SNMP Graph is hardware independent and capable of graphically displaying statistics from any device that supports SNMP and has a valid MIB OID. This tool uses the extensive MIB database of thousands of standard and vendor MIBs, but can also monitor SNMP variables that are not in the SolarWinds MIB database.
- Click .
- On the New SNMP MIB variable to Graph window, provide the information:
- IP address or host name (this device must support SNMP )
- SNMP community string (read or read and write)
- SNMP MIB variable to monitor
- Enter the name of the MIB, for example,
- Enter the OID of the MIB to monitor, for example,
- Click and select a MIB from the tree
- Click , and then click : search by OID, name, or description
- Units and calculation
- If more than one index is found, select the indexes you want to graph, and then click .
Wait as the tool establishes a baseline. This can take up to a minute.
- Monitored OID elements are displayed in a table below the graph, while the real time results are displayed in the graph. If different types of data were selected, multiple axes will be displayed on the left.
- SNMP Graph can monitor dissimilar data at the same time on a single chart. For example, you can monitor router CPU processor load in percent utilization on the same chart as traffic in bits per second. You can also monitor the number of unique users on a web server at the same time you monitor total traffic downloaded or response time.
