OpenNMS Compass is a modern mobile iOS and Android client for OpenNMS Horizon and OpenNMS Meridian servers.
It provides a simple dashboard for viewing outage and alarm data, node details, and more.
Outage and Alarm Dashboard
At a glance, you can see a summary of any current outages and services with pending problems. One tap will take you to a more detailed view of outages or alarms.
On supported systems*, surveillance categories are also displayed, giving you quick access to availability just like your OpenNMS Horizon or OpenNMS Meridian server UI.
You can view your current alarms, as well as acknowledge, escalate, and clear them — right from the list, or from the alarm’s details.
View detailed information on your nodes, including SNMP attributes, address, availability information*, and outages.
If you are running the latest OpenNMS Horizon or OpenNMS Meridian release*, you can also update the geolocation of a node with the push of a button.
OpenNMS Compass runs on iOS 6 or higher, and Android 4.1 or higher
OpenNMS Compass supports the following OpenNMS server versions:
- OpenNMS Horizon version 1.12 or higher*
- OpenNMS Meridian version 2015.1.0 or higher
* Note: Some features are only available on OpenNMS Horizon 15.0.2 or OpenNMS Meridian 2015 or higher.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much does it cost?
A: OpenNMS Compass is free, ad-supported. You can remove the ads for just $1, or they go away automatically if you connect Compass to a Meridian™ server.
Q: I’m getting ‘permission denied’ errors, what should I do?
A: Some versions of OpenNMS are pickier about access and permissions than others. If your version of OpenNMS supports the “mobile” role, it is recommended that you add your user to that role in $OPENNMS_HOME/etc/magic-users.properties.
Q: I already have the old OpenNMS app. Did I waste my money?
A: Nope! Just keep the old OpenNMS app on your device until you have installed Compass. Go to the in-app-purchases screen in Settings, and there is an option to upgrade if the old OpenNMS app is detected. Once you have done so, it is safe to uninstall the old OpenNMS app and enjoy an ad-free Compass!
