Also, please add:

Long overdue support for IPV6 addresses (there are feature requests on this forum going back to 2009)

Support for probing services over SSH tunnels so that we can check services on remote networks, not directly connected to the Dude server.

Thanks,
Jason

Hi,

I really would link to see a dude integration with the google maps API. I imagined a specific field where you would put the location Address and when you hover the mouse over this icon the pop-up window would show the location on google maps. Here is a quick mockup that i made for these feature.

Going to shamelessly link to a couple of my feature requests
Chart scaling
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=118624&p=584908#p584908
and Agent Behavior
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=117960&p=582415#p582415

I would also like to request better device linkages. Being able to move the location that the link connects to on the device, being able to give a smooth curve or rigid angle to a link, moving the device label on the link. Pretty much anything that can keep me from needing to do this.

Ability to control the icon color based a color variable that can be used in a function.

Nested Functions on interface device labels, this function doesn't work;
[if(Interface.OperStatus="up","","Interface Trouble")]

Allow custom field to be used as a variable in a function.

Prefer 64 bit counters.

Access the RRD variables in an advanced tab for the link.

Thanks,

Network Maps:
It would be handy to have a user-option that can rotate through the Network Maps on say a 10 second/predetermined cycle showing all the elements laid out.

For a visual output in a SysAdmin's office it could then bring to attention any devices down, especially where a Flash or Popup may lock to the Map a device has failed on.

In a few places we are looking at old refurbishing old WinXP Thin Clients (the type that erases an unsaved session on reset) to standalone Dude clients for this exact purpose. So far a static map of the main network is very handy but adding this would be one heck of a next step up!

Hello,
It would be awesome to add an automatic and manual export option of map as it was in the (very) old 4.0beta3 version.
The map could be sended by ftp, for instance...
I used to export this map and then create a planned task that send this page through FTP to a web site. I was then able to offer my users a simple view of our network...
Really essential :-)

I'd like to have import/export between winbox ( Addresses.CDB / addresses.WBX ) and Dude. We have multiple engineers installing devices. Every once in a while we merge the winbox addresses so we all know each customer box(es). For firmware updates dude will be more effective.
Also access to multiple dude server instances from within one client session.
Finally, move devices from one network-map to another

Re: Feature request list for Dude v6

Fri Sep 22, 2017 5:43 pm

Please, I will repeat my post from here:
viewtopic.php?t=108083#p541709

---------
Hello. Here we are used to use The Dude as we think its an awesome network monitoring tool.

One little thing is really annoying me, which is monitoring BGP Routers.
When we enable the RouterOS checkbox, all those routes (more then 1.2 million) would be read by The Dude.
If I enable SNMP, this also occur, which makes The Dude go crazy when a link become unavailable and all those routes need to disappear from the router.

So, would be possible to create a checkbox to not import routes from these types of routers?
This would be really effective as we could monitor all those services behind these routers but with only this exception.
I did read about many interfaces (used to appear in a PPPoE Server) also make this kind of behavior.

Maybe two checkbox, one about PPP interfaces and another about Routes.

Thanks!!!

User permission feature on Maps

Wed Oct 18, 2017 1:25 pm

What about a User permission feature! Not only READ OR WRITE!

I want to give read-only access to several user, but only for a few maps or pannels.

In addition to more granular user permissions, as requested by @ffrauter, could the users be authenticated using Active Directory, LDAP or RADIUS rather than just locally defined users in The Dude?

In the map view add device comments and some notification mark that shows that comments are added, what you can see when you move mouse over - like comments in MS excel for example!!
Sometimes it is nessessary to comment some configuration if you noticed some problems or give some comment about configuration...

please enable the dude to connect to routeros devices on other than the default port (eg. multiple devices on different winbox-ports or multiple devices behind one nat-gateway and portmapping active); connecting to those boxes via winbox is done using ip:port but the dude does not allow this, specifying ports for polling works, but that's no enough for the dude to get successfull routeros management active. (please correct me if I'm wrong :))

Hi,
Sorry to write that, but we're still waiting for outlines coming back.
If you make a search for "dude outlines" you see that even if it seems to be a small problem, its a wish of many of us.
We still stucked at Dude 2.2 due to this regression. We use Dude for visualisating of our network and the human mind can undersand much easier outlined objects.
If you think (or try to remember 2.2) you'll see that maps were much easier to oversee.
Now its like many flying objects with no correct border.
Sure, it had a technical reason 8 (10?) years ago to remove, but now its time to renew outlines and shadows.
Please think it over again, and give us back borders!
Thx
Peter

Ps: If you're MT user and think same, you can add a vote.

