We are happy to present our new venue for the 2014 OpenNMS users conference. The conference is organized by the OpenNMS Foundation Europe e.V. and takes place on
8-11th of April at the University of Southampton UK.
I’ve spend some time to customize the default theme for ask.opennms.eu. Our Q&A board is running on question2answer. They run also a market place where you can find free and closed source stuff. We used the Pixel n Grain Light theme which is licensed in GPLv2. We have customized it a little bit and published the theme on GitHub where you can – of course fork it – open issues for the theme. If you want to customize it, you can now pretty easy search and replace the color codes, it was before a little bit tricky.
We have also installed a plugin which adds additional fields for a question. It is required to provide the OpenNMS version and optional information about the Java version, PostgreSQL version and the operating system.
Mentioning GitHub – we have opened an organization on GitHub which should represent a melting place, a playground or an incubator for ideas around OpenNMS. The organization is called opennms-forge. It contains mostly little projects or tools which are not commercial supported and help using OpenNMS.
I have also moved our conference management system (frab) from sqlite3 database to a MySQL – so I can sleep now and the availability should be better. I have all websites in monitoring and recognized some issues with locked files with sqlite3 and got web access issues to the page. Since I’ve moved it to MySQL this issues seems to be gone.
In hope see you on the OpenNMS User Conference in Southampton
Thanks for all the fish and happy asking and answering
When it comes to learning about OpenNMS, all online help and community simply does not stand a chance against meeting in real life. And the best real life opportunity to meet OpenNMS people is this year’s OpenNMS User Conference in Southampton.
With the first talks and huge support from the OpenNMS Group we’ve been able to compile a first agenda. As a long running OpenNMS User (we just discussed the pain of SLA categories in the confcall on the conference yesterday, a drama which should be quite far away for most of you!) I’m excited to see “everything you need to get going” on the Agenda – and some more. While Ken’s talk about Syslog will give you key knowledge on how to integrate OpenNMS in your system landscape, Ronny will get you going on documentation and Eric will make us blush by sharing the up and downs he experienced with round robin data storage. And his way out. If you have, like most of us, to deal with virtual infrastructures, the germans will show off and explain how to monitor that efficiently and unveil the secret workings behind the OpenNMS integration for VMWare ;)
Another two integration topics come up with Markus and Jonathan: Markus focuses on configuration management integration and Jonathan will show you how to get those tickets created (and closed!). If you’ve never taken any OpenNMS training before, the first two days are definitely for you – I doubt that there are better people to get training from than Tarus BALOG and Jeff Gehlbach ;)

(And yes, we’re still looking for more stories and talks, let us know and fill the Call for Paper if you’d be willing to share your wisdom – our conference is a friendly one and it’s really easy to talk!)?
Looking forward to see you in April,
We opened our OUCE 2014 ticket sale with Amiando like last year. We had to pay fees for the sold tickets, but it was really an uncomplicated process, which saved us a lot of time. So you can order from here or via the fancy Amiando ticket sale page.
