Stefan Sperling (stsp@) is developing a version control system, "Game of Trees". From <https://gameoftrees.org/>: Game of Trees (Got) is a version control system which prioritizes ease of use and simplicity over flexibility. Got is still ... [More] under development; it is being developed exclusively on OpenBSD and its target audience are OpenBSD developers. Got uses Git repositories to store versioned data. At present, Got supports local version control operations only. Git can be used for any functionality which has not yet been implemented in Got. It will always remain possible to work with both Got and Git on the same repository. GoT has been added to the ports tree as devel/got. It is the subject of a talk at EUROBSDCON 2019. Stefan has been involved in the discussion on Lobste.rs. [Less]

Martijn van Duren (martijn@) has committed a new Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) client, snmp(1): CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: martijn@cvs.openbsd.org 2019/08/09 00:17:59 Added files: usr.bin/snmp : Makefile mib.c mib.h ... [More] smi.c smi.h snmp.1 snmp.c snmp.h snmpc.c Log message: Import snmp(1), a new snmp client which aims to be netsnmp compatible for supported features. It only supports get, getnext, walk, bulkget, bulkwalk, trap, mibtree, and is SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c for now. This will shortly replace snmpctl entirely. People using snmpctl are encouraged to test and migrate to this code as soon as possible. Much help with the manpage from schwarze@ and jmc@ No objections from reyk@ "Roll it in" deraadt@ This should be appearing in snapshots shortly; if you use snmpctl much today, please do test and report back to Martijn about any unexpected behaviour or possibly even feature requests.

David Gwynne (dlg@) has committed to -current another new network driver - an 802.1Q Two-Port MAC Relay driver, tpmr(4). The main commit message explains the raison d'être: CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: dlg@cvs.openbsd.org 2019/07/31 ... [More] 21:05:46 Added files: sys/net : if_tpmr.c Log message: add tpmr(4), a quick and dirty 802.1Q Two-Port MAC Relay implementation a TPMR is a simplified bridge (as supported by bridge(4)). it only supports two ports, and unconditionally forwards frames between them. this is unlike a real bridge which can support an arbitrary number of ports and implements a learning algorithm.

David Gwynne (dlg@) has committed to -current a dedicated Link Aggregation (EEE 802.1AX) driver, aggr(4). The main commit message explains the raison d'être: CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: dlg@cvs.openbsd.org 2019/07/04 19:35:58 Added ... [More] files: sys/net : if_aggr.c Log message: add aggr(4), a dedicated driver that implements 802.1AX link aggregation 802.1AX (formerly known as 802.3ad) describes the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) and how to use it in a bunch of different state machines to control when to bundle interfaces into an aggregation. technically the trunk(4) driver already implements support for 802.1AX, but it had a couple of problems i struggled to deal with as part of that driver. firstly, i couldnt easily make the output path in trunk mpsafe without getting bogged down, and the state machine handling had a few hard to diagnose edge cases that i couldnt figure out. the new driver has an mpsafe output path, and implements ifq bypass like vlan(4) does. this means output with aggr(4) is up to twice as fast as trunk(4). the implementation of the state machines as per the standard means the driver behaves more correctly in edge cases like when a physical link looks like it is up, but is logically unidirectional. the code has been good enough for me to use in production, but it does need more work. that can happen in tree now instead of carrying a large diff around. some testing by ccardenas@, hrvoje popovski, and jmatthew@ ok deraadt@ ccardenas@ jmatthew@ [Less]
