Before starting




  FusionInventory is not a software

      Agent: a software to install on the computers
      Server: handles communication with the agents
      Task: is prepared by the server, executed by an agent
pull / push




   FusionInventory enables ”push” or ”pull” mode

      ”pull”: Agent =⇒ Server
      the agent contacts the server.
      ”push”: Agent ⇐= Server
      the server initiates the contact.
Available servers today

  Questions
Why GLPI for the server?




     We’re also members of the GLPI community
     Motivation: Don’t reinvent the wheel!
     Avoid having a second database and
     synchronization
     Focus on what’s important to us - let GLPI do the rest
GLPI: about (1/4)




     Powerfull web based asset management software
     Project started in 2003
     LAMP
     Provides a complete plugin API

SNMP




  SNMP origin

       A standard
       First RFC in 1988
       Designed to monitor equipments
       3 versions 1, 2c, 3 (Cyphering)
       OID: Information location
       MIB: A collection of OIDs
SNMP: what for in FusionInventory?




  How do we use SNMP?

     Identify remote devices (network equipments,
     printers, ...)
     Perform a remote inventory
     Get the most important informations
SNMP: a nightmare




  “Please support my hardware, here is the MIB!”

     Might be hard to find
     Often no free or not redistributable
     Important informations might be missing
     But worth, they may be wrong !
SNMP: a nightmare




  “Please support my hardware, here is the MIB!”

     Might be hard to find
     Often no free or not redistributable
     Important informations might be missing
     But worth, they may be wrong !
SNMP: an example




               Example: Cisco 6500 firmware
               12.2(33)SXI2a (02-Sep-09 01:00)
                   Serial OID:
                   .1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.11.1
               12.2(33)SXI3 (27-Oct-09 11:12)
                   Serial OID:
                   .1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.11.2⇐=
                   Gni?!
SNMP: outch
SNMP: how to be reliable ?




  We prepared our own “MIB”

     Manual work for each equipment
     stored in an XML file
     Defines relations between an OID and an information
     ex: serial number → OID 1.2.4.34.53...
     Supports dynamics OIDs
SNMP: how to be reliable ?




  A centralized database

     We’re implementing a centralized database
     In Beta stage
     You create and account and upload snmpwalks
     The tool helps you to make the model
     It’ll be available in the next release!

  What can be done

      Perform actions on the target computer
      Send files
      Consume less bandwith thanks to peer to peer
  Attention: FI is not a configuration management tool !
Software deployment (2/2)




  Why a new software deployment solution ?

     Use existing GLPI UI
     Use GLPI habilitations (groups/profils/entities)
     Multi-platform

  Questions
vCenter / ESX / ESXi




  The problem
  Black boxes: no way to install an agent on the host...
vCenter / ESX / ESXi




  The solution
  The agent can use SOAP API to:
      inventorize hardware
      list virtual machines per host
      inventorize each ESX box (in case of a vCenter)
vCenter / ESX / ESXi: the command line tool




  f u s i o n i n v e n t o r y −esx −−host vcenter −−user foo 
     −−password bar −−d i r e c t o r y /tmp
  Send inventories to the server :
  f u s i o n i n v e n t o r y −i n j e c t o r −v −− f i l e /tmp / ∗ . ocs 
     −u h t t p s : / / s e r v e r / p l u g i n s / f u s i o n i n v e n t o r y /
vCenter / ESX / ESXi: GLPI UI




                       An interface in GLPI

                          Define credentials
                          Define vCenter/ESX/ESXi
                          address

  Questions
Real use experience




  Why use FusionInventory and GLPI (1/2):
      2 schools were merged and had grown: 400 each →
      1000 students today
      IT departments merged and quickly grown
      2008: Regular financial audit - including IT assets.
  We had to get a an inventory without tons of man-hours:
  QUICKLY.
Real use experience




  Why use FusionInventory and GLPI (2/2):
      Proprietary solution highly cost intensive - while
      restricted in features
      Experience with superiors: If it’s OSS, it has to work
      OCS was able to get all our computers’ data
      GLPI had the nice UI + held all other asset data
Real use experience



  OCSinventory-ng side:
     OCS lagged behind with Windows compatibility,
     regular GLPI sync problems
  Why FusionInventory:
     Client: Agent easier to deploy 3 platforms
     Server: PHP + Perl → PHP
     Deployment: 1 internal git tree of GLPI + plugins
     IT staff: 2 UIs → 1 UI
The good, the bad ...




