I got to thinking today about how little insight we have in our network at the moment. At one point we operated a plethora of different tools that gave a lot of redundant info scattered in various places, and now it seems like they haven’t been maintained so we have almost no insight into our network.
I got to thinking about it, and I like what OpenNMS offers, combined with the hardware information available in HP Systems Insight Manager. Unfortunately neither are currently set up for automatic information and alerting in our environment.
I recently had my wisdom teeth removed, so I was out for awhile. As a result, it feels like I don’t have any work on my plate after clearing everything up before I left for sick leave. Once I’m finished with my plan for deploying the Kraken, I think I’ll jump on an implementation and investigation of this.
