[snips-users] Congrats 1.2beta2 team
I have upgraded to snips 1.2beta2 |
Congratulations to the team that worked on this - the install pieces work flawlessly, and the new code does have several things fixed.
Things I noticed right away: - hostmon picking up the variables seems much more reliable. with 1.1 sometimes it just wouldn't show them for no apparent reason - then you'd shut it all down or reboot the machine and some ones that were being ignored would appear (or some ones you had would stop being logged)
- rrd graph titles (printed in the .gif) no longer start with %20
- when you click on an alarm button or Device Name link, then on the "Graph" button, snipsweb.cgi / rrdgraph.cgi now seems to reliably display the graph . I don't know what's different because as far as I know they didn't get changed :-)
- hostmon variables no longer get mixed up between 3 and 4-parameter variables, e.g. "_boot+MemFree"
Here are my upgrade notes; maybe they'll be helpful to someone else doing the upgrade.
My snips is in /usr/local/snips. To do the upgrade, I
As user snips: - unpacked the tar in my /usr/local/src - Configured - made - killed the running snips processes
Then as root: - moved /usr/local/snips to /usr/local/snips.old - made a new /usr/local/snips and chowned snips - su'd to snips and ran the install
Then as snips: - 'make install'
Then as root - 'make root'
Then as snips again: - moved the etc and rrddata directory from the old version to the new one - re-did my local patches - cranked it all up.
