LibreOffice Power supply monitoring


I have been using an OpenNMS + Observium installation to watch our small company (and customers – perhaps 45 hosts) over the last year, and recently discovered LibreNMS. There are a few things that I like Observium performing, however, there are some things I don’t like about the software, and I am considering a permanent migration here.

Here is my Validate process:

[root@librenms librenms]# ./validate.php

Component Version
LibreNMS 1.64.1-15-g4b766b4f1
DB Schema 2020_04_06_001048_the_great_index_rename (165)
PHP 7.4.6
Python 3.6.8
MySQL 10.3.17-MariaDB
RRDTool 1.7.0

[OK] Composer Version: 1.10.7
[OK] Dependencies up-to-date.
[OK] Database connection successful
[OK] Database schema correct

  1. Observium detects my HP server power supplies just fine.

… LibreNMS doesn’t detect the power supply exists. Do I need to add MIB information somewhere? I did not need to do that with Observium.

  1. Is there a preferred way under RedHat / CentOS linux to get my system locations to show up properly? I have edited /etc/snnp/snmpd.conf numerous times in for syslocation, and restarted the service, and I just cannot win with the settings.
