I recently ran into some issues where Observium CE (version 0.16.10.8128) was not updating the geolocation of devices correctly and this was making the maps on the landing page look bad by show devices in the middle of the ocean.
Here’s how I fixed it.
I recently moved to Observium for my device and basic network monitoring, one of the things about running Observium that is, well, love it or hate it, is that there are a lot of updates to the software. And if you want to keep things up to date, you will probably want to perform updates quite frequently.
I created some scripts that help me simplify the update and upgrade process, when I choose to do updates (usually once or twice a month, assuming there are features that I want to check out).
I recently made the move from basic MRTG graphing for some of my networked equipment to Observium, and I’m quite happy that I did.
