Large-Scale Systems Management with OpenNMS
Large-scale systems management presents challenges that most tools just don't handle gracefully. Learn how OpenNMS, a 100% FLOSS platform designed to manage tens of thousands of nodes from a single instance, can help make the job suck less.
Plenty of Free Software tools exist for managing and monitoring Linux and similar systems, but the choices begin to narrow as the number of servers grows. Many platforms hit a performance wall or become unwieldy to configure beyond a few hundred nodes; they simply were not designed to scale beyond this point. Other platforms scale better but reserve the best features for those who pay for an "enterprise" version. This talk covers the system management capabilities of OpenNMS, a 100% Free Software framework for network, system, and application management that was designed from the outset to manage tens of thousands of nodes from a single instance.
