We have updated our Vagrant box hosted on the Atlas platform with latest OpenNMS Horizon 17 pre-configured with RRDtool. This is also the first VirtualBox image which comes with a pre-installed Grafana 2.5 and has the Grafana OpenNMS Plugin as data source installed and is ready to be used. All you have to do is run
vagrant init opennms/vagrant-opennms-ubuntu-stable
If you run the default Vagrant box it uses a NAT interface. To have access to the running application from your box just add the following lines in your Vagrantfile:
config.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest: 8980, host: 8980
config.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest: 3000, host: 3000
You want to build the box for a different provider than VirtualBox with packer just fork or contribute to the opennms-packer repository.
We have added a also a quick install script for Debian and Ubuntu.

We welcome our new release of OpenNMS Horizon 17 with code name Glen Moray.
Like a good single malt Scotch whiskey it took some time to get the release out – but we think waiting was worth it. The most obvious change is the a more slimmed down web app layout.
We have added a new visual component to show alarms and outages in a heat map which can be used as an additional component on the start page or as a full screen view.
The JMX data collection configuration tool is reworked and improved. It allows to interactively create your data collection configuration for your Java applications with JMX.
The documentation is improved and we have removed unnecessary modules and focus on Release Notes, Installation Guide, User Guide, Administration Guide and Developer Guide.
We moved the content how to develop new documentation from the Documentation Guide to a Developers Guide section.
The distributed components with OpenNMS Minion is introduced in the admin area.
Important to notice Linkd with the SVG map is removed. Enhanced Linkd with Topology view is now the new default.
Otherwise real SSO via Kerberos (SPNEGO) and LDAP is enabled we integrate now with OTRS-3.1+ Ticket system.
We added a JMS Alarm Northbounder to make it easier to integrate OpenNMS in larger management application stacks.
A lot of improvements to the Grafana support was made. We support now the version 2.5.0 of Grafana. The OpenNMS Grafana Data Source allows filtering and trending performance data and the Newts integration is improved.
We have added support for following devices:
- Added trap support for Infoblox devices
- Adding SNMP traps for Raytheon NXU-2A
- Add A10 AX load balancer trap events
- Add Force10 Traps
- Event definition for Juniper screening SNMP traps

We welcome a new minor OpenNMS Horizon release 16.0.4 with codename Doorman. This is a bug fix release and all solved issues can be found in the Release Notes.
We got noticed from one of mailing list readers about a security issue. This article explains this issue in all details.
The research shows that it is possible to execute code on the OpenNMS server remotely due to a bug in the Apache commons library, which OpenNMS uses. There are two types of issues, one is remotely exploitable code and the other is local privilege escalation. Firewalling TCP port 1099 changes the attack vector into a local privilege escalation. The issue with local privilege escalation has still to be investigated. Make sure you allow only IPv4 localhost and IPv6 ::1 to access TCP port 1099.
For security issues we have a contact address which you can find in the Contact Us section on http://www.opennms.org.
We have a new release of the OpenNMS Grafana Datasource which is now compatible with Grafana v2.5.0. There are also some improvements regarding layout. Most importantly we have a now the possibility to add filters which can be applied on the data, e.g. Trend- and Peak filter. It is also possible to use Grafana templates to get whole dashboards more dynamic.
You can find some additional notes can be found on our maintainer and author Jesse White and his blog. If you want to get started go to the Grafana page in our wiki.
Thank you very much to all attendees and people who organized the OpenNMS User Conference 2015. We had a great time and for the ones who couldn’t be in Germany. We’ve uploaded all videos to a OUCE 2015 Youtube playlist for the OpenNMS community.
Some speakers added their slides and are archived in our conference system.
Additionally I have to give a big thank you to the Bad Voltage guys, they did such a great job entertaining the crowd and I recommend highly getting a Podcast subscription.
You can find the recording of the Bad Voltage live show on the Bad Voltage website.
