Smart SNMP polling

We've designed and implemented a new SNMP polling algorithm that helps to greatly decrease device synchronization time.

When adding an SNMP device account, this algorithm quickly detects MIBs the device supports and allows operator to select ones to be monitored. After that, only OIDs defined in the selected MIBs will be polled.

However, if you want to obtain all SNMP variables provided by device, you always fall back to original SNMP walk method.

Release 4.41

After a month of intensive development, we're presenting AggreGate v4.41. It finally provides support for grouping device settings, operations and events. This feature greatly simplifies servicing devices that have thousands of settings, such as SNMP-enabled routers, BACnet controllers, Java application servers (JMX device driver), etc.

The new release delivers over 200 improvements and fixes for AggreGate core and different modules, so we suggest to upgrade your installation.

AggreGate SDK

We are almost ready to publish open-source AggreGate SDK that includes four parts:

  • LinkServer API for full remote control of AggreGate LinkServer and all connected hardware
  • Driver Development Kit (DDK) for creating new LinkServer device drivers
  • Plugin SDK for extending LinkServer with new data processing/presentation modules
  • Agent SDK for implementing Java-based AggreGate Agents

The SDK will include extensive documentation, examples, and Java source codes for all modules.

Network Manager Overview

Have been working on AggreGate Network Manager for several months, we've made a lot of modifications and improvements along with totally new features ---  many big, important, and really interesting ones. Should we say we have a new AggreGate Network Manager now? Looks like that.

Anyway we are currently (re-)documenting AggreGate Network Manager… and an idea emerged: why not to post some of its fresh and hot snippets here? We don’t see any impediments so far! And so here we go… starting with the Network Manager overview.
