Overseer 5.0.101 has been released

Posted on December 7th, 2012

I have just released Overseer 5.0.101. This release actually has a very powerful feature, that’s been requested by many customers. Customers have requested that upon failure of a resource, that Overseer can launch a program with parameters. As of 5.0.101, Overseer has an ‘Actions’ system that lets you do just that– launch a program with parameters upon first failure, every failure, every check, recovery, or new events(event log entries). ┬áThis can be very useful for many different types of functionality.

I’ll be posting more blog posts detailing how this works, but for now I just wanted to get this released. You can add/edit your actions under Manage->Actions, and assign them to a resource using the ‘Actions’ section when editing a resource. The help file(both online and the local version) has been updated with information on actions.
