[snips-users] snips wish list
All, I am trying scale SNIPS to my environment (2200 etherswitches, 25 ATM switches, 30 aggregating router/switch nodes), plus several interconnect routers for peering at the NorthernLights GigaPOP. I see SNIPS as being able to play in that arena, and would like to supplement our current HP OpenView management platform. The wish list below might be considered a weak area for HP OpenView. I would like to generate some discussion of the areas below. I offer to provide my programming assistance where I can to see my wish list implemented.

This may require the use of notifier to 'set' critical alarms, and possibly something else to 'unset' the alarm. o tigher integration with 'syslog' to handle or decode alarms, as well as de-escalate alarm events from critical..warning to info. o latency and/or thruput matrix + generate a list of hosts to monitor ala OSU flow tools - aka top ten talkers and/or destinations. + Assumes distributed monitors o Ability to generate and incorporate (signal HUP) configurations from cpu servers. o Ability to test configurations (ala syslogmon) outside of monitor to validate the configurations, showing with log input what the output and actions would be. o Reporting should include summary uptime of particular service (instead of or including downtime). o expanded output of reports, and logs via HTML.
