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.

      I am having issues with pulsewaycredentialprovider.dll stopping the Windows login screen from loading on Windows 10 1809.
      I have submitted a ticket to support at support@pulseway.com as well.
      The issue is that with Pulseway software installed and the credential provider loading the system boots to the displayed screen but will go no further.  I am able to run terminal and PowerShell commands from the web interface (prior to software uninstall) but can never log in.  Pulseway remote does not work either.
      This is happening on two Windows 10 1809 DELL Optiplex computers with fresh Windows 10 PRO installations.
      RIght now our only solution is to leave Pulseway uninstalled.
      Any information or solution helpful.
      Thanks.
      John

      Hi,
      On the Windows Dashboard 6.1 (build 1113) the up-time display is quite strange - I love precision but

      We receive automated alerts as tickets but would also like to receive them in emails. What level of integration is supported and if it is, where can I find that option in the dashboard?

      Is there a way to monitor the temperature on a machine on an on-going (or logged) basis?  I would like to set a notification to be sent when the Core Temp reached xx degrees. I see that it is monitored in the hardware section, but i can't find a place to trigger an event.
      Thakn you,
