[Release] – OpenNMS 15

We are happy to inform you about a new release of OpenNMS 15 with codename (Sundog) is ready to install. There have been 1177 new commits since 14.0.3

You’ll also notice that this version of OpenNMS has a new name – Horizon. We’ve always thought that OpenNMS represents the best network management platform available and the name is meant to reflect that. The main improvement for the 15 release is in the WebUI. The layout for the JSP pages is moved to bootstrap. It allows a more responsive WebUI in mobile phones, tables and phablets and should also make it easier to create themes for the Web-UI. The second really cool feature is the new “Resource graph” UI. The RRD PNG graph export is now rendered to the size of the browser window.

[Release] – PRIS 1.1.2

We have a new release of the Provisioning Integration Server (PRIS) which helps by integrating external data sources into OpenNMS.

If you want to integrate data from Microsoft SQL server and you want to use central authentication for SQL user, it is required to run PRIS on a Windows operating system. Otherwise you have to create a user on the Microsoft SQL server locally. For this reason a start script for Windows is added.

Additionally you can set the foreignId on the xls source and the AsciiDoctor plugin for documentation is updated.

You can find the detailed list of changes in the Release Notes.

OpenNMS, Chef and Vagrant

Configuration management is good and a lot of people use Puppet and Chef to get their zoo of machines under control.

David Schlenk build a really nice OpenNMS cookbook and published it free as in freedom on GitHub and in the Chef supermarket. The cookbook is up to date for OpenNMS 14 and allows very detailed configuration of OpenNMS through Chef.

There is also a really light Chef cookbook, which does just some configuration stuff like JRobin/RRDtool and some basic OpenNMS settings which is mainly designed to spin-up OpenNMS in a Vagrant Environment.

So feel free to give it a try.

Big thank you to David Schlenk for the work maintaining his great OpenNMS cookbook.
