Open Issues / Dependency on other Projects

  • [Creation review logs] Meeting minutes
  • [Creation review inputs] <rovarga__> There is an RFC which translates to YANG to SMIv2 which would allow YANG models to be MIBs. Having automated translation would seem like the right way to do. Boron update This will be looked into in the future releases of OpenDaylight Cardinal. Boron release aims at getting the base framework in place for Cardinal feature.
  • [Creation review inputs] <edwarnicke> If plan is to run snmpd and snmptradp as separate processes. Why the decision was to also use snmptrapd and snmpd over Java native with snmp4j. Action: colindixon and edwarnicke to follow up about deployability concerns Boron update Recommendations incorporated to include Java native libraries (snmp4j).
  • [Creation review inputs] Action: <colindixon> To connect Cardinal with the OpenNMS guys to see if there's a way to keep some work in common Boron update Initial discussions were on usage of the SNMP library. As a follow-up, the usage of Java native libraries (snmp4j) unblocked the issues.
