About NMIS

NMIS (Network Management Information System) by Opmantek is an open-source software designed to help businesses handle the administration of various computer networks on a unified platform. It enables network engineers to conduct fault analysis, monitor IT systems’ performances, and gain insights into network statuses.

It offers a host of features including configuration management, automated alerts, escalation management, reporting, distributed monitoring, and more. Using the integrated business rules engine, IT professionals can classify events as per business requirements, create custom operational workflows, and automate event remediation operations. NMIS also allows IT teams to streamline the baselining processes by monitoring the system’s availability, response time, and performance and automatically comparing current performance to a historical metric.

NMIS facilitates integration with various helpdesk, IT management, and other third-party systems such as ServiceNow, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Zendesk, and more. It lets organizations create live graphs of system interface, CPU, or memory statistics, design escalation policies based on device groups, and store DNS and host records in a centralized repository.

Multitenanted Network Monitoring and management sytem that scales from a small IT provider to a big Enterprise/Carrier Organization.

Pros

Provide a total monitoring and insights into network infrastructure on a single pan of glass. The performance and the customization is second to none.

Cons

Nothing major I spotted during my experience.

NMIS for the win

NMIS is open-source, with a complete wiki and active community support, and has been around for many years. Has proven to be a very valuable tool for managing a large group of servers proactively.

Pros

I like that it's agentless, and when you do need support you get quickly connected to engineers, not jumping through hoops and waiting. We run NMIS on linux, for the open source advantage. We also use Opmantek Open Audit for inventory, it's possible to run both Open Audit and NMIS on the same system easily with the appliance

Cons

System is very flexible and customizable, in not always simple ways. But the outstanding documentation makes any learning curve involved easier.

It has been an eye-opening and a learning experience. We continue to learn more and more about our network with insights we have never had before. We have been able to use the data provided and collected to drive home several large projects that upon completion have improved our network stability by leaps and bound. We continue to find new and useful ways to implement and integrate the OMK platform into many of our other tools and practices. I could not be more excited about what comes next!

Pros

NMIS is hands down one of the best data collection monitoring suites we have ever used. The data and enriched alerting it provides is exactly what we were looking for to make data-driven network decisions for upgrade and growth. It has set us on the path from reactive to proactive!

Cons

This is both a con and a pro. This software is not an easy install and gets going product. As part of implmentation, you must really outline your practice and process as well as goals that you want to achieve. Also as you onboard new devices, the process of modeling them to collect the data you want is time-consuming. The average user will not be able to maintain and work on the back end of this software, but because of its complexity, you gain more control than you have ever had before.

The software itself is great and the support is outstanding. We were able to deploy the system quickly and easily. When we've had issues, we were able to get directly with the engineers at Opmantek and get our problem resolved quickly and efficiently. We've worked with the support team and learned to create custom models so we can monitor every device on the network. As the administrator of the system, I pretty much never have to say "no" when I am asked "Can it do this?". The documentation is intuitive and complete as well. With NMIS and Opmantek we have a true partner that we can rely on to make sure we are on top of any issues on our network and have good data and analytics to make sure our customers get top-notch service.

Pros

The software is flexible and while most things we needed were available out of the box, we were also able to easily extend functionality to cover the things that weren't. The software scales well and we have grown to scale out to 10x our initial deployment as far as node count. The system is entirely Linux-based and happily runs on the well-supported open source distributions. We have the option of using a preconfigured virtual appliance or installing on our standard Linux distribution. Management can be done through the GUI and/or command line enabling scripting of many aspects of system administration

Cons

This NMIS8 interface we started with was a bit stale, but this was greatly improved with NMIS9.

We monitor our remote IOT devices, making sure they are up and running properly. Adjusting NMIS' polling policy allowed us to do this without blowing out our data budget. It also keeps us confident that our online portals are up and running for our customers to use.

Pros

NMIS tells us when things aren't working so we can go and fix them, this means we can fix the problems before our customers know they are happening and before any data is lost. We have integrated NMIS with our saltstack configuration management tool so new nodes are automatically created with the correct settings when we deploy them. Customising the threshold settings and adjusting the escalation policy allows us to ensure we do not receive too many notifications which means we actually pay attention to the ones that come though.

Cons

I would appreciate having a docker image, a VM image is nice but not useful for me. Installing the software on our server is still very easy but I would prefer using docker. In general, understanding how the pieces of configuration worked together took a while, a diagram for understanding this would have been nice, it was worth figuring out.
