The Vigilo GUI graphic interface

Vigilo GUI allows real-time viewing of alarms and monitoring of performance indicators.

Commercial modules are available for the NMS version. They provide many additional features such as:

  • Role and user management;
  • Advanced ticket system;
  • Secure authentication by LDAP and SSO server.

Vigilo NMS manages two types of information: information on detected incidents and performance indicators concerning the items monitored. The incident information is stored in a relational database. The performance indicators are stored in RRD rotary bases.

The Vigilo NMS graphical interface connects to these databases and retrieves details of incidents and performance indicators in order to display them. These details are updated periodically and automatically. The refresh period is configurable.

Vigilo GUI menus

The navigation menu is displayed in the upper left corner of the graphical interface. The order in which the sections are displayed can be specified in the configuration file / etc / prewikka / conf.d / menuvigiconf.yml .

The sections of the navigation menu are grouped into five default entries ( ALARM , ANALYSE , ARCHIVE , ADMIN and ? . By clicking on one of these menus, the associated sections appear.


The alarm tank allows you to consult in real time the faults and malfunctions detected on the supervised fleet.

Alarm board

Each row of the central table represents a correlated Alarm corresponding to an incident detected by Vigilo NMS.

The following information is detailed :

  • A column I , indicating the initial status of the incident
  • A column W , indicating the worst status of the incident
  • Column C , indicating the current status of the incident
  • The date of the last occurrence of the incident

Access to detailed information of an alarm

By clicking on the date of last occurrence at the start of the alarm line (state of the supervised element on which the incident occurred), a modal window containing more details appears.

In the first third of this dialog, the elements found in the row of the table are visible.

The second third gives access to the detailed history of this event. There is a history of state changes on the element responsible for the incident.

Finally, the last tier consists of events hidden for this event. This is the list of raw alarms considered as consequences of the incident.


The Alarms tab brings together the graphs that allow you to see the different categories of alarms generated by Vigilo NMS. This allows operators to see which categories of alarms are the most generated.
