Are any targets actually checked (e.g. uptime or ping)?

Ok, but is anything actually up? :) Not sure, why else you'd get this message...

Finally I updated from 1.0.7 to 1.0.8, an imported the nodes table. Everything works fine and the db is running faster. During the installation I noticed these things, maybe they can be fixed in further versions:

1. nedi.conf changed in 1.0.8 but the version is commented with '# NeDi 1.0.7 configuration file' - a bit confusing :-/
2. file structure: all files (binaries, scripts and data) are stored in /var per default. Especially rrd can get very big (30 gig in my set up). I recommend to put
  • binaries to /opt/nedi and
  • data to /var/nedi
on different partitions/volume groups. At the moment I solved the problem with links.

1. +1 :)

2. depends on your server partition structure. In mine there is only one partition (all are virtual machines, not created nor HW managed by me).
Anyway a bit skilled *nix server manager can add a new partition/volume using an approriate mount point, like using nedi folder under /var, so all NeDi files (except databases) will have a dedicated disk space.
My two cents... ;)

Note that nedi.pl -i will keep RRDs now (-I won't)

1.0.8-116 warns "DB, RRDs and configs files will be cleared" if you run it with -i... maybe for next version that message could be made a bit more clear? :)

What's the deal with top.rrd and system.rrd after 1.0.7->1.0.8 upgrade? I've updated now four NeDi environments and did the addstatus2ifrrd.pl magic to the interface rrd files. However system.rrd and top.rrd files stop updating so I've deleted them to get them recreated (no big deal). There's still few 1.0.7 sites that I need to update. Removal of old top.rrd and system.rrd files is necessary or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks.

Br,
Hannu

I think it was global discards. For the IF RRD there's addstatus2ifrrd.pl in contrib, but I dunno if it works in every case...
