OpenNMS Clean Up

I want to create a Jira epic to address some of the inconsistencies in the usability of OpenNMS.

Here are some examples:

Change the performance metrics directory from $OPENNMS_HOME/share/rrd/snmp to $OPENNMS_HOME/share/rrd/performance (or data)

Change the name of datacollection-config.xml to snmp-datacollection-config.xml to better match the http, xml, wsman, etc. configuration files.

Change the name of snmp-graph.properties to performance-graph.properties, etc.

I can see this making a somewhat large hassle for folks during the upgrade, especially with “gotchas” around custom datacollection configuration, having to move the existing data around before restarting, etc.

Could the install -dis script be adapted to automate most of that transition?

That would be the idea.
