Ping Latency in NNM for Non-SNMP devices

Hi all,

I'd like to threshold latency between our NNM host and a non-snmp node. i thought it would be as simple as creating a node group for the non-snmp device and configuring ICMP response time threshold in Monitoring Configuration>Node Settings. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.

All my searching has pointed to needing IPSLA set up or Ping Latency Pairs but these both require a managed snmp device. In Sitescope it was as simple as a deploying a ping monitor and setting a threshold.

Am i missing a trick here?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Ping Latency in NNM for Non-SNMP devices

Hi, 

yes, NNMi can't monitor non-SNMP nodes response time.

network latency specifics is that it occurs in both directions, can be monitored one-way from source to destination (SD) and opposite DS (what's why SNMP and iPSLA are needed) . Both way latency is round-trip-time (RTT). In case RTT is good for you I'd suggest iRA (part of  iSPI QA). You can run iRA  ICMP probes from NNMi server to non-snmp nodes and get RTTmetric.

regards,
Gedas

P.S.  you might want to resister Enhancement request for NNMi to enable collection or ICMP response time of non-snmp nodes.

You can have iSPI Performance Metrics as an option,
