Right along time with its six-month release schedule, Observium 0.14.11 has been released.
Upgrading, as always, is simple. Backup your installation, and then unpack the new files over the old ones.
cd /opt cp -r observium observium.bak wget http://www.observium.org/observium-community-0.14.11.tar.gz tar xzf observium-community-0.14.11.tar.gz cd observium ./discovery.php -h none
A couple of things that are new this release:
Something which I wasn’t fully aware of before, is that VMware ESXi has SNMP built in, its just not enabled out of the box (thank goodness, there’s enough devices with default “public” communities out there). Its simply to enable, as long as you have console or SSH access to the ESXi system.
esxcli system snmp set -c public esxcli system snmp set -l warning esxcli system snmp set -e yes
