Distributed Discovery Servers / One MySql instance ?
« on: June 24, 2010, 06:51:45 PM »
First off, thanks for the excellent software, nedi has saved me considerable time and headache..

I was wondering if nedi can be distributed, meaning can I have servers running nedi.pl logging to the same backend mysql server?

Essentially what I'd like to do is have discovery probes near the networks they are discovering, and log to the same mysql server

Would I just modify nedi.conf to log to the same msql box?

What I'm hoping to do is speed up discovery time over networks of great geographic distance.

I think this has been discussed before, but it is not currently implemented.

Unfortunately, Remo is just one person donating his spare time to this project.

It's going there! Not quite on the hierarchical level yet, though. In a first step the nodes are locked during caculation, wich means you can have several geographically separate discoveries running now. That said, the unlocking is not very good in 1.0.5, so you'd have to do this manually in the Services GUI, if it failed before...
