How to query SNMP Variables in OpManager?

The MibBrowser utility is a handy tool to troubleshoot SNMP issues.
You can query an SNMP variable on a device to check for its response.
Using this utility, you will be able to:

  • assess the availability of SNMP on the device
  • query a variable for response
  • make sure whether a variable is implemented or not on a device

Here is how you can use the MibBrowser to troubleshoot/query a variable:

1. Invoke the MIB Browser.bat file from /bin' directory.
2. Click the LOAD icon and browse and load the required MIB.
3. In the Mib Browser UI, provide the name of the device which you want to query in the host name field.
4. Expand the MIB on the left tree and select the required variable which you want to query
7. Click the GETSNMP Variable icon. You will see the query response in the text area. 

In the above screenshot, you see the response to the CPU variable from HostResource mib on a Windows device. Load the relevant vendor mibs similarly and expand the required table, select the OID and query.
