APC Infrastruxure and Netbotz rack monitor

Has anyone successfully figured out a way to monitor a Netbotz rack monitor that is connected to APC Infrastruxure central? I am looking to get the environmental data from the Netbotz but am running into a few issues.

  1. The netbotz is on a network that can only be accessed via the proxy connection through Infrstuxure central. So the netbotz is on an isolated network 192.168.0.0 /24 and the Infrstuxure central device is accessed via the normal LAN network (10.1.1.0 /24). From what I know, you can only manage the Netbotz through Infrstuxure central.
  2. There doesn't seem to be a clear MIB for Netbotz device through APC even if I could connect directly to it.

Any suggestions?

Hello Keith,
thank you for your post.

I'm not familiar with APC Infrastruxure central, but can it be monitored/queried with SNMP?

If it offers SNMP Support, enable SNMP. Then download our latest SNMP Tester, run it on the PRTG Host (or host of the Remote Probe), and perform a Walk against the target device providing the "1.3.6" OID (without quotes) as parameter. This will tell you which OID's it responds to and may allow you to locate an appropriate MIB file. Feel free to share the output (if any).

Alternatively, check whenever you can use an additional vNIC on one of your PRTG Probes to ingress directly on the LAN/VLAN of the 192.168.0.0/24 isolated network, then monitor it as usual.

Luciano,

I have performed the walk like you said and this is the first part of the output (the Walk produced 5,500 lines of results) :

I tried using the to MIB files that APC gives out at this page: http://www.apc.com/us/en/tools/download/index.cfm under "firmware upgrades - MIB". Both didn't work in PRTG. One have an SNMP 2222 error and the other said no interfaces found. Weird there would be SNMP capability with no MIB files to be found.

Dear Keith,

You can also use the SNMP Tester and choose the Scan OIDLIB option. This will list all OIDs which are supported by the target device.

Best regards, Felix

Felix,

I am not seeing that Scan OIDLIB option in the MIB-Importer. I am using V3.4.8 alpha. Just so I understand, you want me to create a new OIDlib then scan the 1.3.6 OID and save that as a new MIB file?

Thanks,

Keith

Dear Keith,

Please excuse me, I wanted to refer to the SNMP Testing Tool.

Note: I corrected my previous post for future users of PRTG.

Best, Felix
