Network/System monitoring using OpenNMS at City of Portland

Session track:

The City of Portland has recently implemented open source network and system monitoring using OpenNMS. Currently this is deployed for a City operated network serving external customer agencies including schools and government. OpenNMS was successfully deployed with some customization to allow customers to see web pages of traffic statistics for their network links only. City network staff have full access to all OpenNMS data and functionality. The City is planning to expand the deployment of OpenNMS to monitor network and  servers on the City’s production business networks. This session will focus on the challenges and decisions leading to the selection of OpenNMS, as well as an overview of the implementation to date.
