Earth allows you to find files across a large network of machines and track disk usage in real time. The project consists of a daemon that indexes filesystems in real time and reports all the changes back to a central database.
This can then be queried through a simple, yet powerful, web interface. Think of it like Spotlight or Beagle but operating system independent with a central database for multiple machines.
Earth is initially focused on managing the explosion of data that occurs in digital visual effects work.
What's New in This Release:
· Many small usability improvements, several significant performance improvements for the Web application, reduced database size, code improvements, and a much improved command line interface to the Earth daemon.
