We are currently working on a Test environmant for a big client and want to know on how we can get the HP Switches configured, so that we can use PRTG for it? I saw a couple of postings already but none of them are working for us. I guess our problem lies in the Switches itself not necessarily on PRTG! HP switches are 2530 - 8G and 24G / I tried enabling snmp version 1,2 and 3 without success. Any ideas?
could you please download the SNMP Tester and check if you are getting a response from the switches at all? Just try scanning for Uptime and Available Standard Interfaces. What are the results?
Hi, I downloaded snmp tester but I figured, that after disable/enable the HP snmp function 5 times, it suddenly worked! weird one...also we are using 6 HP switches where as 5 are working just fine but one is not gettiong it. Even after re-enableing snmp several times, rebooting a.s.o - anyway, I may figure it out later.
We are currently using a xenserver Pool using HighAvailability software called "Marathon everRun" - We have all Libraries and trying to get those snmp traps working as well. Saying that, we have actually all the OID's in that library and they seem to work - somehow! When adding the sensor "snmp custom using OID" we receive results like Status up and a value e.g. 6# - when running that axact OID in the snmp tester I receive the Host IP with it's IP address (which by the way I want to see) - so what can be done to show the IP instead of the 6# ? Or what would be the correct template?
may you provide some screenshots illustrating the issue? Are you trying to receive SNMP Traps or do you want to perform SNMP GET requests (as the SNMP Sensors are doing)?
Hello, we have moved the Pre-Configured System into the Clients premises. Therefore, I cannot provide the details as yet but will do asap! We're trying to receive SNMP Traps and their current status. e.g. Network Link down/up as well as getting SNMP informations like the hostname or IP address (but this one is not important - the Network Link up/down are the ones we are looking at); Will send you some screenshots later one...
To get information on network links being up/down you might just use SNMP Traffic Sensors. To receive SNMP Traps you might want to know that there are limitations of the Trap Receiver at the moment. Please note that we are also working on a new Trap Receiver Sensor which is available in the Preview Release Channel.
