Welcome to the NMIS (Network Management Information System), community page! NMIS is open source network management software which was first released in 1999, it is a complete network management system which assists with fault, performance and configuration management, providing performance graphs and threshold alerting as well as highly granular notification policies with many types of notification methods. You can download NMIS from here.
Have you just downloaded NMIS (VM or source)? See the NMIS v8 Documentation section information to get you started and help you configure NMIS. If you are looking for information and documentation for one of our modules see the specific Module links below. Lastly, if you have just downloaded the VM Bundle with NMIS which includes all of our modules check out the Getting Started - Virtual Appliance Bundle & NMIS 8 document to get you going.
More information about Opmantek and our products and services available on our website.
We're actively working on the next generation of NMIS and late beta releases are now available. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to experiment with NMIS 9. Overall NMIS9 works the same as NMIS8, but faster and smoother with less disk IO, to make this happen, there are some ducks feet moving rapidly under the water, see those differences here.
