Graphical display of network testing tools
gravityd is a network management tool that allows administrators to see a diagram of monitored hosts on an IP network. This diagram graphically displays the result of various network testing tools with a "dot system" that lets sysadmins notice faulty servers more quickly, thus minimizing downtime. A down server has a red dot, a slow or partially failed node has a yellow dot, and a node that passes all tests is green. Users can configure the tests run on each node by adding new plugins to gravityd. gravityd's plugin architecture is open, which allows third party developers to write modules for gravityd to extend its functionality.
