This document relates to opCharts-3, opConfig-3 and opEvents-3. We are currently in the process updating this to reflect our next generation of products using NMIS9
|Table of Contents|
A number of Opmantek products use a common node configuration infrastructure, which supports standard, product-specific and custom node attributes. This page describes both the core properties and outlines the product-specific ones.
For the new product generation, opEvents and opConfig use the same collection where NMIS 9 saves this data. The properties shown in italic are not directly interpreted by the applications and are completely optional.
|uuid||A unique identifier of the node|
The internal name of the node. This is used for identifying and displaying the node, not for communication with the node!
|cluster_id||The identifier for the server. Indicates that this is a local node when is the same that the cluster_id specified in the NMIS 9 config file.|
The DNS name, unqualified host name or main IP address for this node. Using a fully qualified DNS host name is recommended.
A list containing any secondary IP addresses that should also be associated with this node.
The (single) group that this node belongs to, which is used to control what nodes a user is allowed to see.
Free-form notes for a node, which are shown on the relevant context pages. (optional)
|configuration.comments||A list of originator- and time-tagged comments for this node. (optional, supported in opEvents 2.0 and newer)|
