Rename max_pull_config parameter in
etc/noc-activator.conf to max_scripts
Periodic task handling moved from SAE to a new noc-schedule daemon, improving overall SAE stability. Custom pyRules can be launched as common periodic tasks, allowing deep NOC customization.
contrib/ directory contains updated versions of following packages:
- Django 1.3
- Sphinx 1.0.7
noc-notifier supports new "sendmail" method, allowing to spool new messages directly to local mail-agent queue. This method is compatible with nullmailer. It also can be used to spool messages to arbitrary scripts.
Large amont of python modules are reformatted according to PEP8 proposal.
Clean up forgotten map-reduce tasks¶
main.cleanup periodic task also removes hanging Map/Reduce tasks data.
Prefix Tables are named lists of IPv4/IPv6 prefixes, which can be used for configuration purposes in many places. 0.6.4 release allows to use Prefix Tables in Managed Objects Selectors
Service Activation subsystem can be split into several independenting shards, each having dedicated activators and SAE daemons. Sharding opens new ways for horizontal scaling of large installations. In addition, shard can be put offline, disabling only part of SA subsystem for maintainance.
WRR load balancing¶
Activator reports its capabilities (including script session limits) to SAE on connect. SAE uses weighted round-robin (WRR) balancing scheme to proportionally distribute the load between activators in the pool.
Command Snippets are canned parametrized templates for frequenly-used operations, which can be run multiple times on large amount of equipment.
Script output templating¶
Scripts launched from Managed Object's script form now utilize neat HTML templates with additional hot actions links.
Treat Managed Object's _encoding attribute as input encoding specification
Per-object concurrent scripts limit¶
Managed Object's _max_scripts attribute is used as per-object concurrent scripts limit
noc-activator's max_pull_config parameter is renamed to less obsfucated max_scripts
ManagementObject.remote_path can be up to 256 characters
- Profile.shutdown_session() - profiles can use scriptable session shutdowns, similar to start_session()
- ManagedObject.scripts - all scripts can be accessed directly via .scripts property
Better compatibility for:
- D-Link DGS-3120 Series
- Cisco Catalyst 2950
get_version optional attributes¶
get_version can return additional named attributes
Non-blocking HTTP client¶
Non-blocking http client introduced for accurate timeout handling
ssh: keyboard-interactive method¶
Built-in ssh daemon can authenticate using keyboard-interactive method
f5.BIGIP uses bash¶
f5 devices must be configured to use advanced shell (bash) for noc user.
Event filters are refreshed on object's address changed¶
Event filters are reloaded immediately when managed object's addresses are changed, reducing amount of Invalid event filter events
- Prevent recursive selectors creation
- Unicode logging issues
- Error handling in HTTP
- Better handling of Telnet/SSH connection timeout
"Get now" retrieves config immediately¶
"Get now" admin action immediately refetches selected configs instead of rescheduling next pull
Filter by "Administrative domain"¶
"Administrative domain" filter is added to config list pane
Flexible zone changes notifications¶
Multi-level DNS Zone changes notifications are introduced. Notification Group used to report zone changes calculated in following order: First, try to use DNS Zone's group, if set. For empty DNS Zone's group try to use one from DNS Zone profile. Finally, if no group is set for profile, use system's notification group
.ip6.arpa zones treated as IPv6 reverse¶
.ip6.arpa zones are treated as usual IPv6 reverse zones
