In the last week we kept working on CI improvements, fixed some Kafka bugs, fixed time-series and netflow issues, the new Minion-based remote poller infrastructure, OIA integration updates, and more!

Github Project Updates

Internals, APIs, and Documentation

  • Chandra fixed an issue with the alarm history elasticsearch feature when indexPrefix is set.
  • Dustin did more work on modernizing the remote poller infrastructure.
  • Pierre added new confd templates for Minion to make SSH, RMI registry, and RMI server configurable.

  • Chandra continued his work on improving thread-handling on the Minion.
  • Chandra fixed an issue with missing parameters when forwarding events from the Kafka producer.
  • Jesse fixed a regression in throughput processing of Netflow ingress packets in Horizon 26.
  • Jesse fixed an issue with exceptions when persisting fails in the new time-series integration layer.
