SNMP Tools

It is common to have heterogeneous network environment hence the available tools in the OpUtils toolset might not be sufficient to monitor a wider range of devices. In such a scenario the SNMP toolset can be used to monitor such devices. The MIB database has a huge number of both private and standard vendor MIBs. Using tools such as SNMP walker and MIB browser one can monitor any SNMP device.

Tools included in this category are:

SNMP Walker

A utility to retrieve specified number of MIB objects value using SNMP GET-NEXT operation. Using this tool you can provide any OID value and query a device for the next consecutive OIDs.

Trap Receiver

This tool listens for real-time network traps and displays them. The trap details, such as Trap OID, Source, Received Time, Varbind Descriptions, and so on, are shown. The tool can be configured to send an email alert on receipt of a trap.

MIB Browser

The MIB Browser tool is a utility that enables you to load and browse MIBs and perform SNMP operations. With this tool, you can perform all SNMP-related operations such as GET, GET-NEXT, GET-BULK, and SET. The above SNMP operations can be performed on the specified agent.

For more details on each of the tools, refer to the SNMP Tools section of the online help.