  There are also downsides - nothing is perfect:
      Documentation mostly fr-FR focused
      l10n: de-DE had quite some ”frenchisms”
      FI for GLPI lags behind major GLPI releases
      Ticket notifications require lots of local tuning (yet)
  ... no: There is no true ugly thing I found
Finally



      GLPI + FI automated lots of tasks no sysadmin wants to
      do manually with +300 computers
      We still use a fraction of GLPI’s features, but growing
      (Cert management!)
      Auditability → Made superiors happy
      OSS proved to work: Swiss-german education -
      normally not that easy
      Got in touch with nice community
      Have to polish my french regularly ;-)

  • 27. SNMP SNMP origin A standard First RFC in 1988 Designed to monitor equipments 3 versions 1, 2c, 3 (Cyphering) OID: Information location MIB: A collection of OIDs
  • 28. SNMP: what for in FusionInventory? How do we use SNMP? Identify remote devices (network equipments, printers, ...) Perform a remote inventory Get the most important informations
  • 29. SNMP: a nightmare “Please support my hardware, here is the MIB!” Might be hard to find Often no free or not redistributable Important informations might be missing But worth, they may be wrong !
  • 30. SNMP: a nightmare “Please support my hardware, here is the MIB!” Might be hard to find Often no free or not redistributable Important informations might be missing But worth, they may be wrong !
  • 31. SNMP: an example Example: Cisco 6500 firmware 12.2(33)SXI2a (02-Sep-09 01:00) Serial OID: .1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.11.1 12.2(33)SXI3 (27-Oct-09 11:12) Serial OID: .1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.11.2⇐= Gni?!
  • 33. SNMP: how to be reliable ? We prepared our own “MIB” Manual work for each equipment stored in an XML file Defines relations between an OID and an information ex: serial number → OID 1.2.4.34.53... Supports dynamics OIDs
  • 34. SNMP: how to be reliable ? A centralized database We’re implementing a centralized database In Beta stage You create and account and upload snmpwalks The tool helps you to make the model It’ll be available in the next release!
  • 35. ... END OF INTERLUDE ...

  • 68. Real use experience Why use FusionInventory and GLPI (1/2): 2 schools were merged and had grown: 400 each → 1000 students today IT departments merged and quickly grown 2008: Regular financial audit - including IT assets. We had to get a an inventory without tons of man-hours: QUICKLY.
  • 69. Real use experience Why use FusionInventory and GLPI (2/2): Proprietary solution highly cost intensive - while restricted in features Experience with superiors: If it’s OSS, it has to work OCS was able to get all our computers’ data GLPI had the nice UI + held all other asset data
  • 70. Real use experience OCSinventory-ng side: OCS lagged behind with Windows compatibility, regular GLPI sync problems Why FusionInventory: Client: Agent easier to deploy 3 platforms Server: PHP + Perl → PHP Deployment: 1 internal git tree of GLPI + plugins IT staff: 2 UIs → 1 UI
  • 71. The good, the bad ... There are also downsides - nothing is perfect: Documentation mostly fr-FR focused l10n: de-DE had quite some ”frenchisms” FI for GLPI lags behind major GLPI releases Ticket notifications require lots of local tuning (yet) ... no: There is no true ugly thing I found
  • 72. Finally GLPI + FI automated lots of tasks no sysadmin wants to do manually with +300 computers We still use a fraction of GLPI’s features, but growing (Cert management!) Auditability → Made superiors happy OSS proved to work: Swiss-german education - normally not that easy Got in touch with nice community Have to polish my french regularly ;-)
