What Are We Working on for Kiwi Syslog

Level 18

To receive updates on the Kiwi Syslog roadmap, JOIN thwack and BOOKMARK this page.


LAST UPDATED March 2015

We are just coming off the latest Service Release of Kiwi Syslog in which we added support for Windows 2012 R2 and the development team is already hard at work on the next version and I am pretty excited about some of the things we have coming.  Below is a highlight of some of these items in the pipeline.

  • IPv6 Support
    • The ability to receive not only IPv4 messages, but also IPv6 as well.
  • Enhanced SNMP Support
    • SNMPv3 Support
      • We already support the ability to both receive and send SNMPv2 traps, this will also add SNMPv3 support as well
    • Allowing trap "varbind" elements in output
      • O‌riginally suggested by our own head geek adatole when he was a customer, this is native supporting of the parsing of incoming trap data into "varbind" elements so that these varbinds can be used in output options (send syslog, email, log to file, etc
    • Enhanced SNMP Trap Forwarding
      • Similar to how we do with Syslog today, allowing you to retain the actual IP and trap message data from the Kiwi server
  • Enhanced Email Reports
    • Better reporting around system and message receiving statistics
  • Enhanced Web Console User Access
    • Removing the existing hard limitation of only 5 users accounts in the web console

The first item is for sure on my list of items for consideration for the next sets of releases.

Let me get with the PM of Orion and get the latest on their strategy there with Syslog, SNMP Traps, etc.

Understood and I have both of those on my list of items we are investigating deeper and are potentials for the release.  Once we have a more formal plan locked down I will communicate back to the community.

Looking forward for the update too, got excited with the write up about SNMP forwarding, but that fell apart when I dug deeper and it was revealed trap forwarding just wasn't going to happen. Receive / Filter SNMP traps and forward only traps of interest

Deal breaker.

Level 17

These updates are extremely exciting to me (and a bunch of other long time users as well!). Kudos to the development team for taking this on, and for putting up with all the pushing, whining, and demanding we have done over the months and years (done with love, but still...)

  • Enhanced SNMP Support
    • SNMPv3 Support
      • We already support the ability to both receive and send SNMPv2 traps, this will also add SNMPv3 support as well
    • Allowing trap "varbind" elements in output
      • Originally suggested by our own head geek adatole when he was a customer, this is native supporting of the parsing of incoming trap data into "varbind" elements so that these varbinds can be used in output options (send syslog, email, log to file, etc.)
    • Enhanced SNMP Trap Forwarding
      • Similar to how we do with Syslog today, allowing you to retain the actual IP and trap message data from the Kiwi server
  • Enhanced Web Console User Access
    • Removing the existing hard limitation of only 5 users accounts in the web console

I can't wait to kick the tires on the beta and RC for this! Thanks bshopp‌ and team for all the hard work!

Level 16

Great news !!

Thanks!!

SW need to push that in any multi pollers deployment just like AWS.

keep the trap load off the pollers.
