even the current v9 looks like the v6 i started on its got web interface with views, and a simple netflow but man, the configurability, the tiered automated responses, the pure snmp of it all, I missed it if we end up re upping our contract on it we wil get the new bells and whistles in the january release, im not expecting alot but its a simple download, install and its running, that simple we can give customer service tools with a clean (ish) interface to do any snmp task from a simple menu, it auto layed out my ospf network clean, a few interface edits later and it visualizes my ospf path, if i can figure out syntax in custom tables I can automate that task too I did however run into a mib compile issue, the machine im running the demo on I had an earlier test system where i was dicking with mibs, when i compiled i lost all of them, so i had to uninstall it, the rrd folders are so deep that windows took forever to remove the millions of subfolders i did alot of customization back then but didnt know how to document or what I actually was doing, now this beast will be like a magic chicken but it msrp 12.5k i believe, so its a tough one to get into upfront, however theyre very liberal about renewing expired support contracts
one really cool thing thats on the board for this is one of our nationwide contract services customers, we drop a poller into their domain, give them access to just their user folder and they have what equates to a full instance on their network On Thu, Dec 1, 2016 at 9:43 PM, Ken Hohhof <af...@kwisp.com> wrote: > I remember using that 20 years ago.
