Performance - Get node counter through a manager

0 votes

In my project, I collect performance counter (metrics) of multiple nodes from a manager.

Is it possible in OpenNMS to re-affect these counters to the correct node instead having them visible under the manager node from which we get the information?

I have seen (and tested) that it is possible to get the data from the manager and then copy/paste the rrd data generated based on the collected data on the manager under a rrd directory corresponding to the real node from which the counter come from (a symbolinc link should work also). Following this copy past, I am able to visualize graph based on these counter on this node.

Is there any other method to reaffect counter from a manager to its real node?


Thanks in advance

Until we move to another data store (see NewTS project), sym links are the only way I've seen something like that done.

If it is possible, I would work toward collecting the counters natively from the OpenNMS server.
