Technology

  • SNMP

OpenNMS Components

  • Datacollection
  • Graphing
  • Pollerd
  • Threshd

Getting Started

In past I’ve already created a datacollection config based on Airmax6. I’d like to improve it and validate it against Ubiquiti’s Airmax8 firmware.
I’ve prepared a test environment with ~30 devices. Different models and firmware version are available. This should be enough to test.

Summary

  • Datacollection and graph definitions are created, tested and uploaded to Github
  • Also a Grafana board was created: https://grafana.com/dashboards/6498
  • I’ve added an example threshold to identify signal strength fluctuations
  • Also I’ve added a poller configuration to check DFS status
