The integration between Micro Focus Network Node Manager i (NNMi) and Micro Focus Operations Bridge Reporter (OBR) enables the transfer of the node and interface data from NNMi to OBR for historical reporting and analysis. This integration helps you view reports on network performance from OBR's report console.
From OBR 10.0, OBR offers a direct ETL integration with NNMi by consuming the .csv files of the network performance metrics related to Component and Interface Health. Also, OBR queries the NPS database to retrieve metric on components that have been created or changed.
There are two methods of extracting data from NNMi to OBR:
1) Micro Focus Network Node Manager i (NNMi) pushes CSV to Micro Focus Operations Bridge Reporter (OBR) - Direct integration.
2) Micro Focus Network Node Manager i (NNMi) pushes CSV to Network Performance Server (NPS) and OBR queries the NPS database to retrieve metric on components that have been created or changed.
You must revisit the hardware requirements, if you choose Direct integration.
For more information, see OBR Performance Sizing and Tuning section.
Based on your requirement, OBR recommends you to install either the Network Performance Content Pack (NPS based content pack) or Network Component Health/Network Interface Health Content Packs (Direct Integration content packs). Installing both Network Performance Content Pack and Network Component Health/Network Interface Health Content Packs may lead to performance issues due to redundant data.

|Comments: NNMi Direct Integration, when NNMi is installed on Windows and OBR is installed on Linux is not supported. NNMi Direct Integration is not supported for Large Deployments. NNMi iSPI Performance for Metrics integration is supported irrespective of the Operating system of NNMi, OBR and NNMi iSPI Performance for Metrics.|
