In the last week we did more build and infrastructure work, documentation updates, flow and measurements bugs, and the Minion-based remote poller.

Github Project Updates

Internals, APIs, and Documentation

  • Ron Roskens worked on resurrecting his Dev Jam work to build on a JDK newer than 1.8.
  • I did more work on infrastructure updates for CI and repo serving.
  • Bonnie did more work on thresholding metadata and TCP listener documentation.
  • Chandra worked on making the Minion-based remote poller handle poller package association.
  • Ronny fixed a bunch of Asciidoc documentation warnings.
  • Sean worked on a bug where "last seen" wasn't updating with flow raw records disabled.
  • Justin Wood submitted a fix for interfaceSnmpByIfIndex when an interface has no associated physaddr.
  • Marcel worked on a fix for handling the APPLICATION TAG field from Netflow 9.
  • Ronny worked on updating us to the latest 4.x JNA.

Web, ReST, UI, and Helm

Calendar of Events

July Releases - July 7th, 2020

The next OpenNMS release day is July 7th, 2020. Currently we expect releases from all supported Meridians as well as Horizon 26, due to backported updates for the RRD Newts converter and an update to the default Java version used in Docker images.

Until Next Week…

If there’s anything you’d like me to talk about in a future OOH, or you just have a comment or criticism you’d like to share, don’t hesitate to say hi.

- Ben
