I got much busier than expected in the first months of my consulting endeavor. Of course this is a good thing and I appreciate all the interest and support!
Now it’s time to let the world know, where NeDi has come to. I’ll be talking about the development, new features and where it’s going on a number of occasions in Switzerland and Germany:
Development is moving along and I’m able to provide a beta version for the early adopters among you. It’s available on the Download page and simply be updated via System-Files. Either initialize the DB or follow the steps on the bottom of the Readme.txt to adjust your current DB scheme. I wouldn’t recommend using this version in production just yet, though. The HTML5 rework is still in progress and new features will be added, but it should give you a good first impression. Speaking of impressions, have a look at the updated gallery on the bottom of the GUI page…
Being in San Francisco is great! I met a lot of interesting people already and got to spend quality time with the guys from Groundwork!
We’re going to have a webinar this Thursday at 11:30am PST (20:30 MET) around SDN and what it means for monitoring.
You’re welcome to participate (Link to replay on G+).
Just sign up using the form to the right, if you’re interested!
I did mention that big announcement, so here it is:
I took the leap and became a freelancer! Besides the spring header, you’ll notice the Services menu on the top! This is a big step for me and NeDi and I’m determined to make NeDi more professional than ever before!
The start went extremely well and I’m going to be in San Francisco soon for the first official project overseas!
Last but not least, I did have time to work on NeDi itself as well. The next release should be ready soon and greatly improve the user experience. As its slogan suggest it finds your IT, right? Well here’s the searchbox for it…
Change of plans, I’ll be pesenting after all. Better yet, I actually intend to show the latest development snapshot live! So don’t miss out if you can make it (details in previous post
Well it’s time for OSSM in Bolzano again. I’ll not be presenting but certainly around for a chat or two!
I’d highly recommend this event, especially since Peter Haag’s going to talk about nfdump and NfSen this time. For all who don’t know, it’s one of the best Netflow solutions out there…
With the CeBIT coming up next month I can offer some free tickets! Contact me in the forum, via mail or Google+, if you’re interested in visiting me and my sponsor. I’ll be with Sector Nord at Gemeinschaftsstand-Exclusiv, Halle 6 (A50) from Monday thru Wednesday.
The week after on March 15, Michael Schwartzkopff gives a speech at the Chemnitzer Linuxtage.
Last but not least Alain Mowat from SCRT informed me about a vulnerability in the function plotter. However this module is disabled by default and I’m going to remove it completely from upcoming versions. You can simply delete Other-Plot.php and inc/graph.php to be on the safe side…
Stay tuned as I have some great announcements to make very soon!
After a shorter than usual development cycle, a new release has arrived. The changes are listed in the README.txt, which is displayed after upgrading via webgui. Many new enhancements like Postgres backend, interactive maps and new reports made it in. Find some pictures at Google+ for more information. You can contact me for professional consulting and support now…
I’ve enjoyed beautiful beaches in the Maledives for 4 weeks indeed!
However I’ve also learned from a rather annoying experience and turned the whole thing into something useful. I presented this at the last ETH security talk…
I’m going to use the holiday period the finish nedi 1.0.9 and spend time with the family (of course). I wish the best to all of you and want to thank the community for the continued support and trust!
I proudly present nedi-321 – the final release candidate for the nedi-1.0.9 version. Many changes and improvements made it in, so the final testing needs to be thorough!
Have a close look at the discovery (start without -v). Check for warnings on failed SNMP access (uppercase letters followed by a lowercase one). You can finetune this, by adding a retry value after timeout in nedi.conf. The discovery itself should come across a lot cleaner than before:

If you want to see more debug information add “x” to notify in nedi.conf. Read here, what it does…
Last but not least, you’ll find many changes in the GUI! Just look through the README and keep exploring! A highlight besides piecharts in reports and more charts in Monitoring-Timeline, definitely is the new D3js visualization in Topology-Map! Just start with changing the format from “png” to “json”. Use flat-mode, if you don’t have compatible SNMP location strings. Then play with Node-Type…
In the month of December you’ll be redirected to Other-Invoice instead of User-Profile. If I can raise enough funds this way, I promise to take NeDi to the next level! Bookmarked links won’t be affected, though.
