I sat zazen alone in an abandoned monestary atop a clouded mountain, the smoke of burning oud drifting down from the incense holder. And then I heard it upon the wind, "what is the sound of one server pinging?" The question resounded, only a whisper, but a whisper from everywhere, all directions, all at once. The whipser contained within it everything and nothing. My mind was filled then with chaos and confusion as I returned, though at my core disquieted, to the routine of my meditation. Day in and day out, one server pinging, echoing insistently in my mind. A great despondance settled upon me, was this task too much for us? Could we bear the burden of what it meant we would do? I consulted then the great master, begging for another path, a lighter load to carry. The master said nothing, and shook his head, consigning us to our fate... It is time to release Zenoss 4.2.3.
The importance of the sound of one server pinging though, I understood it now even as the master shook his head. It is frantic power, on call admins sleeping peacefully through the night, clouds bringing productivity to the masses anywhere they found themselves, and IT managers living a life without stress. With this great task we struggled, the weeks drew into long months and the weather grew cold. Still, though, we heard it, loudly now, clearly now, the sound of one server pinging. Coming down from the mountain, the great coders and engineers of Zenoss give their great accomplishment to the world, patching the bugs, unifying the RPM installer, and providing security out of the box. We at Zenoss have released 4.2.3.
