Nope still with the old one, but except from some DB errors (see below) now an then, it seems to be ok. I just wonder what to do with an ~80Mb ISO, if I'm ever to create a new one, cauz that will get me into trouble...


There has been a problem with the database!
This is a notice email to let you know that SMF could not connect to the database, contact your host if this continues.

They're not getting used enough so I don't realize when something's off. Hope it's better now and Vielen Dank!

Discovery / Re: Backing up Cisco 1900 that lack IOS CLI
« on: February 16, 2009, 07:35:39 PM »
While 1.0 should still support them, I just dropped support for coming versions. NeDi tries to enter CLI from Menu. Use logging (search forum on howto) in order to find out where it gets stuck...

Try to attach the archive here, if it's small (otherwhise email rickli at nedi punkt ch). I'll look at it and either put it in the contribution folder or even integrate it...

Had some time today to start rewriting the discovery protocol functions. While this may not be an improvement to every possible network, it will definitely be a big step forward! I can't implement FDP as long as I don't have any foundry devices or test non Cisco LLD-MED phones. If you have such hardware lying around email or PM me, if you want me to put them to good use  8)

  • LLDP and CDP work nicely again and Phones should be discovered appropriately now!
  • Webdev has gone from nedi.conf as it decides to probe supported devices itself, if LWP is available.

Discovery / Re: Performance collector for NEDI
« on: February 14, 2009, 01:10:45 PM »
The reason why sysobj is not in there (as explained to oxo before), is that the intention is to keep NeDi as simple as possible (for a network discovery tool), thus hiding the gory details. Over time NeDi has gone beyond my imagination and I see it'll benefit, of leaving such things in there...next release will have a SysObjID column  8)

Note: This will allow for simpler access to editing via Defgen (just copy the .def you wish to edit to html/log and allow write access for the websrever). Now that the sysobj link is available for recognized devices as well, you simply click on it in Devices-List...

Yes, unfortunately I haven't had the time to document it properly. Search the forum and you'll find my answers explaining how to turn on CLI logs. Time is still what I don't have these days, but I promise to write a CLI debugging section after I receive a donation/amazon item with the keyword CLI on it. Deal, anyone?

Installation / Re: libsnmp error
« on: February 14, 2009, 01:02:57 PM »
First of all anything before 1.0 sucks (I'm the only one who's allowed to say such things!). Then search the forum for "Nothing discovered, nothing written" and you'll see that your problem is not Nedi or its installation...

Have a look at how to configure NeDi (especially Netfilter) and make sure you use tabs.

GUI / Re: Some GUI features
« on: February 14, 2009, 12:58:45 PM »
Sure, just add them in this tread, if you want to share. The NeDi community is always open for such enhancements. The reason why I didn't do much in that aspect was that I'm usually on the CLI. I didn't want the GUI to have the "power" to edit nedi.conf due to the security issues. That said (hope I didn't get anybody worried now), the GUI has been proven stable and secure (using https). Penetration tests still welcome! If time permits, I'll have another go in turnig NeDi into an appliance, which would definitely require such additions...

moni.pl doesn't use any priviledged ports, where as syslog.pl listens on 514, thus needs root permission...

Wow  8) Great job! Hope everyone is aware, that I'm quite busy these days. But I'll spend more time to follow up on all your great work as soon as I have some air...I need another Saturday a week!

Database / Re: mysql issue?
« on: February 10, 2009, 07:58:34 PM »
 ??? Can you print some lines of snmpwalk?

BTW ./nedi.pl -dt <ip> will be quicker for debugging...

Discovery / Re: Work the code Monkeys: Concurrent Discovery
« on: February 08, 2009, 09:08:45 PM »
Wow, cool. When NeDi's ready for multiple discovery threads it would make a great feature to choose between number of threads and blocking or non-blocking...

Installation / Re: system.rrd
« on: February 08, 2009, 09:00:48 PM »
rrdpath is the path to the actual rrd data. The default should work, unless you put nedi somewhere else...

Some devices use very high IF indexes (Chinese ones for example), so increasing the ifidx integer to bigint could help (change line 85 in inc/libdb-msq.pl so after the ifidx is a BIGINT instead of SMALLINT). This will be fixed in the next release...

Discovery / Re: Concurrent Discovery
« on: February 06, 2009, 07:12:28 PM »
Just keep in mind this creates higher traffic peaks and stresses the device much more than a single walk at the time. I fear this could crash certain not-so-well engineered devices once in a while. Still amazing how much faster it gets! Of course it would be a great alternative to my slo-mo approach  8)
