Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Have the gridalarms plugin respect Maintenance Schedules like it parent plugin thold does

The gridalarms Cacti plugin was initially a fork of the thold plugin which supports the concept of a Maintenance Schedules, but this functionality was never implemented in gridalarms. We would like to see if that functionality can be added to gridalarms as well.

    For this one, was thinking overnight that currently the maintenance plugin only handles host based Maintenance Plans. The Plugin should be extendable/hookable to allow different types of plans.

    Examples would include:

    • Site Plans (everything in the site)

    • Location Plans (everything in the location could be a closet, rack, etc.)

    • Cluster Plans (all hosts in the cluster)

    • License Service Plans (the license services themselves)

    The plans that would have to be hooked for RTM include:

    • Cluster Plans - hooked by the Grid Plugin

    • License Service Plans - hooked by the License Plugin.

    The Plans that should be supported in the base Cacti Maint Plugin should be both Site and Location.
