Abilis CPX 2000, release 8.5


Abilis CPX 2000, update 8.5.2

Released on September 19, 2017.

Enhancements

Videosurveillance
  • Added support for RVS v 5.1 that adds brightness scene measure and external LAMP drive:

    • When the brightness of the scene goes below the configured threshold the LAMP is ENABLED.

    • If LAMP is ENABLED and DIN-3 goes OFF, the DOUT-4 is set to ON in order to switch ON the LAMP.

    • LAMP is kept ON for the configured period. The period is extended, actually restarted, if DIN-3 goes OFF again.

    • DIN-3 can also be read by Abilis.

    • DOUT-4 can also be read/set by Abilis.

    • The exposure time is split in two parameters: EXPOSURE-TIME: is used when LAMP is OFF, and LAMP-ON-EXPOSURE-TIME: is used when the LAMP is ON

  • Added new parameters related to the driving of the lamp and modified EXPOSURE-TIME: meaning.

    [13:20:31] ABILIS_CPX:d p rvs-1 ?

    Figure: Camera parameters, modified and new

    Camera parameters, modified and new

  • Changed the way how alarms can be deleted. Now a multiple selection and removal is possible.

  • Added CP commands to show storages present on disk, identify orphan ones, and permit to clean those being in use and delete those orphaned.

    An orphaned storage is a storage for which the corresponding rvs-x,cam-y does not exists in configuration.

    The opposite is a storage in-use.

Script
  • Added the possibility to interact with CP.

  • Extended 'sendmail' function by two new optional parameters - filename of attached file and mimetype.

  • Added 'abilis.cpx.cls()' function support allowing the background script to clean its virtual console.

  • Modified 'dofile' procedure to use 'C:\APP\SCRIPT' directory as a default path for an interactive Lua console.

  • Change output and edit windows in the web pages to use monospace font.

Snmp
  • NPV links: added 'cxNpvStLinkClusId' statistic. Updated MIB and html document.

  • XTP, SYSLOG, SNTP, DNS, TFTP, LDAP, UPNPS: added support for 'DENIED-IP' statistics. Updated MIB and html document.

Bug fixes

Ssl/Tls
  • Fixed a bug in quick reuse of SSL sessions.

    The bug caused a SSL session failure if the new SSL open crossed the TCP closing phase.

Ip Router
  • LAN-PT: fixed bug when internal application sends packets specifying the destination MAC address.

    The bug was that the packet was discarded, and DHCP was the mainly affected service.

Ike
  • Fixed bug in IKE preshared keys: it was not possible to set KEY value.

Cti Router
  • Fixed handling of LCST table full.

    On table full any new need to insert a record was discarded, now the oldest record is removed to make room for the newest one.

  • Fixed recent calls logging in case of a call forwarded to a destination of the same user.

    The bug caused that if the forwarded call was answered the duration was logged equal to 0.

  • Fixed handling of failed Call Transfer procedure.

    The bug caused a frozen call in OPC.

Disa
  • Added generation of silence frames when an inbound callback call is proceeding or alerting to avoid underruns on the peer side.

    There was not a functional defect, just misleading statistics of VOICE-UNDERRUN in the peer side.

Npv
  • Added Cluster name to statistics output.

Abilisphone
  • Fixed bug in number normalization that in some situations did not add the correct prefix.

Cell
  • Hidden 'GAIN-IN' and 'GAIN-OUT' parameters for CTIP belonging to CELLKEY.

  • Improved handling of module reset upon system restart and improved module autorestart cases.

Videosurveillance
  • Fixed Camera Setting dialog: removed '1/125' value duplication in the list of Exposure time.

  • Fixed handling of local time.

    Now the timestamps shown by the Videosurveillance are the local time of the Abilis.

    Before this there was a mistake so that Abilis provided to browser UTC timestamps that it shown as browser local time.

EthUsb
  • Added an error recovery for a seldom situation.

    Recover is done executing a USB RESET if the communication with the device returns TIMEOUT consecutively for 10 seconds.

Traffic Analyser IP
  • Added 'Period' information to the 'pictures page' of historical analysis..

Syslog
  • Fixed 'HOSTNAME' parameter value: it was truncated to 4 characters (bug introduced in 8.5.0).

  • Added DENIED-IP statistic counter. Increased each time a request is discarded due to IPSRC and IPSRCLIST.

