LibreNMS not updating Oxidized nodes list with new nodes

Hi Guys,

I’m working on integrating Oxidized with LibreNMS.
My setup is a separate VM for LibreNMS, and a separate VM for Oxidized.
For the most part, things are working. My LibreNMS shows the configs/versions of the switches/routers I added (both Cisco and Mikrotik).
However, for the test purposes, I used CSV Input in Oxidized, where I add my switches/routers to router.db file.

Now i’m trying to get LibreNMS updates Oxidized node list whenever a new machine is added, but so far no sucess.

Running connectivity test seems to work. See below :

curl -H 'X-Auth-Token: xxxxxx13f2252f4ce4d68bxxxxxx' http://librenms.MY.DOMAIN/api/v0/oxidized

{
    "hostname": "localhost",
    "os": "linux",
    "ip": "127.0.0.1",
    "group": "true"
},
{
    "hostname": "artemis.MY.DOMAIN",
    "os": "ios",
    "ip": "xx.xx.xx.xx",
    "group": "true"
},
{
    "hostname": "aiolos.MY.DOMAIN",
    "os": "ios",
    "ip": "xx.xx.xx.xx",
    "group": "true"
},

Below is my Oxidized conf:

   gpg: false
model_map:
   juniper: junos
  cisco: ios
  mikrotik: routeros

If I omit the the CSV source, Oxidized service won’t run.

I’m not sure where I have a mistake.
Any advice please ?

Thanks

Below is the service failure when the CSV source is omitted:

Do you mean when you add a device in LibreNMS you want it to appear in your Oxidized install? If so you need to use LibreNMS as the source of truth for Oxidized. Our docs show how.

Hi Iaf,

I do actually use LibreNMS as the source. Kindly see my Oxidized config above.
However, Now i think I figured out what was the issue:

I added ip: ip in the oxidized config:

map:
        name: hostname
        model: os
        ip: ip

Oxidized now started pulling all switches/routers that are added in LibreNMS.

Fingers crossed ! let’s see when it finishes it cycle

Ok it seems that Oxidized now has retrieved all the devices from LibreNMS and backed them up.

However, I hit another issue. for some reason the device Config TAB disappeared from LibreNMS. I had it earlier when I used CSV file source in Oxidized, i.e. when I click on a router/switch in LibreNMS, it showed a tab for config and when I click on that tab, I see that router’s/switche’s backed up configuration.

Now that tab disappeared now !

Below is my LibreNMS config part for Oxidized:

 # Enable Oxidized
$config['oxidized']['enabled']         = true;
$config['oxidized']['url']             = 'http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8888';
$config['oxidized']['features']['versioning'] = true;
$config['oxidized']['reload_nodes'] = true;
#$config['oxidized']['ignore_types'] = array('server','power','storage');
#$config['oxidized']['ignore_os'] = array('linux','windows');

Please see attached screen shots from Oxidized and LibreNMS. As you can see, there is no Config tab in the GUI switch’s page.
