  • Bug fixes and improvements to netsa.script.golem.

Version 1.4.4 - 2014-01-29

  • Fixed error in netsa.script that caused a default for file params to be checked for before command-line arguments were handled.
  • Fixed default regex for label params in netsa.script.

Version 1.4.3 - 2013-02-18

  • Added server-side cursor support to netsa.sql’s psycopg2 driver, so that results are streamed back instead of fetched all together.
  • Fixed an exception caused by using num_prefix on values <= 1e-21.
  • Remove netsa_silk support version SiLK versions older than SiLK 3.
  • Provide unnamed arguments to scripts via netsa.script.get_extra_args().
  • Better support for finding non-standard Sphinx installs.

Version 1.4.2 - 2012-12-07

  • Fix problem where netsa.dist would not install manpages unless the distribution also had install_data.

Version 1.4.1 - 2012-11-09

  • Fail-on-use dummy IPv6Addr added to netsa_silk, so that the symbol may still be imported even when IPv6 support is not provided.
  • Minor bug fixes to prevent from requiring sphinx, and to improve documentation generation on projects with different needs.

Version 1.4 - 2011-09-30

  • NOTE: Version 1.4 of NetSA Python is the last version that will support Python 2.4. Future major versions of NetSA Python will require Python 2.6 or greater.
  • Added new netsa_silk module, which provides a bridge between netsa-python and PySiLK. When PySiLK is available, it uses PySiLK to provide a fast C implementation of IP address and related functionality. When PySiLK is not available, a pure Python implementation from netsa-python is used instead.
  • Added new netsa.script.golem script automation framework, for building scripts to maintain large time-based data sets (among other things.)
  • Added regex_help argument to netsa.script.add_text_param and add_label_param, to support providing a more useful error message when the regex doesn’t match the input.
  • Added heapq.merge and os.path.relpath to netsa.util.compat.
  • Replaced all temporary file code with new functions in the netsa.files module, to avoid duplication of effort. Similar functions in other locations have been deprecated and are now implemented using this version.
  • Replaced PID locking code with new functions in the netsa.files module, to avoid duplication of effort.
  • Improved’s results, particularly for time ticks.
  • Added a large number of new tests to improve compatibility testing for different versions of Python in the future.
  • Moved the netsa.script.get_temp_dir... functions into netsa.files, with slight renaming. The old functions are still available but deprecated.
  • Deprecated netsa.files.DirLocker, netsa.files.LocalTmpDir, and See the new functions netsa.files.acquire_pidfile_lock, examine_pidfile_lock, and release_pidfile_lock.
  • Deprecated netsa.files.datefiles.