Upnps, Xtp
  • Added DENIED-IP statistic counter. Increased each time a request is discarded due to IPSRC and IPSRCLIST.

Sntp
  • Renamed SER-BADSRC statistic to DENIED-IP. Increased each time a request is discarded due to IPSRC and IPSRCLIST.

Dns
  • Renamed DROP-ACCESS statistic to DENIED-IP. Increased each time a request is discarded due to IPSRC and IPSRCLIST.

Tftp, Ldap
  • Renamed BAD-SRC statistic to DENIED-IP. Increased each time a request is discarded due to IPSRC and IPSRCLIST.

Web
  • Fixed IP/VPN status page: 'Res', 'Subtype' and 'Description were printed in lowercase regardless to the original case.

  • Users administration, VO settings: fixed not working button/link that allow to configure user/net number of the user.

Control Port
  • Fixed DEBUG FILE INFO command.

    In case of many files opened the output was truncated.

  • Various typos and help fixes.

Known bugs

Automation - Iolog
  • Analog graphs have a limitation on Y axis origin, it is forced to be <=0.


Abilis CPX 2000, update 8.5.1

Released on August 2, 2017.

Enhancements

Cell
  • Added possibility to make USB hub port disable via DEBUG support of CTIP. Now available at DEBUG RES:CTISYS CMD:L1PxxxG LSN:254. It works also if device isn't connected but UsbPortId is assigned.

    This command is helpful when testing the functionality of Abilis USB DONGLE.

  • Added a new kind of auto-restart that disables the USB port if the device has UsbPortId assigned and the Cell device does not connect within 150 seconds. If another non-Cell device appears on the same UsbPortId the procedure is aborted.

    It requires the special Abilis USB DONGLE to execute the power cycle of the connected device.

Bug fixes

Ip Router
  • Fixed a bug introduced in 8.5.0 that caused an abnormal usage of RAM.

    The occupied RAM was three times more than necessary, possibly causing out-of-ram problem on machines with many IpRes.

Ssl/Tls
  • Fixed a bug introduced with 8.4.6 and still present in 8.5.0 that caused an abnormal usage of RAM.

    The occupied RAM was two times more than necessary, possibly causing out-of-ram problem on machines with many ssl sessions.

  • Parameter sesnum: is now read-only.

    Ssl/Tls sesnum: value is now automatically computed summing the values of the following parameters:

    • HTTP sesnum-s:

    • FTP max-ssl-sess:

    • SMTP ses-tot:

    • OPC maxremotes:

Rvs
  • Fixed bug with camera parameters sharpness, contrast, brightness, saturation.

    Negative values were actually not set, leaving the previous value unchanged.

Script
  • Removed fg-sesnum: parameter because the intended feature is not implemented.

Known bugs

Abilis CPX 2000, update 8.5.0

Released on July 26, 2017.

Enhancements

System
  • Added support for M/B Gigabyte N3150ND3V.

  • Added support for AHCI SATA disk controllers.

  • Added support for XHCI USB controllers

  • Added support for e820 memory map table delivered by boot manager (BM).

    It allows to access the memory above 512 MBytes on Gigabyte N3150ND3V and C1037UN M/B, and on all M/B having fragmented memory.

    It requires BM version >= 2052, shipped with 8.5.0.

    Use SYS BMINSTALL <drive> command to install the new BM.

    The table can be inspected with the command DEBUG MEM -E820.

Boot Manager (BM)
  • Added support for AHCI SATA disk controllers

  • Added support for BIOS e820 memory map table, which is in turn passed to Abilis system.

Lan Passthrough (LAN-PT)
  • It is frequent to meet a customer that owns premises with a consolidated situation of devices, gateways, lan, telco lines, and so on, and at the same time the desire to explore new possibilities offered by the market to improve performances, reduce costs, increase reliability, and so on.

    The biggest obstacle is generally the fear of the work required in reconfiguring the customer device and the Telco routers as well as the possible outages during the experiments, and in some cases the coexistence can be very complicated even if all things are done in the right way.

    With Abilis Lan Passthrough we solve all these problems by inserting the Abilis between the customer LAN and the Telco Gateway(s).

    Two ethernet interfaces of Abilis are used, one toward customer LAN and one toward Telco gateways(s), giving the following opportunities:

    • Pass through or reroute IP traffic by means of the standard routing table

    • Pass through ARP requests and responses.

