Adding a Monitor for SNMP OIDs from MIB

  • Last updated on

The monitor called Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Object Identifiers (OIDs) from MIB is a selection available only when creating monitoring policies using a Management Information Base (MIB). MIB is a repository of all SNMP OIDs for a device.

What You Can Do

You can build a monitoring policy working directly with the MIB file provided by the vendor, which ensures you are aware of all the potential data that can be collected and eliminates the possibility of entering incorrect values.

The MIB file must be uploaded first. MIB files have a .mib file extension.

To upload the MIB file into Service Center
  1. In Service Center, click Configuration > Policies > Monitoring.
  2. Click New.
  3. Provide a name and description, and click Create.
  4. Click the Monitors tab.
  5. Click Add Monitor.
  6. Select SNMP from MIB from the list, and click Add Monitor.
  7. Click Upload MIBs to Library.
  8. Click Choose File, select the file and click Open.
  9. Click Upload.
    The Results section confirms the upload was successful, listing the number of files added.
  10. Click Finished.
  11. From the Browse Library list, select the MIB file that you just uploaded and click Load MIB.
To add a monitor for SNMP OIDs from MIB
  1. Follow the steps in To upload the MIB file into Service Center.

  2. In the Loaded MIBs pane, select the check box beside each MIB for which you want to see the OIDs.
    The OIDs appear in the MIB Browser pane. If available, a description of the OID appears in the Selected Object Description pane. If there are dependencies or errors related to an MIB, the information appears in the message box below the viewer area.
  3. In the MIB Browser pane, select the check box beside each OID you want to add as a monitor in the monitoring policy.
  4. From the Polling Interval list, select an appropriate time to set how frequently the data is captured.
  5. Do one of the following to set when the monitor runs:
    • To set the monitor to run all the time, do nothing.

    • To change when the monitor runs, select either the Daily Interval or Specific Interval from the list and use the corresponding lists to define the monitoring.

  6. Click Add Selected Objects.
  7. If required, provide the Index value for each OID and click Save.
    The Monitoring Policy window opens and the selected OIDs have been added as monitors in the monitoring policy.
  8. To configure an alert, see Setting Alert Actions.
  9. Click Save.
To delete an MIB file from Service Center
  1. In Service Center, click Configuration > Policies > Monitoring.
  2. Select the monitoring policy name where the monitor is located.
