Opsview Mobile for Android

Introduction

Opsview Mobile for Android is a native mobile application for the Android platform that gives you on-the-go access to live monitoring data from your Opsview system. It uses the Opsview REST API for

Pre-requisites

  • A device running the Android operating system, version 2.1 or later (2.2 for “install to SD card” support)
  • Opsview 3.13.0 or later

Views

The following views are available within the application.

Settings

When you open the application for the first time, the Settings view is shown and you will be able to enter the settings for your Opsview system. To return to the Settings at any time, navigate to the Hostgroup Hierarchy view, press 'Menu' and select 'Settings'.

  • API URL - The URL you use to access your Opsview system. Examples might be http://opsview.mycompany.com/ or https://www.mycompany.com/opsview
  • Opsview Username - The username you use when logging into Opsview (or the account you wish to use with Opsview Mobile, if different)
  • Opsview Password - The password associated with the above username
  • Request Timeout - The length of time the application should wait for a response from Opsview before giving up. The default of 5 seconds should typically be sufficient, but you may need to increase this value if you often use the application over a slow link (e.g. GPRS) or experience frequent timeout messages.

Hostgroup Hierarchy

This is the default view when opening the application, once you have configured your settings.

The viewports are sorted by severity ('highest' state first), and then alphabetically. Any viewports in an error state but with all hosts/services handled will show a green/purple tick next to their name.

To refresh this view, press 'Menu' and then select 'Refresh'.

To exit this view, press 'Back'.
