Does anyone have some pointers in terms of writing a very simple management pack that will do a discovery using SNMP looking at a specific OID then alert when that value is above a certain level?
We have a old UPS and we can access all sorts of monitor values via SNMP one of witch is the current load of the UPS – I would like to write a MP or construct a monitor that will alert if the UPS load value goes above 75%
Does this help ?
I have not tried it myself yet, but you should look into the new network monitoring tool that launched with SCOM2016.
I’ve added some UPS systems and temperature sensors (not using the tool above) and the basic operation is:
- Add it as a network device
- Create a group (optional) for the device
- Create SNMP monitors targeting the OID you want to monitor, scope to group/device
The tool works great, SNMP management pack authoring is honestly not that easy, and this tool helps a lot to author basic SNMP management packs.
