Software

A new release of Pandora FMS is coming right after Christmas. Pandora FMS 4.0.3 is a minor update with new interesting features and a lot of bugs fixed in order to make this version more reliable.

One of the new features is Command snapshot. It allows you to get a static image of any command output of your system. With this new feature, for example, you can find out why the CPU usage of your server is high by comparing it with the "top" command output. The second new feature is Graphic comparison. It helps you be updated on the evolution of your system by comparing one time range with the previous one. It is very useful when big changes are made in your system.

We are committed to create a good product. That is why, this release has a lot of bugs fixed and the improvements mentioned below.

-Faster events view with several bugs fixed.
-Improved database management in order to get the main database and history database working in the same host

So what's an open source advocate who wants to work with web applications to do? You turn to an open source alternative, of course. Let's take a look at three of them. Read more

Hackable voice-controlled speaker and IoT controller hits KS

SeedStudio’s hackable, $49 and up “ReSpeaker” speaker system runs OpenWrt on a Mediatek MT7688 and offers voice control over home appliances. The ReSpeaker went live on Kickstarter today and has already reached 95 percent of its $40,000 funding goal with 29 days remaining. The device is billed by SeedStudio as an “open source, modular voice interface that allows us to hack things around us, just using our voices.” While it can be used as an Internet media player or a voice-activated IoT hub — especially when integrated with Seeed’s Wio Link IoT board — it’s designed to be paired with individual devices. For example, the campaign’s video shows the ReSpeaker being tucked inside a teddy bear or toy robot, or attached to plant, enabling voice control and voice synthesis.
