OMD - The Open Monitoring Distribution for armhf (ARMv7)

OMD is a great monitoring system but unfortunately there are no ARM packages available - So we built our own!

This package is based on the vanilla sources for the official releases which can be downloaded here.

It requires at least an ARMv7 CPU and will not run on the Raspberry Pi (which is ARMv6).
Banana Pi and many, many other ARM SoC boards will work fine.

We had to modify some things to successfully build on armhf/Bananian:

  • increase timeout in packages/perl-modules/src/lib/
  • remove 'modbus' check (x86 binary)
  • recompile 'waitmax' for armhf (x86 binary)
  • replace 'mongo' and 'mongod' (x86 binaries). Binary taken from the Debian packages (mongodb-clients and mongodb-server)
  • replace 'wkhtmltopdf' (x86 binary). Binary taken from the Debian 'wkhtmltopdf' package
  • added 'apache2-mpm-prefork' and 'wkhtmltopdf' to the dependencies
