LibreNMS is an autodiscovering PHP/MySQL/SNMP based network monitoring which includes support for a wide range of network hardware and operating systems including Cisco, Linux, FreeBSD, Juniper, Brocade, Foundry, HP and many more. LibreNMS is a community-based fork of Observium.
We intend LibreNMS to be a viable project and community that:
- encourages contribution,
- focuses on the needs of its users, and
- offers a welcoming, friendly environment for everyone.
The Debian Social Contract will be the basis of our priority system, and mutual respect is the basis of our behaviour towards others. For more about the culture we're trying to build, please read the Freenode philosophy, including guidelines for running an IRC channel and being a community catalyst.
You can participate in the project by:
- Talking to us on IRC (##librenms on Freenode) or Twitter.
- Joining the librenms-project mailing list.
- Improving the documentation.
- Cloning the repo and filing bug reports and pull requests on github. See CONTRIBUTING for more details.
You can try LibreNMS by downloading a VM image. Currently, a Ubuntu-based image is supplied and has been tested with VirtualBox.
Download the VirtualBox / VMWare image and open it then log in with credentials provided. Enter the following command:
You'll then need to find out the IP of your VM (
ifconfig | grep add) and
create a DNS entry for
librenms.example.com to point to that IP. You can
also edit your
/etc/hosts file with the following line:
$ip is the IP of your VM.
Add a new user by entering:
./adduser.php <username> <password> 10 <email>
replace , and with a username, password and your email address.
From there, just point your web browser
http://librenms.example.com/ and login with your new username and password.
