HP NNMi

< appboard | 2.4 | builder | data sources | third party

The HP NNMi adapter retrieves information about nodes and incidents from the HP Network Node Manager (NNMi) application.


1. Data Source Configuration

1.1. Configure Connection Settings

The table below details the settings you can configure for a HP NNMi Data Source:

Name Description
cacheTimeout How long the cache manager will keep a response before re-querying the data source.
url The base URL of NNM, which should be in the form of "<protocol>://<host>[:port]/" (http://nnm.test.com:8080/ in this example). The base URL can be tested by entering it in a browser and appending "/IncidentBeanService/IncidentBean?wsdl", which should return an XML file describing the Incident web service.
httpAuthUsername User name credential used to connect to HP NNMi.
httpAuthPassword User password credential used to connect to HP NNMi.

1.2. Entities

A successful connection will result in the creation of two data source entities: Nodes and Incidents.

Entity Description
Nodes The Nodes entity contains a list of nodes from NNM. This is consistent with the nodes from the Inventory Workspace of the NNM web interface.
Incidents The Incidents entity contains all incidents from NNM. This is consistent with All Incidents from the Incident Browsing Workspace of the NNM web interface.
