Hi Dave,

thanks for trying scalaris. I saw that you have problems with URLs as keys. 
Could you post the URL which crashed yaws so that we can fix the problem? I 
tried some URLs but it worked for me.

Regarding your screenshots: On the RRD tabs you can watch various system 
parameters over time. The "RRD Messages" is currently disabled. But we will 
reenable it in the near future. There, you could see how many messages of 
which type were sent. We are very interested in knowing which kind of 
messages cause the most network traffic.

The "RRD Status" is currently more useful. It tells you (from top to bottom) 
how many scalaris nodes are currently known, how many items/key-value pairs 
are stored in the system, how many items are stored per node on average, the 
standard  deviation of the average load, the average size of the routing 
table, and the standard deviation of the average routing table size.
