No problem. Please do remember do Cc: the nav-users list when

I will assume this means you are using a stable version of Debian
GNU/Linux as your OS.

Is this a virtual machine? 10GB sounds awfully small compared to most
modern physical drives, even looking two years back - I would not run
NAV in production on such a small drive. Just the OS itself would take
up a large chunk of those 10GB, so I would strongly suggest that you
increase the drive size.

With only 10GB to go on, it could be anything. But I would typically
guess log files or the PostgreSQL database. Use the `du` command to
figure out where in the directory structure the disk space is being

Hard Disk Full

Hi

As an inexperienced NAV user - I need some assistance.

Our instance of NAV has filled the hard disk and I wondered if there was a way
to delete some records from it.

I would also like to know if there was a way of limiting how much information
was stored.

Thanks

Announcement: NAV 4.2.5 released

The fifth maintenance release of the NAV 4.2 series is now available.

This replaces the 4.2.4 release, which broke the parallel pinger, and
possibly other event-posting components. Again, to those who already
upgraded to 4.2.4, we apologize for the inconvenience. More details at
the bug report here:

  https://bugs.launchpad.net/nav/+bug/1434520

The source code is available for download at Launchpad [1]. A new
package for Debian Wheezy has been published in our APT repository [2],
as usual.

activate more counters

Hi all

I'm using NAV in an Italian Hospital, where all networking switches are from
Enterasys (now Extreme Networks).

Regarding the following interface counters:

ifInMulticastPkts
ifInBroadcastPkts
ifOutMulticastPkts
ifOutBroadcastPkts

is it possible to add the graphs of the above counters on switch port
details  ? At the moment I have traffic, unicast, errors and discarded.

Thanks

Re: NAV and VLAN with Virtualized firewall

Hi.
The Sophos UTM9 supports VLAN tagging, but we are not using it.
We need to create new VLAN interfaces and reconfigure the whole UTM9 to get that active.
Right now we only use separate network interfaces for different LAN segments.

About the bug reporting for the VLAN number of a prefix through the interface description conventions you
can create one.
See that I need to have some Ubuntu account for the bug reporting...

Today the whole VLAN entry being deleted and then recreated with a new ID.

Best regards 
Mattias

No. The GW category is for a pure layer 3 router. GSW is for a routing

Ken & John-Magne,

how are those debug statements working out, is there enough information
to get to the bottom if this issue now?

Integration with GIS

Before I start doing such, I'm wondering if anyone has done any 
integration between NAV and a PostGIS based GIS system (mostly using 
QGIS for "frontend"), as I would rather add to existing work rather than 
repeating it...I thinking of just creating views in postgres referencing 
NAV data for the GIS to use to retrieve device inventory, status, and 
statistics in spatial queries. If it becomes successful and useful, I 
will do a writeup.

Setting up NAV from scratch/non-OVA (Graphite-issues)

Hi,

Decided to install NAV from 'scratch' (i.e. not use the OVA-package). Got NAV running fine, but had some
hiccups getting Graphite working as it should. Found no documentation on this what-so-ever (neither on
the NAV-pages, or the Graphite-pages), so had to try-and-fail some. Thought I'd share.

 - Debian Wheezy (not OVA)
 - NAV via apt (from https://nav.uninett.no/debian)
      root <at> tardis:~# dpkg -s nav|grep Vers

2) Copied content of '/usr/share/graphite-web/apache2-graphite.conf' into own VHost;

Is there a way to change the default 10 rows in the lists?

It should be useful if I can change the default 10 rows in the

"Show xx entries"

in the lists.

I searched through the configuration file and in the .js but I can't change
this.

I wish to put 50 rows or at least "all".

Thank you