Link line indicates which end the statistics for that link come from.
Something like a little bump or circle or perhaps an arrow at the end of the link line that shows you which end of the link the statistics are coming from.

Hi!

Please add:

* Option Bind Dude server to an IP address on router for all probes and outgoing traffic.

This will allow one server to probe and monitor a remote branch office over a VPN running from Head Office router without having to install the Dude on branch office router. Gets rid of having to hack via round the corner NAT to get into an IPSEC tunnel from the LAN. Router external IP address is typically in a completely different network range to the ones used in defined VPNs.

Thank you!

Option Bind Dude server to an IP address on router for all probes and outgoing traffic.
See, this will actually cause some issues, especially when someone has multiple sites/networks connected via different methods/devices. Specifying single IP for all traffic seems like limiting current functionality. (currently, Dude uses best IP per each device/probe based on
/ip route
setting in RouterOS)
In my experience, I didn't need a remote Dude server to monitor remote network. However in some cases, I ended up with using remote RouterBoard as agent (it actually does not require dude server installed) because it gives more precise results - for example pings/probes are not affected by latency and packet loss over VPN tunnel so the results are more relevant to the remote network itself.

I have been using the DUDE for several years, for all this time I realized that I personally lacked some very necessary things:

* Multiple connections between two devices, why is it limited to one? For example, how to monitor multiple physical etherchannel connections?
* Restricting account access to only certain maps, for example, I do not need an account to see all the cards, I need to give read access to only one specific network map
* Drag-n-drop devices with mouse from map to map

@Masyanich I have solved this by using "static" element(s) between two devices. That way I can do non-straight lines as well as multiple lines between two devices.

Would be nice to have the ability to setup a dude cluster, multiple dudes synced with each other for redundancy and self repair from other nodes if something breaks or a node was down. Then they could spread the load between each other while gathering statistics.

Api access to everything would be awesome. Poll values, etc.

Be nice to be able to monitor the rx/tx signal & ccq of all wireless clients by api to track it for problems before customers call.

Only times I have had a database corruption is from sudden loss of power. I always make sure i don't run out of storage.

Hi,

I can't reduce the width of the device window, just I can make it bigger. And when you make it bigger you can't go back :(

I'm running the Dude on a AIR-RAD2400 and I use the client with Windows 10.

Greetings,

In Services - show ''network % downtime''
Simple calculation using total outages time / total up-time

Alternatively - allow export csv of Outages - from SERVICES

Thanks

please enable the dude to connect to routeros devices on other than the default port (eg. multiple devices on different winbox-ports or multiple devices behind one nat-gateway and portmapping active); connecting to those boxes via winbox is done using ip:port but the dude does not allow this, specifying ports for polling works, but that's no enough for the dude to get successfull routeros management active. (please correct me if I'm wrong :))
I agree with that. If we change the default winbox port, in The Dude, we lost the info in Devices >> RouterOS tab. Will be nice to custom port and maintain management.

One feature I'd really like to see is a linux client for Dude. At my current place of work, we use Raspberry Pis to run our overhead displays of monitoring, cameras, etc. I would really appreciate a version of the Dude client that ran on linux, and not using WINE or other Windows emulation.

I wouldn't think this would be much of an issue figuring that the backend to the Mikrotik is linux, as is the Dude server itself.

Best,

Hi, can be precious a system for triggering scripts on server for user map events. An option in map settings with a multiple choises for example action: (you select voices "Adding device" -> on-event-script: (and a box for script) in this way you open a world, i can add a device manually in the map and for example send an autoprovisioning file to newely added devce.

Or i remove a device? A script can be useful for clearing routes to deleted device or remove ppp profile of deleted device in server.

Would like to see a simple feature to DISABLE "ALL" the Notifications , Or Suspend the POLLING on all monitors? Or a way to Cancel all the notifications in the queue ?
Would like to do this without having to shutdown the server all together.

Some way to stop the dude server from overloading

When the uplink to the DUDE server requires maintenance or some similar 2-300 monitors all go off and after it starts you can't stop it. Just have to wait for them all to
Go down... then wait for them all to come back up.
Also causes alot of false outages in the graphs.

Maybe I should have cleaned my glasses, but I cannot find "Full CLI access to /dude in RouterOS" on the list?
This has been addressed on the forum before, and I am surprised that it is not yet implemented, as everything is in Winbox already....
I am planning to configure the Dude as a more fine-grained tool for monitoring and logging, and then it would be very convenient to be able to use scripting to access the data.
I would like to use it both ways, both for doing wholesale update of parameters/values for the hundreds of devices currently in the Dude, but also for reading values for statistical and logging purposes.

So Mikrotik, as it is all there behind the curtains already, when will we get full CLI read/write access?
