I’m here to get some information and if it’s worth to try Foreman for my requirements.
Since Foreman has this datacenter plugin I was thinking about to use Foreman as documentation tool.
But it would be really cool to feed our monitoring with definitions which could be (hopefully) provided by Foreman.
We are using OpenNMS and a node definition looks like this:
<node foreign-id="HOSTNAME" node-label="NODE-LABEL"> <interface ip-addr="IPADDRESS" snmp-primary="P"> <monitored-service service-name="SNMP"/> <monitored-service service-name="ICMP"/> <monitored-service service-name="SSH"/> </interface> <category name="CATEGORY1"/> <category name="CATERORY2"/> <asset name="address1" value="STREET"/> <asset name="zip" value="ZIP"/> </node>
The really important part is, to assign services on IP interfaces. Also different assets and categories are required which should be mapped on a node.
Since you are more experienced using Foreman, I would like to get some feedback if this logic can be handled by Foreman.
Thanks in advance!
