Ronny came up with a nifty little enhancement to the front page:
It adds a thresholds box under the outages box reflecting the status of unacknowledged threshold alarms. There is an icon reflecting whether the alarm is a high, low, relative or absolute threshold and a link via the node label to the alarm itself.
I added (with some help) a mouseover box that displays the log message when you mouse over the node label so you can see the details of the alarm.
We will be adding this to OpenNMS 1.10, but if you want it in 1.8 simply visit the enhancement page and patch the files. It doesn’t require a recompile or a restart.
