It's time for OpenNMS On the Horizon!

In the last week we worked on netflow payload processing improvements, BMP support, time-series persistence, Helm documentation, Karaf shell commands, topology UI providers, and new ReST APIs.

Github Project Updates

Internals, APIs, and Documentation

  • Chandra continued his work on using protobuf rather than BSON for netflow payloads.
  • Christian, Dustin, and Jesse did more work on adding BMP support.
  • Patrick continued his work on a new time-series persistence API.
  • Bonnie documented forecast filters for Helm.
  • Chandra added a Karaf shell command for displaying the local SNMP engine ID.
  • Matt fixed a logging race condition in Telemetryd.

Web, ReST, and UI

  • Markus updated the VMware and Enlinkd topology providers to use OIA-enriched vertex metadata.
  • I added /api/v2/ipinterfaces and /api/v2/snmpinterfaces endpoints to the ReST API.
