Trending this month: SNMP Monitoring in ProactiveNet

 

We see many different types of issues with ProactiveNet and we do our best to help customers get up and running as quickly as possible.

 

One topic where we have received a few questions over the last month has to do with SNMP polling/monitoring within ProactiveNet.

Does BPPM 9.0 support SNMP get polling? The SNMP adapter is marked deprecated in the Admin Console and the SNMP Configuration Manager, based on the documentation, appears to only be a TRAP receiver. Is there a polling agent or KM we can use? What does BMC recommend for SNMP monitoring in PNET?

 

1) The SNMP Configuration Manager is a TRAP receiver in ProactiveNet

 

2) Even though the native BPPM SNMP monitor is marked deprecated we are still supporting it.

2a) See the 8.5 BMC ProactiveNet Administrator Guide for more information about the monitor wizard

                                http://documents.bmc.com/supportu/documents/66/31/166631/166631.pdf

 

3) Another option available is the Sentry Software's Monitoring Studio KM for PATROL

3a) See page 142 "SNMP Polling" of the Monitoring Studio KM for PATROL 8.6.53 User Documentation

                               http://documents.bmc.com/supportu/documents/60/87/246087/246087.pdf

 

 

Another user encountered questions about the SNMP Adapter in BPPM:

 

 

 

We have to configure the SNMP Event adapter in order to be able to receive SNMP traps in BPPM.  What are the details to install the adapter? Where do we find more information about configuring the SNMP Event Adapter?

 

 

The following guide references the SNMP Event and Impact Event Adapter Configuration in detail.
