Virtual server monitor updated

Virtual server monitor (vsmon) is a monitoring tool for Linux-VServer that gives a system administrator a global view of all vservers running on his park.

For now, it does not offer control over the vservers' life cycle (e.g. provisioning, start, stop, and restart operations). To use vsmon, you must deploy one backend on each vserver host and one frontend, preferably in its own vserver.

What's New in This Release:

· The frontend was reworked to display a summary of all hosts.
· An owner can be assigned to each vserver.
· The backend can be used on hosts without Linux-VServers, and it no longer obtains IP addresses.
· The libdnet dependency was removed.
· The parsing of /proc/"pid"/stat now works for kernel 2.6.18.
· A Nagios plugin was added, which enables the use of the vsmon backend to monitor a host disk, memory, and swap.
· The plugin monitors all mount points according to an "intelligent" algorithm, which determines warning and critical thresolds as a function of the total size of the partition.
