OpenNMS is rock solid, but it's Tomcat/Java powered... would it
well with OpenJDK? Is Fedora open to using Sun's JDK? Also, although
it's gotten a lot better (more configuration done via the UI), the XML
based config files are seriously annoying. :)
It should work Just fine - it'd be seriously better than any of the
PHP driven horrors I've dealt with, and Java is officially a Good Guy.
XML config files, meh. At least they can be programattically created
and maintained by puppet etc. I work with XML from beyond Euclidean
space every day and I remain sane-ish. Dealing with huge BIND rigs has
taken the shine off apparently 'readable' non-XML config files.
It's certainly worth a try, and as I say, the OpenNMS guys have shown
willing to throw their hat into the fray.
