I would like to start a discussion about your current ways to configure and monitor your WR networks. I would like to know how do you do that and how can it be improved.
As today WR switches can be configured by:
–ssh & make menuconfig
–download configuration form remote server (via tftp, ftp, http, etc)
Two first solutions does not scale at all. For the 3rd one, it would be nice to have something to manage configuration files on the remote server (at CERN we have such solution, but as today it is not exportable).
For monitoring we recommend to use SNMP. However there are some other possibilities that I can imagine like ssh+wrs tools or webinterface. IMHO: The latter two does not scale well.
At CERN for monitoring we use:
–Kibana for handling syslog messages
–icinga+Graphana for monitoring via SNMP
