Display node name or system name rather than IPOpen in a New Window

Hi folks

In many NNMi displays, specifically Dashboard -> Component Performance, IPs (management addresses) are listed rather than host or system names. Is there a way to configure NNMi to display the host or system name rather than the management IP address? I suspect this is ultimately a DNS issue as many of the devices (routers, switches, etc) do not have forward/reverse DNS entries. 

Thanks for the help

"This is the enrichment that will be performed should this incident occur in the future"Open in a New Window


For many reasons I had to recently make a lot of enrichments, based on tenant, for our alarms.

I have used exclusively copy-paste for the payload filter values in the enrichment forms, however I got some very strange behaviour. For NodeDown and for a specific CustomPolledInstance I get only the default enrichment. Actions, executed for the same alarms work without a hitch with the same payload filters.

I get the message "This is the enrichment that will be performed should this incident occur in the future". The future never comes, as I am working on this issue for two weeks now.

When I get the enrichment report it shows something like this(sensitive information is omitted):

Enrichment performed for the default settings for the incident NodeDown.
The payload filter did not match. Enrichment will not be performed.
Payload Filter: (ciaValue like .*priority_4 AND ciaName = cia.tenant.name)

The payload filter did not match. Enrichment will not be performed.
Payload Filter: (ciaName = cia.tenant.name AND ciaValue like .*priority_3)

The payload filter did not match. Enrichment will not be performed.
Payload Filter: (ciaValue like .*priority_2 AND ciaName = cia.tenant.name)

Enrichment performed for the default settings for the incident NodeDown.
The payload filter which matched for the enrichment is: (ciaName = cia.tenant.name AND ciaValue like .*priority_1)
Note: This is the enrichment that will be performed should this incident occur in the future.
Severity: Critical
Priority: Top
Category: Fault
Family: Node
Correlation Nature: Root Cause

Name: cia.timeIncidentResolvedMs, Value: 1480398001242, Type: String
Name: cia.incidentDurationMs, Value: 383122, Type: String

I am using the 9.20 version, I know it is now obsolete, but we have a really stable installation and a lot of customization so I am reluctant to upgrade at this point.

Any thought will be appreciated on the issue.. Thanks in advance.

NNMi Northbound interface and BSM connectorOpen in a New Window

Hi Experts,

NNMi version: 10.10

NNMi is integrated with BSM 9.25

We need to configure Northbound interface integration for one of the 3rd party software and then send those traps to BSM

I have read the deployment guide on how to configure Northbound interface, but still I have few queries           

Please clarify if my understanding is correct

  • Firstly I should do the seed discovery of the 3rd party host from where the snmp traps are coming in order to proceed with northbound interface integration
  • Northbound interface is a generic terminology, when we mention the Northbound Interface Destinations as NNMi FQDN so traps will reach to NNMi and from here I need to forward it to BSM omi.
  • If I need to send the traps directly to BSM can I mention Northbound Interface destination other to BSM IP
  • BSM connector is also installed on NNMi machine and both BSM connector and northbound interface using port 5162 will there be any conflict, if yes then should I install BSM connector on separate machine

Please advice!


one-access traps not shown in incident viewOpen in a New Window


When we try to generate one-access device traps for IP SEC tunnel like,


we are not able to see in NNM console view, however tcpdump captures the traps are been arriving.

On tracing we see following error in trace file,

2016-11-23 12:21:40.057 WARNING [com.hp.ov.nms.trapd.MessageProcessor] (MessageProcessor) com.hp.ov.snmp.exceptions.SnmpException: Trap parsing failed. Trap does not have trap OID as varbind. Dropping trap from /

When I look at wireshark trace log, I am seeing OID been passed as varbind, but still not sure why the above error.

However we receive one more trap from CPE which is properly captured at NNM as in attached file.

Not sure where the problem lies, please to help.

sysUpTime @ MIB ExpressionOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

I am trying to build a MIB Expression for a type Counter MIB variable.

If I understood correctly, I have to divide the variable with sysUpTime * 0.01 in order to get rate and not the actual value of the counter. The funny thing is that i cannot select sysUpTime from the MIB Expression Editor. Instead I can only select sysUpTimeInstance as you can see in the picture attached. If I select this variable, the graph which uses the MIB Expression does not work.

Can you explain why this is happening and how i can select sysUpTime???

Thank you in advance,
