DevJam 2015 Demos

The basic idea is put a bunch of smart good looking people from the OpenNMS community in one room, take care about fun, food, sleep and see what happens. We had this year 27 people from the U.S. and Europe to spend one week in our adventure to Open Source. Special thanks to Mike Huot, his family and The OpenNMS group to make this event happen. We had also the first time two community members sponsored by the OpenNMS Foundation at the conference. This year was amazing and we had a small demo session on the last day. Here are the videos if you are interested and can wait until next years DEVJAM!!!

DevJam 2015

On 22nd June the 5th season of the year is going to start … OpenNMS DevJAM! We have one week with ~30 attendees from Europe and the United States at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis to hack and learn with OpenNMS. The event is an unconference style and we gathered projects people want to investigate. We gathered the projects on the Wiki in DevJam 2015 page. If you are interested hit the opennms-devel list or go to real life IRC chat.

We have for the first time Umberto Nicoletti and Marcel Fuhrmann at the conference. Both are sponsored by the OpenNMS Foundation and the OpenNMS Group, the proposed projects around documentation and integration for ElasticSearch. For my point of view, I would like to make two workshops around our current documentation project and how we can improve the handling of configuration in OpenNMS.

I wish all a great time and happy DevJamming

New COMPASS mobile application

OpenNMS Compass is a modern mobile iOS and Android client for OpenNMS Horizon and OpenNMS Meridian servers.

Download_on_the_App_Store_Badge_US-UK_135x40

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.

Alarm Details

You can view your current alarms, as well as acknowledge, escalate, and clear them — right from the list, or from the alarm’s details.

screenshot-alarms-list

Node Details

screenshot-node-detail

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.

Requirements

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!

Getting Help with OpenNMS Compass

There are a couple of ways to get help with OpenNMS Compass:

We are happy to announce the new stable release of OpenNMS 16 Horizon with codenamed Daredevil. There a lot of enhancements which makes it absolutely worth to install. It is important to know, Capsd is now removed. We also started deprecating LinkD in favour of Enhanced LinkD. If you want to migrate your nodes from Capsd to Provisioning, there is a migration guide using PRIS. The most noticeable ones are:

  • Drools is updated to 6.0.1 Final
  • Trap support for Siemens HiPath 3000/8000
  • Capsd is now completely removed
  • RRD and resource data can now be retrieved via ReST
  • Deprecation of LinkD which means start moving to Enhanced Linkd
  • Migration of the GWT Dashboard to Vaadin
  • Surveillance views can be managed from the WebUI
  • Java 8 support and is now required

The full list of bugfixes and enhancements can be found in our Release Notes. With the resource data available on ReST Jessi White from The OpenNMS Group created a Grafana Plugin for OpenNMS which allows to create performance data dashboards with Grafana from the new measurements API via ReST.

Big thank you to all contributors and happy upgrading.

OFE goes DevJamming

We offered community members to get a sponsored flight to the University of Minnesota in Twin Cities. Big thank you to The OpenNMS Group, they cover the accommodation for both at the University. We got some proposals and are happy to announce, Umberto Nicoletti from Italy and Marcel Fuhrmann from Germany will join us hack and learn one week with OpenNMS. You may already know them as speaker from OUCE 2013. Umberto did a interesting talk about integrating OpenNMS with configuration management (SaltStack) and Marcel Fuhrmann explained how to do configuration management with help of Redmine. Along with that Marcel helped us organizing and structuring the Wiki and Umberto did also a few interesting side projects around OpenNMS which can you found in his GitHub repository. Looking forward seeing the crowd …

DevJam is coming!
