SNIPS 1.1 / 1.2 Beta 2

SNIPS is a system and network monitoring software that runs on Unix systems and can monitor network and system devices.
SNIPS (System & Network Integrated Polling Software) is a system and network monitoring software that runs on Unix systems and can monitor network and system devices. SNIPS application is capable of monitoring DNS, NTP, TCP or web ports, host performance, syslogs, radius servers, BGP peers, etc. New monitors can be added easily (via a C or Perl API).

False alarms are avoided by escalating events through severity levels- hence if a site is unreachable, the site will be tested multiple times before finally indicating that it is 'critical'. All events are logged, and the operator has the capability to decide which level to view the events at.

Available monitors are:

ICMP ping
RPC portmapper
OSI ping
Ethernet load
TCP ports
Nameserver
Radius server
Syslog messages
Mailq NTP
UPS (APC) battery
Unix host performance
BGP peers
SNMP variables
Data throughput

What's New in 1.1 Stable Release:

Minor release, primarily bug fixes.

snipslogd-conf
snipslogd-conf extension should have been -confg
perl-module
Had to define LD also while generating Makefile. Solaris machines can pick up cc instead of command line gcc.
snipslogd
Converts host byte order to network for logging between hosts with different endian.
Bug fix where process was getting killed in debug mode.
snipsweb
Misc bugs in genweb.cgi snipsweb.cgi
crontab listed snipsweb.cgi in bin/ dir instead of web/cgi dir
was not handling cookies correctly (kylev@yaga.com)
genweb.cgi was not parsing CGI parameters properly
snipsperl.conf
Should use qq() instead of q(). Was causing all perl scripts to give errors.
etherload
Was not setting name of config file correctly.
ntpmon
Was returning -1 in stratum on error.
Bug fixed where bzero() was being called after get_inet_address().
perl-module
unpack_event() was returning bad values, because tstr was not declared static in event2strarray()
radiusmon
Added portType option (reported by fosters@uk.psi.com)
snmpmon-collector
Checks to see if variables were initialized to prevent warning messages.
cmu-snmp/mib-v2.txt
Had to comment out the HP private mib since it was messing up the parsing of the 'mib-2.system' tree.
notifier.pl
Numerous bug fixes (bgoodwin@usdatacenters.com)
snmpmon-collector
Error in trimming the variable names.
crontab.snips
Listed log-maint.pl instead of logmaint.pl
