ActiveXperts Network Monitor is a software solution you need to scan your network servers, workstations and devices for failures or irregularities. With ActiveXperts Network Monitor, you can identify issues and fix unexpected problems before your others even know they've happened. ActiveXperts Network Monitor maximizes network availability by monitoring all aspects of your servers, workstations, switches, routers, printers and any other devices. It can also detect temperature, humidity and other environmental aspects in your server rooms.
SNMP means: Simple Network Management Protocol.
The SNMP GET message allows the ActiveXperts Network Monitor Engine (service) to retrieve information from a remote server, workstation or IP device.
The agent, upon receiving a GET message, repons with a GET-RESPONSE message with either the information requested or an error indication as to why the request cannot be processed.
The ActiveXperts SNMP check supports SNMP v1 and SNMP v2c, and requires the following parameters:
Host - Hostname or IP address of the server/device to monitor;
Port - UDP port used for SNMP on the target machine/device. Default port is 161;
Community - The SNMP community string; Default: 'public';
Protocol - Indicates how the SNMP client should communica
te with the remote SNMP agent. If you choose 'Automatic', the SNMP agents on both sites will negotiate and use the preferred protocol. Choose 'SNMPv1' to force the agents to use SNMP version 1; choose 'SNMP v2c' to force the agents to use SNMP version 2c;
OID (Numeric/Symbolic) - The Object ID; the OID is a long numeric tag or a symbolic (friendly) name, used to distinguish each variable uniquely in the MIB and in SNMP messages. If you use the numeric tag format, the OID can be prefixed by a '.'. This is optional. For example: .220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.0 or 22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.0. riendly names are names like: system.sysName.0, or interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifOperStatus.1. Select a symbolic OID from a MIB file… - Use this button to select an alpha-numeric OID from a MIB file. You can use virtually any 3rd-party MIB file;
OID Data Type - The OID Data type. The following type are valid data types: Bit Stream, Counter, Integer, IP address, Object Identifier, Opaque String, String, Time Ticks and Unsigned Integer;
OID Data must be - Choose the condition: Equal To, Not Equal To, Less Than, Less or Equal To, Greater Than, Greater or Equal To. This condition is used to compare the actual SNMP value against the 'IOD Data Value';
OID Data Value - OID value that will be compared against the actual OID value, using the 'OID Data must be' operand;
AND / OR - To extend the condition, use AND or OR operator. When selecting AND or OR, you must specify an additional condition (Equal To, etc.) and OID Data Value.
