View a Minion Appliance in the OpenNMS UI

By default, the OpenNMS core instance automatically provisions the Minion as a node and monitors it with the Minion-Heartbeat service. As of Horizon 31.0.2+ and Meridian 2023, OpenNMS also monitors the Minion Appliance using SNMP.

Follow these steps to view the Minion Appliance in the OpenNMS UI:

  1. Log in to your OpenNMS instance.

  2. Click Info > Nodes in the top menu bar.

  3. Find the Minion whose details you want to view and click its name.

    You should see something similar to the following:

    Horizon UI showing Minion Appliance monitoring details; no contact or location configured

You can click any of the links in the Availability area (including SNMP) to view more details about the Minion Appliance.

See Change agent SNMP configuration for information on how to change the Minion Appliance’s configuration, including its location and contact information.
