Package Namerancid
SummaryReally Awesome New Cisco confIg Differ
DescriptionRANCID monitors a router's (or more generally a device's) configuration, including software and hardware (cards, serial numbers, etc) and uses CVS (Concurrent Version System) or Subversion to maintain history of changes. RANCID does this by the very simple process summarized here: * login to each device in the router table (router.db), * run various commands to get the information that will be saved, * cook the output; re-format, remove oscillating or incrementing data, * email any differences (sample) from the previous collection to a mail list, * and finally commit those changes to the reivision control system RANCID also includes looking glass software. It is based on Ed Kern's looking glass which was once used for, for the old-school folks who remember it. Our version has added functions, supports cisco, juniper, and foundry and uses the login scripts that come with rancid; so it can use telnet or ssh to connect to your devices(s). Rancid currently supports Cisco routers, Juniper routers, Catalyst switches, Foundry switches, Redback NASs, ADC EZT3 muxes, MRTd (and thus likely IRRd), Alteon switches, and HP Procurve switches and a host of others. Rancid is known to be used at: AOL, Global Crossing, MFN, NTT America, Certainty Solutions Inc.
