I am a new user and am in the process of setting my system up. I bought Opsview Pro 100 version 4.4.1 I am monitoring several Cisco WS-C4900M switches, among other things. I thought I'd start workign with the switches first. I enabled snmp on one switch with the following settings:
Switch> enableSwitch# configure terminal Switch(config)#snmp-server chassis-id Switchxx Switch(config)# snmp-server community public Switch(config)# snmp-server enable traps snmp Switch(config)# snmp-server host xxx.xxx.xxx.195 version 2c public Switch(config)#exit
I went into Opsview and added the switches using the Network-Cisco Host Template. On one switch (the one I setup with snmp), I clicked on the SNMP tab and checked the "Enable SNMP" checkbox, selected version v2c, left the port at 161 and added the SNMP community. I then clicked on the "Test SNMP connection", which was successful.
I noticed in monitoring that switch, I was seeing green for the CPU load average and the Memory status items. The other switch had "unknown" for these items because snmp was not communicating properly (as expected - I did not set it up yet).
I thought I'd simulate a hardware failure to see if it was reported; I unplugged one power supply. The switch front panel reflected the loss of power on one PS. The error was never rippled back to Opsview; the Opsview status stayed green.
What am I doing wrong?
