    i am Using Solarwinds NPM / NCM to monitor my Network. i have around 70 Broacade switches. i am polling the switch for CPU and Memory Utilization. around 50% of switches did not respond to OID. and getting error as unsupported OID.


    i found that the switch which does not respond do not have Fiber watch License.

     

    Switch details: Model No: HP B-series 8/24c BladeSystem SAN SwitchBrocade SilkWorm Switch ver
    OID details :    1.3.6.1.4.1.1588.2.1.1.1.26.1 cpu used / 1.3.6.1.4.1.1588.2.1.1.1.26.6 Memory used

    First check your FOS code level on each of these switches and make sure that you have loaded the MIBs associated with that level. In 99% of cases this is the problem.

    Hi,

    I think you're right.

     

    For my switches, the only that responds at the OID query have theses licenses :

    • Extended Fabric
    • Fabric Watch
    • Performance Monitor
    • Trunking
    • Adaptive Networking
    • Server Application Optimization

     

    $ snmpwalk  -v1 -c public   -m ALL 

    (nothing returned)


    $ snmpwalk  -v1 -c public   -m ALL
