This Week in OpenNMS, Friday February 13th

Welcome to This Week in OpenNMS for Friday the 13th. It’s yet again time to take a look at what’s been going on in the world of OpenNMS development.

Project Updates

  • Stable: Current Release is 1.6.2

    1.6.2 is still the current release, and while there are a few fixes pending since it’s release, there are no immediate plans for a 1.6.3 yet.

  • Unstable: Current Release is 1.7.0

    Trunk has been moving fast still, and I hope we’ll get a 1.7.1 release out soon-ish, but we’re still trying to get provisiond up to a demoable state first. In the meantime, feel free to try the nightly snapshots (if it’s not on a production system, of course).

  • Trunk: Javamail Updates

    Dave’s been working on refactoring our javamail support into it’s own module, to make it easier to reuse in different portions of OpenNMS.

  • Trunk: RANCID Integration

    Guglielmo continued work on the RANCID integration; the API has stopped changing much and most of the work has been going on in the UI at this point.

  • Trunk: Provisiond

    Matt has most of the provisiond code working, some simple scanning is possible now, there are just a few loose ends to tie up before there’s a working prototype.

  • Trunk: Node Page Updates

    Donald’s spiffy new ajaxy node page is active, and lets you page through data related to the node directly in the node page.

  • 1.6 Testing: Minor Updates

    Jeff, Bill, and a few others have done some minor updates to 1.6-testing (which of course are forward-ported to trunk as well) including IE rendering issues, additional MIBs, read-only KSC report support, and more.

  • Trunk: Map Updates

    Antonio has continued work on the new trunk map code, which includes support for all modern SVG browsers (Safari, Firefox, and IE with the Adobe SVG plugin).

  • Trunk: RESTful Support for Map Data

    Matt Raykowski submitted RESTful API support for map and related data (map elements, linkd data, etc.) which will be useful for future map work.

  • Trunk: XMP/Cartographer Support

    Jeff merged Bobby Krupczak’s Cartographer agent support for OpenNMS to trunk.

    Cartographer “implements a novel approach to managing distributed systems by automatically discovering and tracking the relationships between its component systems and applications. Cartographer does so via specially designed agents — residing on clients, servers and (potentially) network devices — that detect, identify, and track the inter and intra-system dependencies or relationships. Dependencies include network level services like DNS, DHCP, and SMTP as well as higher-level application abstractions like filesystems, databases, directory services, telephony, and middleware.”

Upcoming Events

If you have anything to add to the events list, or you wish to be a Dev-Jam sponsor, please let me know.

If You Can’t Love the Source You’ve Opened, Open the Source You Love

That’s all for this week. I hope you all have a wonderful valentine’s day if you’re into that kind of thing. As always, feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions, comments, or if you wish to know my address so you can send me some mysterious white powder through postal mail.
