NetMRG enters maintenance mode

NetMRG has reached the point in it's lifetime that the original developers have little time to develop new features for it. It's time for us to put it in maintenance mode.

The forums have been disabled (but are still archived) and a mailing list has been created for support

If you are interested in contributing to NetMRG feel free to get in touch with us. Thanks for all your support over the years.

NetMRG 0.20

In addition to all the changes in 0.19, 0.20 brings you the additional improvements:
Major feature enhancements and bug fixes; Fixed compilation under GCC 4.3; restructuring of view pages to show graph titles (for easier in-page searching) and icons for graph actions; fixed mysql 5 compatibility; added device properties (keeps track of things like model #, serial #, etc); added ability to chain interfaces to travel between them; added ajax monitor selection on graphs.

NetMRG 0.19 Devel Release

A short 451 days after the last release, we at least have a new development release!
A number of large improvements have occurred over the past year, the most prominent of which is the interface redesign. The goal is to give more room to wide graphs, and give more room for some view-page enhancements in the future.
We've also started down the road towards multi-language support and would love to hear from people with experience in this and that are interested in providing translations.
Our license has also changed to GPLv2. We're hoping that this will allow more open development and allow our program to be included in more projects.
One last notable inclusion is rrdtool 1.2 support. This makes for much nicer looking graphs since it adds support for true-type fonts and anti-aliased lines. Try it out - just be sure to upgrade your netmrg.xml file!
Feel free to try it out and report problems in the forums as usual.

Update Screen Shots with Progress of 0.19

We have some new screen shots featuring our new interface. There's a lot that's still not done, but we thought you should at least see how things are panning out. Feel free to let us know what your think in our General Discussion Forum, or feel free to contact us.

Subversion Access

We finally have access to our subversion tree for non-developers. Links still need changed on the website, but you can get into the stuff now. We also need to work on building snapshots, but we'll get to that soon, too.
To checkout our current tree, try:
svn checkout netmrg
And you can also browse the subversion repository.

CVS down; upgrading to SVN

Our CVS server (both the anonymous pserver access and the web access) is currently down. We're in the middle of upgrading to subversion, which we feel will be a much more useful revision control mechanism. Once this is done, we'll get the docs updated and new snapshots being generated.

NetMRG 0.18.2 Released

Minor Bug Fixes; Fixed some escaping problems on the interface cache page, disabled the 'quickprint' Net-SNMP option for better compatibility, fixed the snmp-failure test, fixed an SVO-user view issue, and added failover for duplicate ifNames when adding interfaces.

NetMRG 0.18.1 Released

A minor bug was introduced when we were adding parsing of SNMP values. Due to this bug, negative SNMP values would be converted to positive values. We encourage all users to upgrade to 0.18.1.

New Website Released

Although it should be a bit obivous, the new website has been released. Hopefully you'll find it easier to navigate and find the information you need. Most of the changes are visual, but content on many of the pages has changed, as well. In particular, we added a 'contrib' section to the download page. Our screen shots now have little description fields about each one so you know what you're looking at. If you have any comments, we'd love to hear about them in the forums.

NetMRG 0.10 RPM Updated

We've updated the aging 0.10 NetMRG release to work with Fedora Core 1. You can find a new RPM in the (updated) download section, as well as a rrdtool package in the contrib directory that we've rolled to work with FC1.

The First NetMRG Release - 0.10

The first real release of NetMRG is available. There are a number of major bugfixes, so we recommend everyone upgrade. Major bugs that should be mentioned:
  • DB Error when viewing monitors
  • DB Error when viewing slide show w/o any active devices
  • When creating some graphs, width and height would always be zero
  • Conditions based on 'rate of change' should work now
Other than these, docs have been much improved; available are html docs, a netmrg-gatherer man page, and a text version of everything should be installed now.
2003-09-15 11:40:00

2003-07-28 19:00:00

First NetMRG Prerelease - 0.10pre1

We've got our first pre-release, as well as some basic docs for how to get it running. If you've been running cvs snapshots, we'd recommend reinstalling, as we can't provide upgrades to those who already have a running installation. Check out links on the left if you need docs or want to see a demo installation.
2003-07-14 21:55:00 live!

Welcome to the live NetMRG Website!
This has been a long time in the making; and is a good indication that the release is finally coming ("soon"). Feel free to checkout the CVS Tree or download one of our CVS Nightlies in the meantime until we get a pre-release worked out. Things are stabilizing a good bit, but we do have some minor stuff we need to work out before the release. We'll try to keep you posted throughout the month.
