Node Tracker: What is it?
« on: November 20, 2012, 03:57:07 PM »
Hello there,

I successfully installed Nedi 1.0.7+patch, scanned a part of our network an discovered about 60 devices with a couple of nodes. NeDi isn't too new to me but I'll have some questions. At the moment I want to know what is the Node Tracker. The the momentary output after a few days with hourly scans (nedi.pl -porN) is zero.

Your's Daniel

Can anyone tell me what the Node Tracker is, please? There's also a table nodetrack, but it's still empty. How can I get it filled?

Code: [Select]
mysql> describe nodetrack;
+--------+------------------+------+-----+---------+-------+
| Field  | Type             | Null | Key | Default | Extra |
+--------+------------------+------+-----+---------+-------+
| device | varchar(64)      | YES  | MUL | NULL    |       |
| ifname | varchar(32)      | YES  | MUL | NULL    |       |
| value  | varchar(64)      | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| source | char(8)          | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| user   | varchar(32)      | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| time   | int(10) unsigned | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
+--------+------------------+------+-----+---------+-------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> select count(*) from nodetrack;
+----------+
| count(*) |
+----------+
|        0 |
+----------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Oh, thank you. I could follow your instructions and configure the tracker. But unfortunatelly it's not the feature we are looking for. What we need: A kind of a history of a mac address on which interfaces it appeared so that we can follow the node. It shouldn't be difficult to implement:

on each run:
- compare the actual interface a node is connected with with the latest entry of a history table
- if it's the same device/interface --> do nothing, otherwise create a new entry in the history table

For now i will implement this by myself. But coud this be a feature for coming versions?

Not in a coming version, but actually available in Nodes-Status for example :) Alternatively you can search for a MAC (or part of it) in Other-Noodle or use Nomads from Node-Reports to show the top moving nodes (# if changes * # ip changes)
