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,
      I would like to see the ability to run dual screens viewable at the same time on the remote control. That way customers who need to run dual screens and have to work from home arent stuck playing swap between screens. I think either opening a second connection to the computer with one of the separate screen would be fine, but maybe there is a better way like how Remote Desktop works or Google Chrome Remote Desktop works.

      Hi.
      If it is possible I would like to exclude full automation scripts from the diagnostics log "trace.log".
      In normal situations it is fine with just an indication of the execution with the script name.
      I guess you could add one more checkbox like "Include full Automation Scripts" in settings, and let it be disabled as default.

      Best Regards,
      Martin.

      Hello there, I just got Pulseway today as of 5/1/20 and am intending to use it to mainly be able to remote control access my PC from my phone when away from the house. I am installed all the appropriate applications needed and went through the Pulseway Remote Access application along with Pulseway Manager application and have enabled Remote Access. But for some reason I still can not access it from my phone. Perhaps I am missing a step? It would be amazing if someone would be able to help me troubleshoot this situation. Thank you for your time.

      I love the fact that we can now use the android app to remote into managed devices.  It works well when the user is already logged in...
      The problem I'm experiencing is when I remote control a Windows device and have to login.  I bring up the keyboard no problem and try typing the password to that computer.  What I am typing on my keyboard isn't typing in the password box on the PC.  In other words, it never seems to respond and type the password letters as I am typing, hence I cannot login (invalid password).  I suspect it has something to do with how Android on Samsung deals with autofill.  Ironically, I don't have this problem when using the Team Viewer app on the same phone.  That fact leads me to believe that it is a problem with the Pulseway Android App.

      Hi,
      I use high CPU notification to notify me when the CPU usage has been over 90% for the last 30 minutes.
      Even though I have added more minutes to the time period, I still get a lot of these notifications. I would really like to know what is causing these long periods of high CPU usage but the content of the notification always displays processes with very low CPU usage. Can something be done to get this list sorted by the highest CPU using process?
      Here is an example of the latest notification:
      The CPU usage on computer 'XXX' in group XXX -XXX -XXX' is above 90% for the last 30 minutes
       
      Top Processes:
      Windows Explorer (Explorer.EXE): 0.04%
      Host Process for Windows Services (svchost.exe): 0.03%
      Microsoft Outlook (OUTLOOK.EXE): 0.03%
      Desktop Window Manager (dwm.exe): 0.02%
      SkypeApp (SkypeApp.exe): 0.02%
      WMI Provider Host (wmiprvse.exe): 0.02%
      Host Process for Windows Services (svchost.exe): 0.01%
      Host Process for Windows Services (svchost.exe): 0.01%
      Host Process for Windows Services (svchost.exe): 0.01%
      Microsoft Excel (EXCEL.EXE): 0.01%.
