Activities

Still closing some of the cycle 1 stories. The link-flap story still had some problems. Soon we’ll be able to test Siebel and Precision implementations as well. We also need to find ways to create automatic tests for Micromuse and Precision related stories.

Ongoing work on planning, responsibilities, Sourceforge, etc.

Re: Proposed method sending internal events to netcool

We might have to rethink the name of the “TicketAction” attribute. TicketAction=”open” causing an event to by send to netcool doesn’t quite fit the expectation induced by the name. Propably shortening it to just “Action” would be better. But don’t change anything just yet, since this would break a lot of things.

Ticket opening problem solved

Tickets open again in the deployed environment in the development environment. The reason this did not work was a configuration error I made when reverting a change I made in the SocketGatewayListener, in order to test event resending.

Sourceforge and checkin

When you check-in source into CVS, a notepad window is displayed in which you can enter commit messages. Also a line called Tracker: is shown. Here you can enter the story number that this check-in relates to.

However, do not delete the Tracker: line

It will cause the source forge home page and commit logger pages to fail. It is OK not to enter a number, just don’t delete the line itself.

Oracle install

Succesfully installed Oracle 9i/windows, after removing all traces of the old, failed install from the lunaris machine. Had to log in in safe mode to remove one particularly sticky file. I also deleted all registry entries manually.

Meeting with Micromuse VP of Product Management

We met with Brent Compton and Kristin Jordahl of Micromuse yesterday. The purpose was for them to update Y on the Micromuse product roadmap. I spoke with Brent for a while on direct database connection and functionality overlap between products.

  • While it will not be officially supported, Micromuse will continue to use the Sybase open client libraries for the foreseeable time, so all odbc/jdbc based access should continue to work. In addition they will, in all likelihood, publish their internal API for accessing the database next year. From the next version of Objectserver, Micromuse will use the multithreaded version of the sybase library
  • Considerable overlap in functionality exists in functionality of various products that were acquired by Micromuse. Over time Micromuse will move all monitoring functionality to xSM’s. Next year, configuration of ISM’s and A/SSM’s will be merged. Precision will be the discovery and topology based RCA engine. Nothing new, therefore.
  • no plans anymore for a general public / subscribe mechanism (a la RendezVous) for netcool products
