OpenNMS On the Horizon – Events, Meta-Data, Time Series, SNMP, Helm, Documentation, Perspective Monitoring
In the last week we fixed a bunch of bugs relating to events, meta-data, time series, SNMP, and Helm, updated documentation, and continued to make small perspective monitoring tweaks in preparation for Horizon 27.
Github Project Updates
Internals, APIs, and Documentation
Ronny added a log category for the perspective poller

Chandra made some more fixes for handling broken agents that return the wrong number of OIDs
Patrick created some documentation for writing time series plugins
Christian enhanced nodeDeleted events to contain additional parameters
Chandra fixed the SNMP poller to handle location when looking up config
Patrick fixed some queries that Helm uses to determine whether flow data is available
Bonnie reworked the documentation on setting up Minion
Bonnie worked on providing documentation updates to handle RHEL7-specific requirements
I build ARM64 JICMP/JICMP6/JRRD/JRRD2 binaries for RHEL7, RHEL8, and Debian/Ubuntu
Web, ReST, UI, and Helm
Ronny updated the application page to direct link to nodes, interfaces, services, and IPs
Jeff worked on a fix to show resource labels in Grafana/Helm variables
Thanks to the following contributors for committing changes since last OOH:
Note that this is just based on current plans; dates, features, and releases can change or slip depending on how development goes.
The next OpenNMS release day is October 6th, 2020.
The current plan is to release Horizon 26.2.2 as well as Meridian 2019 and 2020.
Next Horizon: 27 (Q4 2020)
The next major Horizon release will be Horizon 27.
It's going to contain a bunch of great stuff:
improvements to node caching for flow processing
VMware meta-data has been moved from assets to the new node meta-data
Minion improvements, including configuration enhancements and an overhaul to RPC thread-handling
a new handy global search bar in the web UI
improved SNMPv3 auth configuration
a major rework of remote poller functionality, now integrated with the Minion (we're calling it Application Perspective Monitoring)
Next Meridian: 2020 (Q4 2020)
Meridian 2020 will be based on Horizon 26.1, and should have roughly the same featureset as Horizon 26.1.3 plus a few bugfixes we've made since then.
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.
