i would say - ralph 3 has different documentation, quickstart is a good start http://ralph-ng.readthedocs.io/en/ng/user/quickstart/
so ralph 2 docs could be not compatible with the newest version
Stefaan Vanbillemont
@kariboe
thanks! I will go and explore!
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
just use the latest
ok
Stefaan Vanbillemont
@kariboe
is there a list of events where I can see/speak the Ralph team? (in europe)
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
we will attend the europython conference
and we plan to make open Ralph Days in Poland, this fall
Stefaan Vanbillemont
@kariboe

In ralph 2.3 impact analysis you can't check full path of the CI like. Router-switch-server-service except opening new tab for every CI. In ralph 3 would it be possible to have one chart where you can open every CI and watch the full relationship path? and also is it possible to get read-only configuration data to ralph from servers and in which form?
Markusolavit
@Markusolavit
and is API different in 3 than in 2.3?
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
@Markusolavit it's hard to say, we don't have on our roadmap complete graph presentation
if open source community make such a feature, i think we can merge it into 3
Markusolavit
@Markusolavit
Okay, that would be great feature :),, And how about getting read-only configuration data to ralph?
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
hm. What does it mean?
any examples?
Markusolavit
@Markusolavit
like server is running apache, and ralph would show its configuration in servers information
only text
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
we have something in development called ralph-cli https://github.com/allegro/ralph-cli
which can scan servers and put information about disks, configuration, firmware, operating system and so on
Markusolavit
@Markusolavit
okay have to check it out
thanks :)

Hi guys, I'm running into a weird issue. I can't see the toolbar but and have reports of everyone else on the team that the toolbar is missing. Ralph3 is deployed on an Ubuntu 14.04 server via the deb package and i have followed the instructions to the dot. Here is a screenshot https://www.dropbox.com/s/0i5e2dnmvki0av4/Screenshot%202016-06-23%2019.22.27.png?dl=0
has anyone else ran into an issue like this? Thanks

neW1-
@neW1-

Mateusz Kurek
@mkurek
@neW1- allegro/ralph#2496 - here is fix for your bug - it'll be merged tomorrow

@mkurek thanks! How much time would it usually take to reach the debian repository?
Mateusz Kurek
@mkurek
about 15-20 minutes after the PR will be merged (it's uploaded automatically)

@neW1-
i updated to the latest ralph-core just now and get a 500 internal error when i try to visit the web page. Also getting the same errors when trying to resync the menus
Mateusz Kurek
@mkurek
@neW1- the newest deb wasn't uploaded yet to debian repo
neW1-
@neW1-
My bad, debug=true got reverted to false after the upgrade, no more internal errors
oh ok, i'll wait for it
Mateusz Kurek
@mkurek
@neW1- new deb should be in repo
neW1-
@neW1-
@mkurek thanks, i can confirm that it is indeed fixed!
Mateusz Kurek
@mkurek

Hello, does Ralph give me the ability to track my Hard Drives and IP addresses? I'm looking to track for each individual drive in each of my physical server such things as - Serial, Warranty Expiry, Installed Date tracking and I'd like to be able to report on this HDD detail per server as well as be able to report on all IP's and which IP is assigned to which Host. Does Ralph have this level of detail available? Thank you.

I'm confused...is Ralph 3 a full version or should I be installing Ralph 2 since Ralph 3 isn't full/finished?
Pierre-Yves Dubreucq
@pydubreucq
@greavette Ralph 3 is not fully finished, but it should be soon. It's better to begin to play with Ralph 3 I think (not for production)
greavette
@greavette
Thank you for this response. Will Ralph 3 allow me to add in more fields to, for example, the Hardware Generic components so I can add in dates of when a hard drive or stick of Ram was installed...or add new fields to Hardware Network tab so I can add in which eth NIC is used for cablling? I find Ralph almost perfect for my needs but there are a few fields missing to make it better for my use case.
Is there a place where I could make suggestions for new functionality (even if it just some new fields required)? Thank you.
Mateusz Kurek
@mkurek
hi @greavette . Ralph3 will be finished soon and we're working on the components (hard drives etc) right now. To this day we've added ethernet and memory components. IPAM feature is also ready to play with (see Network tab of single host).
greavette
@greavette
This is fantastic news! Thank you for your hard work on this project. I look forward to these new additions. Could I ask if your new components section will allow me to keep track of each hard drive in each bay on our server for the following - Make/Model, Serial Number, Size, Drive Bay Location, End of Warranty date and Date of install? Come to think of it...this same detail could be applied to RAM as well (instead of Drive bay DIMM slot). Would reporting be able to give us this new detail on HDD and Ram as well?

This Ralph Asset Management System you've created has so much potential! I have lots of questions though and I don't know where to ask them so I'll add them here for now. If there is another place to confirm Ralph functions that I should post this please let me know. I've now installed Ralph 3 on my virtual machine. I'm reading the documentation and I'm confused by the potentially three types of Ralph's that exist. Ralph 2.x (obviously an older verion), Ralph-NG and Ralph 3. Is Ralph 3 going to be your go forward version to use? Where does Ralph-NG fit in?
Ralph 2.x seems to have some very good features like discovery. I don't see discovery in Ralph 3? Is there a roadmap of what currently exists in Ralph 2.x that will be incorporated into Ralph 3? I would like to test the discovery agent of Ralph but can't find it in my install of Ralph 3.
How can I change the heading of some fields in Ralph 3? I see in Hardware components the item heading of "memories'. I want this to say RAM instead. Is there a way to customize the headings to what I need/want?
I see Ralph 3 allows me to add custom fields...but it's not quite the way I need it. For example, in Memories section I want to add in the DIMM slot used by that RAM stick. Or another example, I want to add in the eth port used by a NIC/IP address. How can I add in extra fields to existing data collection?
