This Week in OpenNMS: April 18th, 2016

In the last week we worked on BSM, topology maps, events and data collection, TSRM ticketing, discovery, metrics persisting, the OSGi plugin manager, Compass, and bug fixing.

Github Project Updates

  • Business Service Monitor and Topology Maps

    This week was mostly a continuation of the wrapup of BSM for Horizon 18 – mostly bug fixes and UI work in topology maps. Antonio has also been working on cleaning up the Enhanced Linkd topology provider for the topology maps to make it conform to the major refactor he did in Enlinkd over the last few months.

  • Events and Data Collection

    Marcel and Ronny added new events and/or graphs for SMSEagle and APC devices.

  • TSRM Ticketing Plugin

    Chandra did more work on the ticketing plugin for IBM’s TSRM.

  • Discovery

    Seth did more work on his discovery refactor using Camel. It now supports everything that the old discovery daemon as well as adding support for triggering discovery manually with a customizable rate.

  • Metrics Persisting

    Alejandro has been doing a number of fixes to metric persisting as well as providing more data for troubleshooting persistence issues.

  • OSGi Plugin Manager

    Craig fixed the build integration issues in the OSGi plugin manager and improved the documentation. This should be merged for inclusion in Horizon 18 soon.

  • Compass

    Compass 2.1.0 betas are progressing with a number of fixes and small improvements. There is still a nagging crash issue that I am working to resolve before final release. If you’d like to help beta test, see the Compass web site.

  • Bug Fixes

A lot of other minor bug fixes have been going in in preparation for OpenNMS Horizon 18.

OpenNMS Horizon 18 Imminent

The BSM branch has been merged and we have a few more pull requests pending before we can branch for release. If you have a test setup, please give the OpenNMS 18 snapshots a try and let us know if you run into any issues; this is shaping up to be a really nice release. Just change your yum or apt configuration to use snapshot instead of stable and you’ll get the snapshot builds. When we branch for 18, snapshot will point to the release branch, rather than develop.

Upcoming Events and Appearances

The OpenNMS Foundation Europe is having its General Assembly meeting on April 22nd, 2016. For details on the agenda and contact information, see this post on the OpenNMS discuss mailing list.

The OpenNMS Group has scheduled our next training session in Pittsboro, NC for June 13th through 17th. For more details on OpenNMS training and signing up, see The OpenNMS.com training page.

Dev-Jam 2016 is sneaking up on is, but there is still plenty of time to join us in Minnesota. For more information, see The Dev-Jam 2016 wiki page. Mike Huot has written up a proposal letter you can use to help explain to management why attending Dev-Jam is a good idea. Feel free to copy this letter and join us in Minnesota this year!

Until Next Week…

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