snmp monitor help for openmanage

Jump to solution

trying to monitor physical drives using snmp monitor and the return status 4 has duplicate meaning- in some cases its firmware in need of an upgrade- we only want to alert on non-firmware issues.

was using both the built in snmp monitor and a custome script that basically runs the following command to get return values - want to know how to combine the two into one monitor or if there is a better way. thanks

 

snmpwalk -v2c -c mcomsnmp mdc2pr003 1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10893.1.20.130.4.1.23

Hi ,

 

 

I have created SNMP monitors for one of the customer . There can be two ways you can monitor SNMP traps:

 

1) if you have correct OIDs to be monitored. Make sure port 161 and 162 are opened for SNMP.

2) Other way can be using SNMP by MIB . if you have MIB file for your network device.

 

Let me know if this help to you. I can share more details with you

 

 

Regards,

Ravi

Hi,

 

The problem I see is that your command does snmp WALK, while monitor only does GET. I may not be understanding correctly what your script does, your monitor can also get that Object ID only.

thanks for the response. Do you know if anyone is monitoring snmp devices using a different method than the snmpwalk command I posted? how do you manage devices for openmanage in your environment? I appreciate any suggestions or information offered -

Thanks

I did my setup using above two methods mentioned in my last post.

 

like as if you want to measure free disk space for a device. it would have an OID associated with it. so menion the serv er name on which disk space need to be checked and then correct OID and set the thresholds accordingly .

 

I think it would help you else I can explain you more also. Feel free to write me on ravisingla077@gmail.com

Ravi
