    Finally the computer works! Programming on 24" will be fun...

    I've been looking at adding a webcam based barcode scanner applet to the stock management. While it would be really neat I didn't find one that is actually able to decode serial numbers...

    I'll attack the more serious topics now:
    • 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 imrpoved discovery code.
    • Support for (former Colubris) HP-MSM Wlan controllers and 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.

    Public Beta will be coming out soooooOOooon!!!

As mentioned in the forum, I finally got my new computer at home working...

I should be able to continue development at home, but spare time is a rare good right now. I need to get my Master ASE Certification asap....now you can figure out where I ended up working  ;)

As promised I've started massaging the code towards threaded discovery. I'm nowhere near completion, but DB updates are done on a device basis. A nice side effect is, that modules and IFs are not lost anymore, if a device is unreachable for some reason and delete requests (from device-status) are carried out immediately. The only things left are nodes and links, which need to be calculated after the discovery. I'll either have to flatten their hashes for easier sharing or store them alternatively in order to process the data...

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...

If you're looking for context help, click on the "life-saver" icon next to the menu. Marco Rauchenstein wrote an excellent German translation...(which is far more detailed, than my english one).

Installation and configuration is covered in the Docs of www.nedi.ch (so I thought)...

If you're after the snapshot join us on IRC, so we can discuss issues etc. right away...

Sounds great! Thanks for your research. As soon as 1.0 is out of the way this (amongst other things) is something to be looked at.

Are you a programmer? Wow, that's quite impressive...

I wonder though, if the whole discovery should be rewritten for thread support. I'm sure there's more efficient ways to process the collected information when the focus is on multi-threading right from the start (Like storing data for each device in the db right away, to avoid the need of sharing complex hashes etc).

Thanks a lot for your work! I'll definitely look at this, but I guess it'll be for 2.0 and hopefully with a bunch of developers like you  8)

From what I understand (so far), you can use shared threads. If this doesn't work, the whole things needs to be completely rewritten  :o

Threaded discovery has been on the plate for a while. I'll look into this, but it would be good, to know someone who's got experience with threaded perl programming...? Anyone?

In the meantime you can play with -A and different seedfiles. Just make sure, the discovery without -A finishes first...
