    Hi,

     

    We are using SNMPC 3.3

     

    We want to configure threshold alarms for interface link up and link down.

     

    How are AdminStatusPollable and OperStatusPollable in snmpcollector calculated?

     

    Mean to say that how much threshold we define to get an alarm whenever devices

    interface is down

    interface is up

     

    through SNMPC probe??

    Those values are queried based on the state of ifOperStatus and ifAdminStatus variables

     

    These would be the states 

     

    ifAdminStatus

    1 : up

    2 : down

    3 : testing

     

     

    IfOperStatus 

      1 : up

      2 : down

      3 : testing

      4 : unknown

      5 : dormant

      6 : notPresent

      7 : lowerLayerDown

    Hi,

    I got your points, you are talking about the states for ifAdminStatus and IfOperStatus.

     

    But my query is

     

    How much threshold value?? we define to get an alarm whenever devices

    interface is down

    interface is up

     

    through SNMPC probe??

    As mentioned in the other thread , if you want to generate an alarm for any other states other when interface is UP, set the threshold to !=1

    Phani is correct on snmpcollector metrics that can be used for interface health status checking, but if you only need 'event driven notification' then SNMPTD is enough to receive link down, link up.
