By default, the CommuniGate Pro SNMP agent is not activated.
Use the WebAdmin Interface to configure the SNMP Module. Open the Services pages in the Settings realm, and open the SNMP page:
The SNMP agent records in the System Log are marked with the SNMP tag. Please note that SNMP is a binary protocol, so all low-level data is presented in the hexadecimal form.
The MIB (Management Information Base) is a text file describing the internal objects the SNMP agent can display, monitor, and/or modify. You need the CommuniGate Pro MIB file to properly configure the SNMP client ("manager") you want to use for server monitoring.
Different versions of the CommuniGate Pro software support different sets of internal objects, and CommuniGate Pro Server generates its MIB by a user request, presenting the most current information.
To access the CommuniGate Pro MIB file, use the WebAdmin interface to access the
Save this file to a monitoring workstation disk and use it to configure your SNMP manager software.
Use the WebAdmin Interface to monitor the Server internal parameters via Web. Open the Statistics page in the Monitors realm.
The page contains the list of the SNMP (MIB) elements and their current values. Each element name is a link. Click the element link to open the Element Monitor page.
You can use the Filter field and the Display button to filter SNMP elements by name.
There are time stamps at the bottom of the histogram (the time stamp on the right is the latest sampling time). On the right side of the histogram the graphic scale is indicated.
The histogram traces the current value of the INTEGER-type elements. For the COUNTER-type elements, the histogram traces the difference between the last two sample values, divided by the number of seconds passed between samples.
The WebAdmin Preferences can be used to change the parameters of the SNMP Web Monitor system.
The CLI/API GetSNMPElement command allows a Server Administrator to monitor the server internal parameters via the CLI/API interface and via various CLI "wrappers".
The SNMP module can send Traps on certain Events. See the Triggers section for more details. Traps can be sent to the network addresses explicitly specified in the Event Handler settings and/or to all remembered network addresses - addresses from which SNMP requests with the "Trap Password" community name have been received.
The SNMP module sends Traps using the SNMP protocol version specified with the Trap Protocol setting.
