Re: SNMP(walk) ?



fixed

Excellent. I'll give that guy a spin.

I have found that PRTG (Paessler) for example does find a number of the MIBS including CPU, Memory size, DASD Size, DASD Used, Active job count, and Active Interactive User count and a bunch of the Ethernet stats. I'm looking for a nice detailed list though.

DR, I have downloaded a couple of free tools that do snmp type explorer
functions/mib browsing etc. I have had some pretty good luck at pulling
back information into these using public. Here is a link to one of them.

Oddly I've been fighting this myself. I opened a problem with IBM and
their answer is quoted below. It does NOT however give me all the detail
I'm looking for, rather it quotes RFCs and such. I would DEARLY love a
MIB or OIDLIB file for IBM i. Virtually every other platform provides
such a file, perhaps if we all make enough noise the IBM SNMP developers
will release one.

==============================================================================
The list of supported MIBs are documented in Chapter 9 of the Redbook An
Introduction to AS/400 SNMP Support.
In addition, Software Knowledge Base document 592938766 also mention the
new MIBs added at R710:


******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
Document Title: SNMPv3 at R710
Abstract
This document explains where to locate additional information on using
SNMPv3 introduced at R710.
Document Description:
This document explains where to locate additional information on using
SNMPv3 which was introduced to the System i at R710.

Red piece SG24-7858-00 IBM i 7.1 Technical Overview, Section 9.1.4
provides a high-level overview of the addition of SNMPv3

Primarily introduced at R710 to support IPv6, it also incorporates the
use of user-based authentication and data privacy.

Support for additional MIBs is also included with SNMPv3:

o RFC 4022 - MIB for the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
o RFC 4113 - MIB for the User Datagram Protocol (UDP)
o RFC 4293 - MIB for the Internet Protocol (IP)
o RFC 4292 - IP Forwarding Table MIB

Note: The Redpiece states that RFC4013 has been added. This appears to
be a typographical error and should state RFC 4113 as above.

Has anyone had any luck doing this, is there a way to find out what the

definitions are.
