Greetings All,

This is to announce version 0.4.0 of Hawk, a web-based GUI for
managing and monitoring Pacemaker High-Availability clusters.

You can use Hawk 0.4.0 to:

  - Monitor your cluster, with much the same functionality as
    crm_mon (displays node and resource status, failed ops).

  - Perform basic operator tasks:
    - Node: standby, online, fence
    - Resource: start, stop, migrate, unmigrate, clean up. 

  - Create, edit and delete primitives, groups, clones, m/s

  - Edit crm_config properties.

Hawk is intended to run on each node in your cluster, and is
accessible via HTTPS on port 7630.  You can then access it by
pointing your web browser at the IP address of any cluster node,
or the address of any IPaddr(2) resource you may have configured.

You will need to configure a user account to log in as.  The
same rules apply as for the python GUI; you need to log in as
a user in the "haclient" group. 

Packages for various SUSE-based distros can be obtained from the
network:ha-clustering and network:ha-clustering:Factory repos
on OBS, or you can just search for Hawk on software.opensuse.org:


I don't have Fedora/Red Hat packages yet, but building an RPM
from source is easy:

  # hg clone http://hg.clusterlabs.org/pacemaker/hawk
  # cd hawk
  # hg update tip
  # make rpm

My apologies to non-RPM-based distro users (packaging assistance
gladly accepted!)

Further information is available at:


Please direct comments, feedback, questions, etc. to myself
and/or (preferably) the Pacemaker mailing list.

Happy clustering,
