SNMP Tools

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.

SNMP Tools

Why must OpUtils be used for monitoring a heterogeneous network environment?

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.

Tools included in this category of tools are:

  • MIB Browser - Tool is used to load, browse, search and walk through MIBs, and perform certain basic functions.
  • SNMP Graph - Utility to periodically query the given SNMP device for the specified OID value and plot the results in a graph.
  • MIB Node Viewer - Utility to provide the details of a particular MIB node and / or the complete details of the selected MIB.
  • MIB Module Viewer - Utility to provide a snapshot of a given MIB.

MIB Browser

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.

MIB Browser

Features:

  • Load/unload MIBs and fetch MIB data of SNMP(v1, v2c, v3) agent
  • Perform operations from Windows and Linux devices
  • Parse traps based on pre-defined match criteria
  • View traps from agents and set up alert emails
  • Leverage SNMPv3 security as defined in USM and VACM standards
  • The mib scanner helps to view Table data and get graphical representation in real-time
  • Get the complete list of OIDs implemented on your device

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

SNMP Graph

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.

MIB Node Viewer

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.

MIB Module Viewer

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.
