    Hi,  I'm using CAPC 2.5.  What is the easiest way to list exactly what mib objects are being polled by CAPC?

    There isn't any way to see the OIDs being used, in the GUI, but you can use REST, as follows

     

    http://<DA>:8581/typecatalog/certifications/snmp

     

    You can see the metrics being used, from the Metric Famies, on the Data Aggregator

    REST is fine, but I want to pass the device name/id, and say give me all oids for this device, and optionally, all it’s children.

    here is a document i made a while ago that walks you through associating an oid with a particular metric family

    Just to expand on what tom said ...

     

    1. http://<DA system>:8581/typecatalog/certifications/snmp
    2. search for the Vendor Cert name (like "High Speed IF" or whatever it is)
    3. Once you find the Vendor Cert name, start scrolling up and above it somewhere will be the "FacetType name" (it could be something like "IfXTableMib")
    4. http://<DA system>:8581/typecatalog/certifications/snmp/<FacetType name>

     

    this should give you oids / calculations

    Hi Joe,

     

    It's useful, but not what I'm looking for.   I want to do it for specific devices/elements/components - tired of being the guy who has to answer "what is being polled on this device..."

    Are you familiar with data collector debug? You can find it under http://ca-da:8581/dcdebug/searchdebug.jsp.

    It will provide you information on what the data collector is doing. You have several options available, as you can see from the screenshot. If you want to know which metric families are polled for each of the elements, you can check "Polling Configuration by IP". If you want to know exactly what is being polled for each IP, you can enable "Detailed SNMP Logging by IP" and check each request.

    It’s still just a lot of work – configuring the da, going through logs…

     

    Why can’t there just be a command or rest call to get this specific info?  I don’t want to look at logs and polls…

    As far as I know, that's the only way to see what is being polled for a certain device. It's for debugging purposes only. You're not supposed to do it on a daily basis. You can only monitor one IP at at time for this detailed information.

     

    I guess the reason why they are doing it like this relies on the underlying framework used for the collector and the data aggregator.
