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