Final RC is here

Development 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.
