Sensor monitoring with OpenNMS

With the installation of OpenNMS, three functional areas have to be created. The first describes the active status monitoring of the sensors via SNMP. In the second part the long-term data recording and it's presentation in web interface has to be configured. In the last step the SNMP trap MIB has to be imported to resolve correctly securityProbe's SNMP traps.

We begin with the creation of active monitoring of the attached sensors. Following
configuration files are needed:

akcp.capsd-configuration.xml (Capsd-Configuration for automatic sensor detection)

akcp.poller-configuration.xml (Polling-Configuration for active sensor monitoring)


The configuration files are only exceprts. The relevant sections must be inserted in the existing OpenNMS configuration. The following figures show you the corresponding points.
