I'm trying to monitor an SNMP device but am unable to add SNMP/Network monitor.

I'm trying to monitor an SNMP device but am unable to add SNMP/Network monitor.

  1. Applications Manager should be able to access the SNMP device
    1. Make sure the host and SNMP port of the device is accessible and open from Applications Manager machine
  1. If the version is v1/v2, make sure the community string provided is correct.
  1. If the version is v3, make sure the user details provided is correct.
    1. Security Level
    2. Username
    3. Context
    4. Auth Password
    5. Auth Protocol
    6. Priv Password
    7. Priv Protocol
To verify if you have provided correct user details, you can either :
  1. Use a MIB Browser tool
    1. In the Mib browser, load the same v3 user configuration which you have provided while adding the monitor
    2. Load the mib file
    3. Click on SNMP Get command button and check if the connection to the SNMP device is successful.
  2.   snmpget command.
    1. Install snmp in your Applications Manager machine , or any other machine in the same network
    2. Try connecting to the SNMP device using snmpget  command. Based on the users security level :
    3. snmpget -v 3 -l noAuthNoPriv -u <USERNAME> -n <CONTEXTNAME> <HOST>:<PORT> .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1
    4. snmpget -v 3 -l authNoPriv -u <USERNAME> -n <CONTEXTNAME> -a <AUTHPROTOCOL> -A <AUTHPASSWORD> <HOST>:<PORT> .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1
    5. snmpget -v3 -l authPriv -u <USERNAME> -a <AUTHPROTOCOL> -A <AUTHPASSWORD> -x <PRIVPROTOCOL> -X <PRIVPASSWORD> .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1