    • Pass through of all other ethertypes (disabled by default).

    • Preserve source and destination MAC addresses for pass through traffic.

    • Speedlimit, prioritization, traffic shaping, access list, are applicable on pass through traffic too.

    • Only one ip address assigned from the lan ip range is needed, it is used for both ethernet interfaces.

    • Abilis Lan Passthrough is compatible with VLAN and VRRP.

    • Multiple Lan Passthrough can operate simultaneously.

    The Abilis implementation belongs to an IP resource with the new subtype LAN-PT

  • A special procedure LOOP DETECTION is performed each time that the last interface goes UP, and if LOOP is detected the last interface is kept isolated. The condition is reset when the interface is disconnected.

    The purpose of this procedure is to avoid serious problems to the LAN in case that both interfaces are connected to the same switch: LAN-PT does a packet passthrough which appears to the switch as a cable loop.

    If loop is detected the situation looks like this one:

Ssl/Tls
  • All improvements to SSL/TLS are consolidated in 8.5.0, and can be summarised as follows:

    • TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2.

    • RSA and ECDHE-RSA key exchange (Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman key exchange with forward secrecy).

    • SHA1, SHA256, SHA384 signatures.

    • AES-128-CBC, AES-256-CBC ciphers suite.

    • Use of Intel AES-NI and Via ACE extensions for AES encryption, when offered by the CPU.

      These extensions increase the performance respect to the software only implementation by an average of 3x.

      The presence of these extensions is visible with the D CPUID command.

Eth and EthUsb
  • Added support of promiscuous mode and default session, currently used only by LAN-PT resource.

EthUsb
  • Added chip reset in case of speed mismatch for AX88772B and AX88772C.

    Unfortunately this strong recovery is not available in AX88772, AX88772A and AX88179.

Ip Router
  • Rewritten debug commands available for IPRTR.

IpRes
  • Deeply modified IpRes statistics related to the IP level.

    The statistics have been improved by adding new ones and removing obsolete or less important ones.

    Snmp MIB has been updated accordingly.

  • Renamed FRAG to LINK-FRAG

  • Renamed FRAGSIZE to LINK-FRAGSIZE. Note that starting with 8.4.4 the default FRAGSIZE (LINK-FRAGSIZE in 8.5) value is 1480 instead of 1400 when FRAG:AIPT.

Smtp
  • Added the possibility to use SSL/TLS in the connection to an external SMTP server for relay. For example:

    [18:00:57] ABILIS_CPX:d p smtp
    ...
           -- External SMTP server for relay --------------------------------------
           SERVER:smtp.gmail.com
           SERVER-TCP-PORT:587
           SERVER-AUTH:LOGIN                   SERVER-SECURITY:STARTTLS
           SERVER-USER:user
           SERVER-PWD:password
    ...
    
    [18:01:00] ABILIS_CPX:d p smtp ?
    ...
    SERVER:    FQDN name of SMTP Relay server to which all the mails for not
               local domain are forwarded. Max 64 characters in the range
               ['0'..'9', 'a'..'z', '-', '.'].
               FQDN name is forced to lower case.
    SERVER-TCP-PORT: SMTP Relay server TCP port [1..65535].
               The most commonly used ports are 25 for SERVER-SECURITY:NO,
               587 for SERVER-SECURITY:STARTTLS, and 465 for SERVER-SECURITY:TLS.
    SERVER-AUTH: Authentication type to use logging in relay server [NO, LOGIN,
               DIGEST]
    SERVER-SECURITY: Connection security used by Abilis to connect to the remote
               relay server [NONE, STARTTLS, TLS], where
               NONE = Plain text connection, insecure, no protection.
               STARTTLS = The connection starts in plain text then switches
                          to an encrypted connection or closes if fails.
               TLS = The connection starts directly encrypted.
    SERVER-USER: Username of the account on the relay server.
               Max 60 ASCII characters. Space not allowed.
    SERVER-PWD: Password of the account on the relay server.
               Max 60 ASCII characters. Space not allowed.

Snmp
  • Added 'lanPt(7)' value to the range of 'cxIpDgIfType' and 'cxIpStIfType'.

  • Modifications in cxIpStTable table: mainly obsoleted no longer supported variables and variables that now have both in/out counters; added few new variables.

