Large, distributed networks can be difficult to reach and monitor from a central location, with challenges like firewalls, network address translation (NAT) traversal, overlapping IP address ranges, and locked-down environments. The OpenNMS Minion component extends the reach of Horizon/Meridian, so you can monitor systems and networks that would otherwise be inaccessible, for optimal visibility into every [...]

When you want to store large amounts of non-aggregated data (such as performance metrics), the round robin database (RRDtool) in OpenNMS may not be enough. OpenNMS provides a time-series data store (Newts) that works with Apache Cassandra or ScyllaDB to group metrics for more efficient storage and retrieval. It removes aggregation as a bottleneck to storage, [...]
