SNMP to monitor network devices

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We have a network set up with security cameras and we'd like to use Pulseway to monitor the status of the cameras.  We thought about using the ping tool but we are worried ping a large number of devices every 5 seconds could have negative effects on the network and/or switch the devices are on.

Does anyone know of a way to use SNMP for this?  I was going through the set up but couldnt figure out which OID to use.

We are using the enterprise edition. 

 

Thanks,

~ Chris

Hi Chris,

Welcome to the Pulseway community. You'll need to download the MIB files form the device manufacturer's website then import them into a SNMP Browser (I recommend this one), navigate through the objects and see which variables you want to monitor. Once you've figured out which variables you'd like to monitor just copy and paste the OIDs into Pulseway and then configure the notification rules to notify you when those values exceed the normal values.

The KB article show the steps with the agent. Can we monitor network devices like routers and switches? where there the agents cannot be configured?

Hi @Ali Syed,

Yes, you can monitor network devices if the SNMP monitoring is supported on those devices. Pulseway will monitor your network devices from the Windows system using SNMP. The instructions how to configure it is the same as in that KB article.

Just make sure that SNMP is enabled for network devices on the required network interfaces so Pulseway can access it.

Hello Chris,

I was able to add the SNMP alert as you guided me but I am unable to determine what value should I set for a service. The service is ATPServiceStatus. I attached a snap and the MIB file.

      I changed phones recently and the new app says:
      'This device is pending approval. Login to the WebApp and approve it from the account devices page.'
      If I got to https://my.pulseway.com/main/account/devices there is no device to approve.
      Am I doing something wrong?

      Here is a Batch script to empty the SoftwareDistribution Folder.  It stops any installer processes in the background, temporarily disables the Windows Update Service, deletes everything in the Software Distribution folder then sets the Windows update service back to automatic and starts the service.
      @echo off
      CD C:\
      taskkill /F /im setup.exe
      taskkill /F /im ose00000.exe
      taskkill /F /im msiexec.exe
      sc config wuauserv start= disabled
      net stop wuauserv
      PowerShell.exe Remove-Item C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\* -Force -Recurse
      sc config wuauserv start= demand
      net start wuauserv

      Hi
      Could someone assist in helping me to set up an alert when a network connection is dropped.
      This is happening at one of my client sites after changing to a new ISP. The ISP says the router/switch is fine but connections are dropping.
      I would like to be able to log when a connection drops (ideally knowing if the internet connection has dropped or just the internal network connection)
      I'm not sure a simple ping notification is good enouh in Pulseway to do this as I need to know if the connection has dropped for a few mseconds as well as larger outages.
      I guess the Event Viewer holds the answers but would appreciate it if anyone has done this before if they could share their thoughts.
      Thank you, Andy
