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.

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.
