Network Inventory

Inventory refers to the devices and entities in your network that OpenNMS Cloud/Lōkahi has identified through the discovery process. OpenNMS displays these nodes on the Network Inventory page under the following categories:

  • Monitored Nodes: Discovered nodes that OpenNMS is monitoring.

  • Unmonitored Nodes: Discovered nodes that are not yet tagged for monitoring. They did not match any of the criteria in any monitoring policy, including the default one.

  • Detected Nodes: Nodes identified through an indirect way like via flow. You can choose to monitor the node through a monitoring policy, or ignore it.

Inventory management involves the following:

  • Examining unmonitored and detected nodes to determine if you want to monitor them.

  • Tagging nodes so that they are monitored.

  • Updating or creating monitoring policies to discover additional network nodes.

  • Removing nodes you do not want to monitor from the monitored nodes list.
