Manually Connect Nodes together in Topology View?


#1

I have junior network engineers and I really need a good way to show that Node-A is connected to Node-B when elinkd doesn’t identify the links. I’ve googled, bing, and whatever else, but can’t find a way to do it clearly…I’ve seen some vague references to rest and actually modifying the DB, ugh.

This really seems like the one feature sorely needed in OpenNMS.

Any info on how to create manual links that show up in topology view?

Have you seen the GraphML topology provider? Here is a working sample which I’ve used for some demos for conferences: https://github.com/opennms-forge/opennms-demo/blob/994db89f1aeee9e5433fdbcde55da97148c469b4/setup/topology.xml

Hope this helps
