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%
I have not tried it myself yet, but you should look into the new network monitoring tool that launched with SCOM2016.
System Center Operations Manager – Extensible Network Monitoring
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.
Sorry - I removed my comment - I was thinking about MIB2MP.
I’ll check out System Center Operations Manager – Extensible Network Monitoring.
Thanks for your help
