IP interface Monitoring

Jump to solution

I have some switches that I am SNMP polling. I noticed in the IP Addresses Tab the IP's are not being polled even though

their  interface is SNMP polled.  Is this normal. I'm trying to understand the differences of polling the interfaces and the IP's of the interfaces.  Can someone tell me why the interface IPs aren't being polled.

 

Thanks,

 

John

Hi Jhon,

 


Enable IP Address Fault Polling” is an option to enable IP address polling per Interface Group, Node group or by default. This monitoring option is useful for devices that do not support SNMP. By default, this feature is enabled for the "Non- SNMP Devices" Node Group. More details you can find in NNMi 9.23 Online Help for Administrators (http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM00392942/binary/nnmi_help_administrators_9.23.zip).

Hi Jhon,

 


Could you select from Inventiory/IP addresses and open one that is not polled. Open menu Actions /Configuration Details/ Monitoring Settings and check the group where this IP address has inherited the ICMP polling options from.

 


Thanks and regards,

Hello

The results are:

Retrieved From Node Group Routers

I created another group to monitor these specific IBM devices. How do I remove these devices from the Routers Group.

I tried to do a remove from Group Membership and it bounced back not a member of.

 

Thanks

Hi Jhon,

 

 

The node group “Routers” uses Device filter to select members as on the next screenshot:

 

 

All devices that are at least in one of these three categories are included in the Node group “Routers”.

 

 

You could exclude node as a member of this group if you include a similar filter in Additional Filters tab as in the next example:

 

 

This filter will exclude all nodes with sysOids such as .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.1.896 or .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.1.1024. You could use any of the “Attributes” to exclude nodes, for example by hostnames or by management IP addresses. Not depending on the attribute you will use, I suggest you use “not in” list form.

Hello,

I added a filter to exclude the nodes from Routers and Switches group and created new Node group with following expression. When I look at the monitoring settings it goes to Default. Seems to not be picking up the new Group.

  • AND
    • mgmtIPAddress = 129.124.38.118
    • mgmtIPAddress = 129.124.38.119
    • mgmtIPAddress = 129.124.38.120
    • mgmtIPAddress = 129.124.38.124
    • mgmtIPAddress = 129.124.38.125

Suggestions? - John
