This Week in OpenNMS: Dear Future Readers…
by Benjamin Reed: April 13, 2010
- Stable: Current Release is 1.6.5
1.6.5 is the current stable release, tagged May 16th. It fixes a number of bugs, and adds a few features. For a full list, see the bugzilla 1.6.5 milestone. This is a non-critical but recommended upgrade for anyone on OpenNMS versions older than 1.6.5.
- Unstable: Current Release is 1.7.6
1.7.6 is the current unstable release, tagged August 3rd. Since 1.7.5, there have been a ton of bugfixes, as well as updates to the RESTful interfaces, inventory report updates, syslogd updates, collection updates, new OpenManage and Cisco IP-SLA monitors, thresholding updates, provisiond updates, map updates, and probably more stuff I’m missing. A 1.7.x overview is available in the release notes on the site.
- Unstable: SMS Pinger/Request-Response API
Matt, Donald, Jeff, and I worked more on the SMS pinger APIs. The configuration for SMS sequences is finished, and work has begun on scheduling query/responses, as well as looking into packaging/build issues for final inclusion into a release. The goal is to have a working demo of sequences this week.
- Unstable: Service Registry
Matt worked on creating an API for a “service registry” — this is an under-the-covers, architectural API that makes it easier to track plugins of various type, register them with OpenNMS, and share and sync them between the OpenNMS, Spring, and OSGi sides.
- Unstable: Miscellaneous Updates
A few other interesting updates have happened in trunk, including fixes for TL1, the XMP collector, notifications, and error messages in the web UI.
- Unstable: Statsd Updates
Dave did some work on the statsd codebase, fixing it up so that it starts up and shuts down cleanly, and can reload configuration without a restart.

Until Next Week…
As always, if there’s anything you’d like me to talk about in a future TWiO, or you just have a comment, criticism, or XKCD fanfic you’d like to share, don’t hesitiate to say hi.
