This update for pmacct fixes the following issues:
Update to version 1.7.4p1
- fix, pre_tag_map: a memory leak in pretag_entry_process() has been
introduced in 1.7.4.
Update to version 1.7.4
+ Introduced support for the 'vxlan' VXLAN/VNI primitive in all
+ BMP daemon: added support for Peer Up message namespace for TLVs
+ sfprobe plugin: added support for IPv6 transport for sFlow export.
See /usr/share/doc/packages/pmacct/ChangeLog for all changes
- Do not longer build with support for the obsolete GeoIP
The GeoIP-interface has been discontinued by Maxmind. See
for details. Without the database GeoIP is useless.
pmacct is now build with support for libmaxminddb (GeoIPv2) that
provides the same features but with a new supported interface.
Update to version 1.7.3
+ Introduced the RPKI daemon to build a ROA database and check prefixes
validation status and coverages. Resource Public Key Infrastructure
(RPKI) is a specialized public key infrastructure (PKI) framework
designed to secure the Internet routing. RPKI uses certificates to
allow Local Internet Registries (LIRs) to list the Internet number
resources they hold. These attestations are called Route Origination
Authorizations (ROAs). ROA information can be acquired in one of the
two following ways: 1) importing it using the rpki_roas_file config
directive from a file in the RIPE Validator format or 2) connecting
to a RPKI RTR Cache for live ROA updates; the cache IP address/port
being defined by the rpki_rtr_cache config directive (and a few more
optional rpki_rtr_* directives are available and can be reviwed in
the CONFIG-KEYS doc). The ROA fields will be populated with one of
these five values: 'u' Unknown, 'v' Valid, 'i' Invalid no overlaps,
'V' Invalid with a covering Valid prefix, 'U' Invalid with a covering
+ Introducing pmgrpcd.py, written in Python, a daemon to handle gRPC-
based Streaming Telemetry sessions and unmarshall GPB data. Code
was mostly courtesy by Matthias Arnold ( @tbearma1 ). This is in
addition (or feeding into) pmtelemetryd, written in C, a daemon to
handle TCP/UDP-based Streaming Telemetry sessions with JSON-encoded
+ pmacctd, uacctd: added support for CFP (Cisco FabricPath) and Cisco
Virtual Network Tag protocols.
+ print plugin: added 'custom' to print_output. This is to cover two
main use-cases: 1) use JSON or Avro encodings but fix the format of
the messages in a custom way and 2) use a different encoding than
JSON or Avro. See also example in examples/custom and new directives
print_output_custom_lib and print_output_custom_cfg_file. The patch
was courtesy by Edge Intelligence ( @edge-intelligence ).
+ Introducing mpls_pw_id aggregation primitive and mpls_pw_id key in
pre_tag_map to filter on signalled L2 MPLS VPN Pseudowire IDs.
+ BGP daemon: added bgp_disable_router_id knob to enable/disable BGP
Router-ID check, both at BGP OPEN time and BGP lookup. Useful, for
example, in scenarios with split BGP v4/v6 AFs over v4/v6 transports.
+ BGP, BMP daemons: translate origin attribute numeric value into IGP
(i), EGP (e) and Incomplete (u) strings.
+ plugins: added new plugin_exit_any feature to make the daemon bail
out if any (not all, which is the default behaviour) of the plugins
+ maps_index: improved selection of buckets for index hash structure
by picking the closest prime number to the double of the entries of
the map to be indexed in order to achieve better elements dispersion
and hence better performances.
+ nfacctd: added support for IPFIX templateId-scoped (IE 145) sampling
+ pmacctd, uacctd, sfacctd, nfacctd: added a -M command-line option to
set *_markers (ie. print_markers) to true and fixed -A command-line
option to set print_output_file_append to align to true/false.
! fix, BGP, BMP, Streaming Telemetry daemons: improved sequencing of
dump events by assigning a single sequence number per event (ie. for
streaming pipeline scenarios in order to reduce correlation with
dump_init/dump_close messages). Also amount of record dumped was
added to the close message.
! fix, BGP, BMP, Streaming Telemetry daemons: removed hierarchical
json_decref() since json_object_get() borrows reference. This was
occasionaly leading to SEGVs.
! fix, uacctd: dynamically allocate jumbo_container buffer size as
packets larger than 10KB, previous static allocation, would lead to
! fix, nfacctd: wired (BGP, BMP, ISIS, etc.) lookups to the NEL/NSEL
! fix, nfacctd: search for IE 408 (dataLinkFrameType) was leading to
SEGVs. Also improved handling of variable-length IPFIX templates.
