The OpenNaaS development team is proud to announce the release 0.29 of OpenNaaS! We release Netconf4j 0.0.9 too!
Next 8-10 October, IEEE CloudNet 2014 will be celebrated in Luxembourg. During Session 6: Data Center Network Management, Reliability, Optimization II, i2cat and SURFsara will offer a talk called OpenNaaS-based Networking Solution for Datacenter Automated Management exposed by José I. Aznar. In the talk there will be a demonstration using DC GUI front-end developed by Erik Ruiter of SURFsara (here you can find the code). It is possible to see the slides of the presentation: CloudNet’14 – OpenNaaS-based Networking Solution for DC Automated Management.
In this context, we offer a new network capability in order to satisfy our users requirements:
- Network topology capability
This new capability offers a view of topology based on network devices and links between them. OpenNaaS reads partial information of each router resource using its Topology capability that has been implemented using Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP, based on standard IEEE 802.1AB) capacities of Junos switches/routers.
In addition to this capability, Netconf4j library has been updated to 0.0.9 version. It offers support to arbitrary Netconf replies, a necessary feature in order to make easy the development of new Netconf capabilities, like Junos LLDP related.
Multiple core framework libraries of OpenNaaS have been upgraded in order to improve user experience, stability, disk space and speed of the platform.
Other minor improvements have been added and bugs have been solved.
