HP NNMi 10 Administrator ManualOpen in a New Window

Good Day Experts!

I was wondering if you can give me an pdf resource or e-book of the whole NNMi 10 manual with all the steps to configure this and that. I need this due to the lack of training I received (newbie here with less than 1 year of using the app) and since NNMi is a great tool for monitoring, I cannot maximize the software as much as I wanted to.

Please help me on this.

Many Thanks!

Custom Poller PoliciesOpen in a New Window

Hi People!

About the configuration of custom poller, How can I know which policies exist in NNMi by default.

NB: I faced difficulties in configuring custom poller because I don't have prerequisites in MIB expressions and the signification of each MIB variable. I want to know if the default custom poller policies (if any) are sufficient for monitoring my network.

Pleaase Help!  


Upload MIB Files from the ConsoleOpen in a New Window


Can somebody tell me how to upload MIB files from my desktop ?

NNMi indicate that additional MIBs can be uploaded into the user MIB directory (/var/opt/OV/shared/nnm/user-snmp-mibs/). I don't want to upload from the vendor's website. I have a file in my desktop in which I've collected all the MIBs I need to upload.  What should I do?

Looking forward your suggestions 

best regards,


Availability monitoring with SNMPOpen in a New Window

Hello Experts,


Good Morning!!


Client is having 100 devices in their environment and they are not ready to allow or enable ICMP for 40 devices. In such case how NNMi will react for Node Up/Down in absence of ICMP. Will SNMP help us in that scenario and there is no need of ICMP generally too..?

NPS - Not able to install on RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.x due to missing librariesOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

I'm trying to install NPS on RedHat Enterprise Linux Server 7.x.
Required libs are manually instaled, but still some issues related to this.
The installation fails saying there are missing libraries, see below:

[root@nnm002 tmp]# more PerfSPI_AppCheckReqdLibs.sh.txt
Thu 4 May 11:07:21 UTC 2017
OS: Linux
INFO: Run the following command(s), or otherwise install or update the identified libraries before re-running the installer
INFO: #yum install compat-libstdc++-296.i686 openmotif.i686 openmotif.x86_64
FATAL ERROR: (Logfile /var/tmp/PerfSPI_AppCheckReqdLibs.sh.txt)

Tried to run the yum install on the missing libs, got the following:

[root@nnm002 tmp]# yum install compat-libstdc++-296.i686 openmotif.i686 openmotif.x86_64
Loaded plugins: product-id, rhnplugin, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager
This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or Red Hat Satellite.
No package compat-libstdc++-296.i686 available.
No package openmotif.i686 available.
No package openmotif.x86_64 available.
Error: Nothing to do

Have talked to the LINUX admin, and he says the libs are not available for Linux 7.

NNMi/NPS Reporting: how to display the queried data (not the calculatet min/max/average values)??Open in a New Window

Hello There,

we monitore the performance data with NNMi and NPS Server. The polling intervall is 5 minutes.


So when I query the reporting data at the NPS server- for example I query the memory utilization for the last two days and show the values aggregated in hours - I get different values for min/max/average... and that is normal. How I understand the min/max/average values in this case is:


Min value in one hour

Max value in one hour

Average in one hour


The strange thing (which I don't understand) is that when I choose to display 5 minutes values for the last two days at the NPS server I also get different values for max/min/average... but from my point of view it should be always the same, because the polling intervall is 5 minutes and if the display setting is set to 5 minutes I should the the queried data not average values or something like that.


Why does this happen?


And: how to display the queried data (not the calculatet min/max/average values)??


Kind regards

I Would like to know if anyone is monitoring Fortinet firewalls from NNMI. If yes, then are you guys monitoring the service of it? Like if its a VPN firewall then can we setup an alert for it so that network team will be alerted when the service goes down.

NNMi - Problems populating QA Probes from RNMs to the GNMOpen in a New Window


I'm running NNMi 10.10 for Win2K8 and installed iSPI for Metrics and QA.
The solution architecture content of one GNM and five RNMs.
QA is installed on the GNM and all RNMs.
QA GNM-RNM connection from the GNM to the RNM is configured and connected (configured in the QA configuration GUI).
On the RNMs QA probes are discovered and seen in the NNMi Workspace.

The issue is that these QA probes on the RNMs are not "populated" to the GNM and not visible in the QA Workspace on the GNM NNMi GUI.

Any suggestions what to check?
