SNMP

Allows monitoring of systems that expose information through the SNMP protocol.


Local/Remote Modes

The agent supports both local and remote modes.


Supported Versions

The agent can connect to systems supporting SNMP v1, v2c and v3 protocols.


Configuration

The following configuration options are available for SNMP v1 and v2c:
  • Path to other MIBs: IxoraRMS comes with a set of precompiled MIBs that describe the structure of most commonly encountered SNMP databases. This can be extended by specifying here the path to additional MIB files in ASN.1 format. All subfolders of this path will be searched, and all files found will be included.
  • Port: port tu use when connecting to the host.
  • Network timeout: timeout for network operations.
  • Community: SNMP community to connect to, default is 'public'
  • The following configuration options are available for SNMP v3:
  • Path to other MIBs: IxoraRMS comes with a set of precompiled MIBs that describe the structure of most commonly encountered SNMP databases. This can be extended by specifying here the path to additional MIB files in ASN.1 format. All subfolders of this path will be searched, and all files found will be included.
  • Port: port tu use when connecting to the host.
  • Network timeout: timeout for network operations.
  • User name: user name.
  • Authentication: authentication protocol to use.
  • Authentication password: password to use with the authentication protocol.
  • User privacy: encryption algorithm to use to ensure privacy.
  • Context name: target context name for SNMPv3 messages.
  • Authorative context engine: authoritative engine ID of the command responder used for SNMPv3 request messages. If not supplied, the engine ID will be discovered.
  • Context engine: context engine ID used for the SNMPv3 scoped PDU. The authoritative engine ID will be used for the context engine ID, if the latter is not specified.


Contents

Structure of the data tree is given by the definitions found inside all MIB files. Many hosts will only support a subset of this tree, and will not return any values for the unsuported elements.
