OpenNMS in Windows - Set Threshold

Hi All,

I have installed openNMS in windows 10 computer and wanted to set threshold of windows server with email notification if it goes high. I have googled a lot but failed to find help for windows OS.

Does anybody can help me, how to set threshold of windows server (IBM Server) for CPU, Memory etc. Is there any step by step guide to set threshold for windows server using openNMS?

I do have only windows environment in my company.

Hi.

Thank you for your kind reply.

I have watched this video before and this is only for hard disk usage that is already given in openNMS. But how can i set the threshold for memory, CPU process, Hardware event?

See this. It will explain you how to enable CPU utilization.

Btw. We have a great experience with Zabbix. It looks much more friendly than OpenNMS.

HERE is documentation for OpenNMS. Read section/chapter eight about notifications.

I got your point. I can see everything for local node only in Web GUI of openNMS. I can see other nodes of the network but can't see their CPU, Memory etc. I have setup correct SNMP string for all but it is not displaying anything and getting an error of SNDP data collection failed on the interface.

Its so strange. If you can help me with this...

How have you set timeouts for SNMP?

Hello ThereSystem AdministratorCommented:
For SNMP data collection, the following files must be configured correctly:

snmp-config.xml
For each interface, a valid community string must exist in this file.
datacollection-config.xml
Each package in the collectd configuration file points to an snmp-collection definition in this file. Each snmp-collection defines what information to collect via SNMP, and it is pretty powerful as far as configuration goes. The default configuration is fairly complete for basic purposes, and will probably not require much changing initially.

Now your server is monitored, but funny enough you can not even find basic information like CPU, Memory, network usage, etc. The reason is your server have not yet being configured to provide such information to OpenNMS.
Refer to this article... see a section Collect SNMP data.
