Intro to Observium

  • May 22, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Q


Observium is a PHP/MySQL-based network monitoring system  which collects data from devices using SNMP and presents it via a web interface. Observium doesn't seek to totally replace other Open Source projects such as Nagios or Cacti, but rather to supplement them with greater understanding of certain devices and technologies. For this reason it's common to see Observium deployed alongside Nagios or Mon to provide alerting and Cacti to provide customized graphing of arbitrary metrics. Learn how you can use Observium to expand network visibility, streamline planning, and improve reliability.


Omar Alva is a Linux/Unix Administrator and Sr Advisor at Dell for more than 5 years, experienced with different Unix/Linux flavors such as AIX, Solaris, Ubuntu, Red Hat and SuSE.   He is an Open Source Evangelist and Linux geek, who gives lectures in both the US and Mexico just for fun.

6080 Center Drive Suite 925

Plentiful parking is available at the Howard Hughes Promenade across the street for a $3. Avoid the parking structure behind 6080 Center Drive - it's crazy expensive.


There is a security desk in the lobby, they will need to let you in the elevator to Q’s office in suite 925
