I'm pleased to announce version 2.0.0 of “SSC Serv”, the first stable
version of the next generation of SSC Serv. The system statistics
collection service has been in public beta testing for five months and
has proven to be very stable.

While most changes from version 1.2 are not directly visible to the
user, there are some new features that have been requested repeatedly:

  * The DF, Disk and Interface plug-ins now feature a selection list
    that is very similar to the “ignore list” feature of several
    collectd plug-ins. This makes it possible to ignore the loopback
    network interface, for example.

  * It is now easily possible to configure multiple destinations for the
    Network plug-in or use an alternative port.

  * The Memory plug-in now reports data with far more detail. Instead of
    trying to approximate the behavior of the collectd plug-in under
    Linux, it uses the Windows-specific names.

  * The "DF" plugin is using the relatively new “df_complex” type to
    report its statistics now.


Customers can download x86 (32 bit) and x86-64 (64 bit) installer
packages from the “Download” page in the customer's area.

Free version

There's a free (as in “beer”) version of SSC Serv 2 available as well.
The free version comes with the CPU and Interface plug-ins and is
limited to one network destination to send data to. You can download the
free version from:



“SSC Serv” is a service for Microsoft®  Windows®, which collects system
statistics and submits them to a central statistics server. It is
similar to and compatible with collectd, a free and open-sourced
solution for UNIX® systems. SSC Serv is intended to be an outpost of
collectd in the Windows® world and isn't really useful without a
collectd server instance.
