The LoopDetector gives Meridian users the ability to force a service onto an interface during service detection. You can use the LoopDetector to ensure a specific service is added to all nodes without performing a check against the node. This type of detector is primarily used along with passive service monitoring.
First, add a detector for the new service to the desired foreign-source definition. Use the LOOP class:
Here’s how the above looks in the requisition XML:
<detector name="PCR" class="org.opennms.netmgt.provision.detector.loop.LoopDetector"> <parameter key="ipMatch" value="169.254.*.*"/> </detector>
This configuration will cause the "PCR" service to be detected (without any actual network-based scanning happening) on any interface with an IP address starting with "169.254".
