SNMP Monitoring Test


Sub section menu:

The Monitoring tests are found in the MONITORING TAB in the MCS main menu, as shown on the right.

To add a new SNMP TEST click the ADD TASK LINK.

Add Monitoring Task

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a popular protocol for network management.

It is used for collecting information from, and configuring, network devices, such as servers, printers, hubs, switches, and routers on an Internet Protocol (IP) network.

The SNMP Monitor test sends a request for the 'description' OID of a SNMP enabled device. The test confirms that the device is up and responding to SNMP requests.

READ ONLY SNMP COMMUNITY NAME: The "SNMP Community name" is like a user id or password that allows access to a router's or other device's statistics. If the community name is correct, the device responds with the requested information.

CONSOLIDATE: As it's possible to perform a ping every few seconds it's usually necessary to consolidate the data for the database. This means an average of all results over a certain time frame are taken and added to the database as one entry.

Custom Thresholds

This section is only used if the user wishes to alter the default thresholds.

The default settings are shown in brackets for each parameter.

This will not affect the global thresholds for other tests, they will be unique values for this test.

Click ADD SNMP TASK to save changes.
