NNMi Northbound Interface

Network Node Manager i Software (NNMi) provides the NNMi northbound interface for forwarding NNMi incidents to any application that can receive SNMPv2c traps. For each NNMi management server, you can implement the NNMi northbound interface to multiple northbound applications, each configured separately.

NNMi includes support for using the NNMi northbound interface to integrate with the following products:

  • The Operations Management functionality of the  Business Service Management (BSM) platform.
  • The Operations Manager active messages browser.
  • IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus.
  • ArcSight Logger

To integrate with a different northbound application, follow the instructions in this chapter.

Note Do not use the northbound interface when integration with OM is already established by using the NNMi - OM Integration form.