  • Updated MIB and html document.

CtiSys
  • Removed TON-TO-PREFIX parameter. In the places where the conversion is required it must never be omitted, therefore the parameter is unnecessary.

Cti Router
  • Added Call Reservation feature as a companion of CallTry feature.

    The Call Reservation is a feature that has the same purpose of Calltry, i.e. to recall a busy destination when it becomes free, but instead of doing it with periodical retries it uses a feedback mechanism to make a single recall when the destination gets free.

    Call reservation is available only locally to an Abilis, i.e. origin and destination must be in the same Abilis.

    It can be ordered by SIP or POTS ports, when destination is a local SIP or POTS port.

    It is used by DISA queues when calling a local SIP or POTS destination.

    Call Reservation may not be available in some conditions, in that case the CallTry is used.

Disa
  • Added support for Call Reservation when calls are queued. See Cti router for details.

CtiSlink
  • Added the timer protection for pending outgoing calls to take 35 second at maximum.

    If timer expires the call is aborted.

    This is helpful to avoid the blockage of upper driver for an excessive amount of time. The problematic condition can take place in presence of many alternative attempts where each one ends with Q931 timeouts, thus summing all individual timeouts.

Calls Log
  • Changed the record format of calls log files, this means an automatic conversion of calls log file when system is updated to 8.5.0.

  • Changed the format of XML record sent to Javascript Client, and updated the related javascripts:

    • fields <s-date> and <s-time> have been unified in a single field <s-datetime> with ISO 8601 formatted value.

    • fields <e-date> and <e-time> have been unified in a single field <e-datetime> with ISO 8601 formatted value.

    • Formats comparison:

      Up to 8.4.x
      <s-date>2017-07-20</s-date>
      <s-time>17:50:10 CET</s-time>
      <e-date>2017-07-20</e-date>
      <e-time>17:50:10 CET</e-time>
      
      Starting with 8.5.0
      <s-datetime>2017-07-20T10:29:37+02:00</s-datetime>
      <e-datetime>2017-07-20T10:29:46+02:00</e-datetime>

Recent Calls
  • Added Recent Calls for user reporting.

    Both Recent Calls and Calls Log are enabled/disabled with CALL-LOG: parameter.

    In the user web pages Home, OPC, PcPhone the Recent Calls replaces the previous Calls Log.

    In the administration web pages both Recent Calls and Calls Log are available.

    The characteristic of Recent Calls is to summarize in a single record all the calls that a user may have received on any of his interfaces in consequence of a call incoming to Abilis. It typically happens in presence of groups, call forwarding, alternative routings, queues.

    With respect to the Calls Log, the information provided by Recent Call is simplified and much more effective for the user daily use.

    Recent Calls is what is also delivered to Abilisphone, although the updated version is required. At the time of this release Abilisphone is not updated yet.

Lua Scripting
  • Updated Lua Core from 5.3.0 to 5.3.4,

Simulator
  • Fixed CPS calculation caused by incorrect rounding,

  • Extended IPFRM options:

    IPFRM:     IP datagram size [20..2048 bytes, RANDOM, SAWTOOTH, TRIANGLE].
               20..2048 : generate IP frame of fixed length.
               RANDOM   : generate IP frame lengths randomly, between 20 and 1500.
               SAWTOOTH : generate IP frame lengths like a sawtooth, increase from
                          20 to 1500, and then restart from 20.
               TRIANGLE : generate IP frame lengths like a triangle, increase from
                          20 to 1500, then decrease to 20 and repeat.                                     

User preferences
  • Added RECENT-CALLS: parameter.

    [12:30:47] ABILIS_CPX:d pref user:admin
    ...
    --------------------
    CALL-LOG:             YES
    CALL-LOG-IN:          200
    CALL-LOG-OUT:         200
    RECENT-CALLS:         200
    --------------------
    ...
    
    [12:30:51] ABILIS_CPX:d pref user:admin ?
    ...
    RECENT-CALLS: Maximal number of calls to be logged in recent calls log
                  file [10..1000]  
    ...

  • Removed TON-TO-PREFIX parameter. In the places where the conversion is required it must never be omitted, therefore the parameters is unnecessary.

Control Port (CP)
  • Reviewed, fixed, simplified, all helps.
