SNMP MIB for simple alert

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  SNMP MIB for simple alert

    Posted 10-11-2012 07:00 PM
    I have been able to successful send an SNMP alert to an external Manager. There are some OIDs that just have a single digit number behind them. Where is a MIB file for alerts, or how can I identify what the OID represents? I've been looking into an SNMP collection, and might be able to find my answer there, but haven't had any luck so far.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to publish the MIB:

    1. Log in to the Workstation as a user with publish_mib permission. I normally give my ID publish_mib permission, or you can log in as Admin.
    2. Open a new managment module editor.
    3. Select "Publish MIB..." from the Manager menu.
    4. You'll find the MIB in the snmp directory on the EM server.

    I'm working from memory and don't have a workstation in front of me so I hope that's correct! :-)

    Craigporter--That is method to get the MIB for metrics but I couldn't find one for alerts. Some OIDs are obvious but when just a number is given I couldn't tell what the number referred to.

    CA Support replied with some information which was helpful. So an OID for an alert looks like this-- ".", the meaning of the last number is below--

    In 9.0.7 there are 17 OIDs. We have added some more in APM 9.1 . The details on the values sent along in the trap are as follows in this order(:
    timestamp OID - Alert triggered time
    sourcehostOID - EM host from which alert was triggered
    ipOID - EM's ip address
    messageOID - Alert message
    domainOID - Agent's domain
    hostOID - Agent's host
    processOID - Agent's process
    agentOID - Agent's Name
    metricOID - Metric attribute URL
    valueOID - Current metric value
    dashboardUrlOID - Dashboard URL that is configured in the SNMP
    alert action
    thresholdOID - Threshold value of the alert
    enableIntegrationOID - Value is hardcoded to 1
    additionalMetricsOID - "Yes"/"No" depending on if the simple alert
    component has additional metrics.
    versionOID - Version of the SNMP Alert Action
    statusOID - Current alert status
    fullTimestampOID - Alert triggered time in a format with year and

    For 9.1, there new OIDs:

    20: alert Type OID
    21: alerted Component OID Triage map component
    22: alerted Component ID OID Triage map component id
    23: alerted Component Name OID Triage map component Name
    24: alertName OID Name of the alert

    For 9.1.1, here is the new OID
    25: emHOST OID EM host
