GroundWork Monitor 8.0.1 utilizes Docker containers and a Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment methodology. This means less waiting for feature development, security patches and bug fixes. You will get faster turnaround on bugs, feature enhancements, and security fixes, with little effort on your part to maintain your on-premises monitoring system. Version 8.0.1 is a maintenance release, with dozens of minor bug fixes from the prior release, 8.0.0.
There are various installation scenarios. Please refer to the documents listed under Related articles below, which are also accessible from the left side navigation.
A New Install below is for fresh GroundWork Monitor installations. An Update Install will update a previously installed version of GroundWork Monitor (8.0.0). A Migrate Install is considered a fresh GroundWork Monitor installation plus migration of your Monarch configuration from a previous version of GroundWork Monitor 7.x.
Additionally, there are two GroundWork Monitor installation methods available. The Install from Installer method is an offline initiated installation (no internet access required) which utilizes a GroundWork Installer file. The Install from Docker method is an online initiated installation (requiring internet connection) which accesses and utilizes Docker commands to install GroundWork Monitor 8 by directly pulling containers from a registry.
All this enables simplified installations, updates, and migrations.
For release 8.0.0 and 8.0.1, only the Install from Installer method is available.
