    Hi,

     

    Is anyone has ever configured the snmpd on API Gateway to be able to make use of the JVM-MANAGEMENT-MIB from Oracle ? How can I set up API Gateway to be able to get SNMP stats for the running JVMs ?

     

    https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/jre/api/management/JVM-MANAGEMENT-MIB.mib

     

    Thanks

    Hi , 

     

    SNMP functionality is not enabled by default on the Gateway , you can enable this following the documentation 

    Gateway as SNMP Agent - CA API Gateway - 9.3 - CA Technologies Documentation 

    This however does not include the JVM-MANAGEMENT-MIB , i am also not aware we can enable it .

     

    Regards

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for the reply. Support have answer the actual question and even if you are allowed to install the MIB on the server it is not supported to add any OPTS param to the SSG jvm to make it accessible for the SNMP server.

     

    On the other hand, they provide me with a JvmMetricsAssertion SJAR tool kit that I was able to install in the Policy Manager and now I have all the required metrics that I needed from the gateway. It make use of the Tactical Agent to generate thoses data if I understand correctly what they said to me.

     

    I will began to let go of SNMP as of now, also knowing that in JDK10, there is no support of SNMP anymore as it was depreciated by Oracle :https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/10-relnote-issues-4108729.html

     

    Thanks again for your help !
