SNMP (Performance)

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) monitor accesses SNMP-supported network devices and graphs performance output.

Provide a unique name and description for the monitor, then configure the following:

  1. Click Select from list to launch the MIB Browser.
  2. Enter the Name or IP Address for any monitored device or click Browse (...) to select a device, then click OK to return to the MIB Browser.
  3. Select a valid SNMP v1/v2/v3 credential from the list or click Browse (...) to access the Credentials Library where you can create a new one, then click Save to return to the MIB Browser.
  4. Update the default Timeout and/or Number of retries if desired, then click OK to connect to the device.
  5. Select the specific Object ID and Instance to be monitored from the navigation tree displayed within the SNMP MIB Browser dialog, then click OK.
  6. Enable Plot raw values to monitor the current polled value instead of tracking the rate of change over time. Use this feature to graph the current value of the SNMP object.

Tip: While SNMP Performance monitors are used to gather historic performance, accounting, fault, and security metrics data useful for reports, SNMP active monitors are used to determine device Up state.
