It is common to have a heterogeneous network environment. Hence the available tools in the OpUtils tool set might not be sufficient to monitor a wider range of devices. In such a scenario, the OpUtils SNMP tools can be used to monitor such devices. The MIB database has a huge number of both private and standard vendor MIBs. Using the tools such as walker tool and MIB browser tool, one can monitor any device.
OpUtils is a switch port and IP address management software that helps network engineers manage their switches and IP address space with ease. Businesses increasingly rely on their networks and resources for basic operations. ManageEngine OpUtils with its suite of 30+ tools, addresses the need of Network Engineers for troubleshooting connectivity issues, and on-demand monitoring of the network.
ManageEngine OpUtils provides the following utilities for performing basic operations.
The SNMP MIB Browser tool is a utility that enables you to load and browse MIBs and perform various operations. With mib browser tool, you can perform all SNMP-related operations such as GET, GET-NEXT, GET-BULK, and SET. The above stated operations along with the SNMP MIB scanner can be performed on the specified agent in the mib browser tool.
For more details on each of the tools, refer to the SNMP Tools section of the online help.
SNMP Graph utility of OpUtils software is used to gather real time data and draws a graph for any SNMP IP node. It also provides the MIB node information like OID, syntax, description and MIB node properties. The SNMP data to be polled should be of integer or unsigned integer data type (Counter, Gauge, or Timeticks).
It also provides MIB node information like OID, syntax, description and MIB node properties.
Many a times network engineers are aware of the MIB node (OID name) but not sure of the OID and its properties. In such situations MIB Node Viewer utility would be of great use. It accepts the node name or the OID as input and provides the complete information on the MIB node.
The MIB Module Viewer provides a snapshot of a given MIB. It provides some general information on the MIB and also provides the defined attributes, total number of nodes, defined TCs, and the defined traps. It also provides the SMIv2 specific details.
The Community Checker utility of the OpUtils software scans the range of IP Addresses to get their SNMP read and write community strings based on the pre-defined set of default and standard community strings of the switches, routers, etc.
