Hey there, i was looking at observium and on there i have the option to create a custom OID and set the discovery to Auto so devices that support sending that metric automatically add this custom OID. I can’t seem to find the option in LibreNMS. Is this even possible or this just not implemented?
Kind regards, IQFX
This is not possible and not suitable for LibreNMS.
The goal is to implement an OID the proper way if it is of any use for more than 1 device. CustomOID is new and the core team monitors it, to avoid misuse.
That’s the “power” of LibreNMS. If everybody starts using custom OID, nobody will contribute, and we’ll end up with LibreNMS not supporting anything and everybody doing the same tasks over and over (like other monitoring tools).
