 I agree, that wasn't a very good description of the package. Sorry.
 How about this one?

 OpenNMS is a highly-customizable network management platform. It
 provides three main functional areas:
  * Service Polling: the system monitors services on the network and
 reports on their "service level".
  * Performance: data is collected from the remote systems via SNMP in
 order to measure the performance of the network.
  * Event Management and Notifications: OpenNMS includes a robust
 notification system, including escalations, that can be generated by
 network events.
