No problem.

Before release 2, you had no choice - you just had to use a separate 
monitoring application.

Now, with release 2, you can still continue to run "legacy" clusters - 
and if you do you still need to install a separate monitoring application.

But, 90% of the effort for release 2 -- the interesting part -- provides 
a significantly more powerful resource management function (and all the 
code needed to support it).  We call this the CRM -- or Cluster Resource 
Manager.  Clever, eh?  ;-)
