Stupid me: Forgot to uncomment include-range in configuration file discovery-configuration.xml

    This is a stupid story of mine, hope that you folks won't bump
into the same situation......

    Just did a clean install on Fedora 10, according to the installation guide:
http://www.opennms.org/documentation/installguide.html

    At the end I just modified the ip range in discovery-configuration.xml.

    I can log on to http://localhost:8980/opennms/

    BUT everything there is ZERO, and nothing had been discovered.

    I quickly dug through $OPENNMS_HOME/logs/ , and noticed the below
errors and warnings:

dhcpd.log:
ERROR [OpenNMS.Dhcpd] Dhcpd: I/O exception occured processing incomming request

rtc.log:
WARN  [RTC Updater Pool-fiber3] DataSender: DataSender:  Unable to send category

output.log:
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.mortbay.log).

    But these are actually minor issues, it had NOTHING to do with my
stupid error:
I forgot to UNCOMMENT include-range in configuration file
discovery-configuration.xml:

<discovery-configuration threads="1" packets-per-second="1"

Hello OpenNMSers
 
We have discovered something you may want to watch for.
 
Opennms 1.6.2 on Ubuntu (for what it matters)
 
On Cisco 3550 switches, running 12.2(44)SE1 the standard Opennms http service polling will kick off a memory leak in these switches.
 
This is resolved with se2 and higher (se6 is out now)
 
On a switch with 30+ mb ram...it took about 3 days to kick off the memory leak to where HTTP, HTTPS, Telnet and SSH failed. The switch still runs...but the memory pool shows full (steady decrease from point of monitoring)
 
 
This article talks about the http core services memory leak fixed first in SE2
 
 
We found this in an installation with 56 switches and every one of these 3550s (eight of them) with 12.2(44) SE1 leaked out. Older and newer switches all were fine.
 
Friendly heads up for all the help I've gotten from this site.
 
 
Thanks

Cisco Update: Talked with them this morning.

Tel: 715-842-7665
Fax: 715-842-7620
Hello OpenNMSers...

After talking with Cisco this morning, and explaining our situation and
findings...this issue is not confined just the 3550 switches...it is all
Cisco catalyst switches with the 12.2(44)se1 revision IOS that are
affected. We were just lucky enough to have all 3550s in the environment
we caught this in.

Turns out the rest of the series switches, 2900's and such are affected
as well since they all use the same IOS.

Cisco also confirmed that polling of the http interface like opennms
does would aggravate this leak.

Tarus posted that turning off the http management would be a workaround,
and Cisco this morning confirmed that also, as well as upgrading the IOS
to se2 or better.

Thanks you all for your time and attention.

I attached  a bmp screen shot of the memory pool from one of the
affected switches so you all can see the steady leak from the point
monitoring was turned on.

Happy monitoring!!

Is there a convenient database-y way to disable http monitors on all 
router and switch interfaces?

I had to turn it off by creating a different package in
poller-configuration.xml, filtering the switch ranges out of the
original package with an exclude statement, adding the switch ranges
into the new package by altering the include statement, and removing
http as a service from that new package.

Restart opennms and all was well.

Sure.

update ifservices set status='N' where serviceid in (select serviceid  
from service where servicename = 'HTTP') and nodeid in (select nodeid  
from node where [insert node criteria here]);

then restart

Hello.

I attempt to build 1.7.2 (I have need of SVG in Mozilla) and I'm
