openATTIC 3.4.3 has been released

We are happy to announce version 3.4.3 of openATTIC.

With the new feature development for openATTIC 3.x slowing down, this release is primarily focused on fixing bugs (e.g. an issue leading to error messages when deleting RBDs) and improving details in the existing functionality.

New features include the possibility to create RBDs with a dedicated data pool and to enable compression on Ceph pools stored on Bluestore OSDs. You can now change the password of a user via the openATTIC WebUI. We also added some new statistics for RBDs and Ceph Object Gateway (based on Grafana & Prometheus). We also updated the documentation and improved the usabillity of the UI in several areas. We have also worked on speeding up the loading of the list of RBDs by loading the data in parallel. In addition to that, this version also concludes the removal of support for Nagios/Icinga and PNP4Nagios.

openATTIC 3.4.2 has been released

We are very happy to announce the release of openATTIC version 3.4.2.

In this release, we've continued with the integration of Ceph Luminous features. It is now possible to configure the Ceph keyring via the 'System | Settings' menu. This release also implements the WebUI part of the previously introduced backend feature to create erasure coded overwrite enabled pools. openATTIC now also supports to enable compression on pools stored on OSDs with the "Bluestore" storage backend. The WebUI will notify you about RBD features that are not supported when you create a new iSCSI target. Developers will benefit from the ability to overwrite global settings for the backend and frontend via local settings files.

Beside the new features mentioned above, this release also includes various bug fixes and minor improvements. It is possible to delete non-empty RGW buckets now, but please take care, this will also remove buckets that are still in use, e.g. by NFS Ganesha. When a new RBD is created, the old format is not used anymore.

openATTIC 3.4.1 has been released

We are very happy to announce the release of openATTIC version 3.4.1 In this version we completely removed Nagios/PNP4Nagios graphs from the UI and installation in favor of Prometheus/Grafana.

We've continued with the integration of Ceph Luminous features. The 'allow_ec_overwrites' flag can now be set when creating erasure coded pools via the REST API. The UI part is currently under construction. Enabling the features "layering" and "striping" at once is also supported when creating an RBD now. Furthermore support for the new 'ceph health' format has been integrated.

The UI settings page has been extended to support the configuration of Grafana and gracefully handle a not properly entered config - which means it's no longer needed to set this configuration in /etc/sysconfig/openattic or /etc/default/openattic. The Salt-API could now be configured by using sharedsecret-key authentication, in addition to 'auto'. As usual we also improved some exsting UI features, this release, for example, contains help-text changes to provide users with more troubleshooting hints for possible solution.