! fix, BMP daemon: solved an occasional truncation of the last message
in a packet.
! fix, BGP daemon: when processing bgp_daemon_md5_file, ipv4 addresses
were incorrectly translated to ipv4-mapped ipv6 ones as a result of
which TCP-MD5 hashes were not correctly bound to sockets.
! fix, BGP daemon: improved label-unicast and mpls-vpn SAFIs handling
(some bogus messages, multiple labels, etc.).
! fix, BGP daemon: introduced PREFIX_STRLEN to make enough room for
prefix2str() calls (before unsufficient INET6_ADDRSTRLEN was used).
! fix, BMP daemon: improved handling of ADD-PATH capability.
! fix, plugins: an incorrect evaluation in P_cache_attach_new_node did
make possible to buffer overrun in plugins cache allocation. This was
found related to a "[..]: Assertion `!cache_ptr->stitch' failed."
daemon bail-out message.
! fix, plugins: if pidfile directive was enabled, exit_gracefully() was
mistakenly deleting the plugin pidfile when called by a child process
(ie. writer, dumper, etc.).
! fix, plugins: when taking exit_gracefully(), if the process is marked
as 'is_forked', just exit and don't perform extra ops in exit_all()
! fix, plugins: re-evaluate dynamic tables/files name if *_refresh_time
is different than *_history period.
! fix, SQL plugins: a missing 'AND' was making SQL statements related
to src_host_coords and dst_host_coords fail.
! fix, GeoIPv2: if no match is returned by libmaxminddb, return O1 code
(Other Country) instead of a null value.
! fix, flow_to_rd_map: mpls_vpn_id was not working when maps_index was
enabled. Also partly re-written mpls_vpn_id handler.
! fix, nfprobe plugin: serialize_bin() function introduced for correct
serialization of custom primitives defined with 'raw' semantics.
! fix, PostgreSQL plugin: testing for presence of PQlibVersion() in
libpq to prevent compiling issues (ie. on CentOS 6).
! fix, MySQL plugin: including mysql_version.h to compile successfully
against newer MariaDB releases.
! fix, nDPI classification: send log message if 'class' primitive is
selected but nDPI is not compiled in; also updated code to follow
API changes in versions >= 2.6 of the library. Dropped support for
versions < 2.4.
! fix, sfprobe plugin: added (and documented) conditional for optional
export of classification info.
! fix, aggregate_primitives: field_type is now also allowed for pmacctd
and uaccd daemons so that it can be used for NetFlow v9/IPFIX export
(nfprobe plugin) purposes.
! fix, pre_tag_map: if no 'ip' keyword is specified, an entry of the
map gets recirculated in order to be set for both v4 and v6 maps. If
a 'set_label' is also specified, it was causing a SEGV. Now the label
is correctly copied in case of recirculation.
! fix, zmq_common.c: added option for non-blocking p_zmq_send_bin() as
otherwise program would block in case of no consumers (main use-case:
flow replication over ZeroMQ queues); as a result, a generous hwm
value was added on both sides of these queues.
! fix, zmq_common.c: ZAP socket moved inside thread to prevent failed
assert() when compiling with gcc7/gcc8. Also a single user/password
auto-generated combination is used for all plugins.
! fix, signals.c: SIGUSR1 handler for nfacctd and nfacctd is changed to
syncronous in order to prevent race conditions. Also, in pmacctd,
upon sending SIGUSR1, stats were not printed when reading packets
from a pcap_interfaaces_map.
! fix, plugin_cmn_json.c: if leaving protocols numerical (ie. proto,
tunnel_proto primitives), convert them to string-represented numbers
for data consistency for consumers.
! fix, util.c: open_output_file(), if file exists and it's a FIFO then
set O_NONBLOCK when opening.
! fix, pretag.c: pretag_index_report() was reporting incorrect info of
the hash structure built for the maps_index feature. Its format was
has also changed to be better parseable.
! fix, compile time warnings: several warnings were addressed including
but not restricted to -Wformat ones. Also an annotation was added to
the Log function to inform the compiler it's a printf-style function,
allowing it to give warnings for argument mismatches.
- --enable-ipv6 configure script switch has been deprecated and, as a
result, IPv6 support was made mandatory.
- BGP daemon: removed unused pathlimit field from bgp_attr structure.
- pmacct client: removed deprecated SYM field from from formatted and
- Build with support for
* Maxmind GeoIP DB v2
