It was originally just a joke but it seems to have been quite well received, so we’ve taken it down temporarily to brush up the code, after which we will be re-releasing it officially.

mackerel-agent 0.15.0 and mackerel-agent-plugins 0.8.0 have been released!

The following changes have been made:

mackerel-agent 0.15.0

  • mackerel-agent will now ignore only device mapper data provided by Docker
  • added an option to test the agent by outputting metrics just one time with -once
  • forced suspension when implementing a plug-in is taking too long; increased agent’s stability
  • golang version will now be outputted when the argument -version is passed

mackerel-agent-plugins 0.8.0

  • mackerel-plugin-xentop has been added
  • metrics linked to InnoDB have been added to mackerel-plugin-mysql
  • the -header option has been added to mackerel-plugin-apache2
  • minor corrections/fixes have been made to mackerel-plugin-linux

Big thank you to everyone who made pull requests!
