I've been working on a few new features in SolView, and it's about time for a new release. So that's version 0.45 out of the door.
The major feature this time is a sneak peek of a prototype I've put together for the System Explorer. See the image here for a sample:
You can see the left hand panel containing a tree view of the various bits of the system that SolView has found. Selecting any of them show whatever information I can find - either by running external commands, or by using JKstat to grab statistics.
This is both skeletal and a prototype. But it does try to answer the question: what's in my system, and how do the bits relate to each other? It's the relationships that I'm trying to capture: so I have a disk, but what's it used for, and where's the load on it coming from? And there's clearly a lot more to do in this regard.
