NeDi for monitoring of Linux based routers
« on: June 03, 2010, 10:40:07 PM »
I am looking for a tool to collect and monitor network structure based on small linux routers. I tried already some other tools like Zabbix and Nagios, but NeDi suits me best... except it seems to be pretty focused on proprietary routers. I run SNMP on all those linux routers and NeDi is already doing a good job to find all interfaces etc. just seeding all router IPs as there is no discovery protocol. But there is a lot missing. E.g. all devices are identified per file
1.3.6.1.4.1.8072.3.2.10.def:Type   IOLAN
which is probably some fallback.

So here I am to ask - is it possible to create a def file for a (debian) linux based routers?

Also I did not found anywhere how can I interpret the info nedi.pl is printing while running
Device            Status             Todo/Done-Time
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10.101.5.1   BcFreeBr      Su i35   j10   QwQaQp   a23          48/1-5s

What does this "Su i35 j10 QwQaQp a23" means?

Ok, I found what those letters in output stand for by using debug mode.

One note: IMHO nedi.pl should clear at start the number of threads in system table. If you interrupt the nedi script somewhere when it sets "threads+1" it will remain in the table forever and nedi will not update a top.rrd database.
