SNMP Polling is available to users who have installed an OnSight vCollector on their private network and want to monitor SNMP-capable network devices. For instructions on how to set up an OnSight vCollector, click here.
To get started with SNMP Polling, perform the following steps:
Selecting the model type will bring you into the catalog with the OID’s for that device. The list includes the name, OID, and a description of the metric. You can also search for a particular metric with keywords that may be contained in the description or name using the magnifying glass icon at the top right.
To add a threshold to an SNMP metrics, perform the following steps:
In the Performance section of the Instance Details page, each metric is presented differently. Device-level metrics will use performance line charts along the top.
Port/interface-level metrics use a customized roll up display which shows interface stats in expandable rows.
Click on a specific interface/port row to expose all interface specific performance and health metrics. The graphs will show both inbound/outbound stats stacked on the same graph with zooming ability. Click on the expand icon in the upper left-hand corner of a graph to see a full screen display.
Once you have thresholds set and alerts configured, you can use templates to standardize your configuration so you can stamp it out across similar device types.
