News / NeDi 1.0.4
« on: April 11, 2009, 09:41:38 PM »
  • Instant removal of devices and related data upon deleting from Devices Status.
  • Updating IF and modules of a device immediately after its discovery (no more empty tables, if it's been missing). This is also an important step towards parallel discovery!
  • Enhanced Stock Management (no removal, but change of state upon discovery, editable items, non admins can edit stock! Enhanced to deal with big stocks and additional warranty field).
  • Fix Devsend.pl to be compliant with Net::Appliance::Session (probably need ank's help).
  • Patch Topology Routes as contributed and improve route discovery
  • Fixed ProCurve .defs to represent proper models and minor improvements for DefGen.
  • Detect module changes based on their SN
  • Traps and Syslog message can generate mails now. Enhanced trigger tests in moni.pl
  • Takes RFC2233 into account when more than 1 HC counter is missing
  • leaf- and webdevs replaced by nosnmpdev along with improved discovery code for IP phones etc.
  • Support for (former Colubris) HP-MSM Wlan controllers and APs with wireless client tracking.
  • Total PoE Delivery in Monitoring-Health and per Device totals in Report-Devices
  • New discovery options -a (add single dev) -A (use DB as seedlist), enhanced per user GUI settings
  • Top graphs (PoE, Messages Availability and more), improved Devices-Graph to pick intervall.
  • Track print supplies (toner). It's a start and I'll pursue if someone is sponsoring more development in this direction.
  • Custom RRD per device possible. E.g. # Clients on APs
  • Defgen reads existing .defs via softlink in html/log

FYI, I'm not too happy with my webhoster. The DB always had sporadic problems (outside the maintenance window), bandwidth is not that great and now I noticed it was completely unavailable on a couple of occasions. Email notification seized to work for the forum, hence registration and topic notifications won't be sent out anymore.  :-\

I've asked support, but I don't expect too much anymore  >:( I guess you get what you pay for, so I'm not complaining (too much). I just hope the community doesn't mind until I find a better solution. Thanks for your understanding....

News / NeDi's Future
« on: July 12, 2008, 05:30:22 PM »
It's been a few weeks, since I've released version 1.0. The feedback has been positive and no major problems have been reported so far. Until now, the main drive for NeDi's development has been my employer and our needs at hand. Donations from my Amazon wish lists have encouraged me to take care of user requests and make NeDi work as good as possible for everyone else...

I'll start working for a new employer in a couple of weeks and NeDi won't be an official part of my job anymore. I've set up a lab in my basement in order to continue development, but it's obvious that it will slow down without any major incentives. I will spend spare time to take NeDi to the next level, but for requests and support, you'll get much quicker responses, if you compensate my efforts. You can sponsor individual features by writing them yourself or make a donation we agree upon for implementing.

At this point I want to thank my boss (Urs Egger) who made this possible in the first place and all the users who contributed, donated and reported bugs, thus helped to make NeDi to what it is now. More than ever it will be carried by the community from now on, until maybe one day, I'll form a real business  around it...
