This Week in OpenNMS: May 31st, 2016
2016-05-31 19:21:14 GMT
It's time for This Week in OpenNMS!
In the last week we worked on Minion, the database backend,
topology maps and BSM, and Bamboo.
Github Project Updates
Chandra has continued working on improving the minion code that communicates with OpenNMS. Jesse has been working on supporting location-aware SNMP requests that can transparently proxy to remote minion systems. Seth has been working on evaluating and updating the syslog branch including improving throughput of syslog messages from Minions.
- Database Access
Alejandro and I did some work on updating database code (JDBC drivers and C3P0 pooling). We have also introduced a new alternative pool library, HikariCP, which promises much better database performance.
- Topology Maps and Business Service Monitor
Markus, Dustin, and Jesse have also continued to work on Project Atlas, with the goal of improving navigation through support of topology layers, and support for moving node map functionality to the topology UI.
- Bamboo Updates
I’ve been spending more time on our smoke test infrastructure, porting Jesse’s Minion System Tests to be a more generic test framework for spawning tests to run against a dockerized OpenNMS install.
Upcoming Events and Appearances
The OpenNMS Group has moved the next training session in Pittsboro, NC to August 15th through 19th. For more details on OpenNMS training and signing up, see The OpenNMS.com training page: http://www.opennms.com/training
Dev-Jam 2016 is sneaking up on is, but there is still plenty of time to join us in Minnesota. For more information, see The Dev-Jam 2016 wiki page: https://www.opennms.org/wiki/Dev-Jam_2016
Mike Huot has written up a proposal letter you can use to help explain to management why attending Dev-Jam is a good idea. Feel free to copy this letter and join us in Minnesota this year: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VerZYe5LwMT_1j5ISAsNU9-ZGcwY_zdA_4DODNlBpYg/edit?usp=sharing
Until Next Week…
