Discovery / Re: Nedi 1.6 and Cisco AccessPoint 1800 series and 2800 series
« on: February 15, 2018, 09:10:26 PM »
What is the exact CDP description of the AP? NeDi recognizes AIR-AP, AIR-CAP or AIR-LAP. If this string is not showing up it won't be identified as AP. You can still add a matching string (or regexp) to nosnmpdev in nedi.conf to get the links and avoid NeDi trying SNMP on it...

GUI / Re: Assets Management
« on: February 13, 2018, 02:19:12 PM »
I've introduced an option to manage assets some years ago: -Y. Use it like -Yam to add all assets (including phones and modules with SN). You need to "deactivate" assets manually, since NeDi doesn't know what happened to unreachable assets.

The only exception: Starting with NeDi 1.6 there's a option in nedi.conf to automatically set devices to replaced, if the SN of a name has been changed...

Definition Files / Re: Cisco Catalyst 3650 stack def

Tx, I'll add as alt.def, because I see some discrepancies with the existing one...

Discovery / Re: No Config-Backup after Change
« on: February 13, 2018, 02:06:28 PM »
You can simply skip system info to force a backup: -Ss (The line you posted even shows what's happening at the beginning with $skip)

The correct change detection becomes a problem when the uptime overflows after 1.5 years. It should be fixed in the current NeDi version...

Discovery / Re: two Cisco ASAs with same name
« on: February 13, 2018, 02:04:23 PM »
Yes, for clusters like this you can use mapna in nedi.conf:

mapna ip1 ciscoasa1
mapna ip2 ciscoasa2

Installation / Re: Upgrade from 1.5 to 1.6
« on: January 30, 2018, 06:55:44 PM »
NeDi won't retry CLI access after if it didn't work the first time. Reset it in Devices-Status. To debug you can use -v -dc and look at the resulting input- and output.log files...

Installation / Re: Running moni.pl as a systemd service
« on: January 30, 2018, 06:54:06 PM »
Interesting, tx. I've been using startup scripts for Debian, CentOS etc. Is there an advantage of using systemd?

News / Re: Anyone using descfilter?
« on: January 30, 2018, 06:47:05 PM »
Tx for the feedback. This option only applies to the description read via SNMP and won't affect CDP, LLDP or nosnmpdev at all.

It only made sense in rare cases, that's why I'd like to replace it. It seems nobody is using it anyway :-)

News / Re: Optical Monitoring

Tx for the feedback. I'll add a skip option and try to find a way to assign them to the appropriate interface...

News / Optical Monitoring
« on: January 22, 2018, 05:44:16 PM »
A question for you experts. Would you agree to monitor send and receive signal strength would be the most important?
Also, would it suffice to test against a minimum threshold or do we need to test against a maximum threshold as well?

I'm looking at getting this feature into 1.8, but I don't want to snmpwalk more OIDs than absolutely necessary...

Another open issue, do I assign the optics to the interfaces or the modules? Depending on equipment vendor one is easier than the other. However, I lean towards modules because the DB structure won't need changing and would be more efficient (rather than adding unused fields on thousands of copper ports).

Discovery / Re: Multiple CDP neighbors on a single port
« on: January 11, 2018, 10:42:27 PM »
You need to set it on that particular port in Devices-Interfaces not in nedi.conf...

Discovery / Re: netfilter over multiple lines
« on: January 11, 2018, 10:41:06 PM »
Have a look at the documentation about seedlists, which allow defining ranges. Preceeding IPs with a ! will exclude them...

Discovery / Re: Problems with arpwatch in NeDi 1.6: solved?
« on: December 05, 2017, 04:04:17 PM »
Nope, looks like I missed that one :) I got it right in 1.7 though...

Tx for this!

GUI / Re: Option to merge history of device
« on: December 05, 2017, 09:33:03 AM »
I'd go with the new device and simply move the RRD files over to the new folder...

GUI / Re: Problems after update to 1.6
« on: November 29, 2017, 12:12:45 PM »
They're not missing, but renamed :)

As I'm continuously working on improving translations, I'm aligning the PHP modules to make more sense across the languages.

You should find the current module names in nedi.conf with the distribution (e.g. User-Management and System-Database).

I'll add changes in nedi.conf in the Readme.txt to make it easier for everybody...
