NSO - SNMP southbound support

Hi Experts,

I'm pretty new to NSO and wanted to know if there exists any SNMP southbound support for NSO so that I could fetch device data using SNMP mibs?

-Regards

Hello Joyal,

You can create an SNMP NED to communicate with devices via SNMP.

All you need is to prepare .mib files and execute following command.

ncs-make-package --snmp-ned <.mib directory> <package name>

I tested IOS IF-MIB and following is how it looks like.

admin@ncs# show running-config devices device R2 config

devices device R2

config

  if-mib:IF-MIB ifTable ifEntry 1

   ifAdminStatus          down

   ifLinkUpDownTrapEnable enabled

   ifPromiscuousMode      false

   ifAlias                ""

  !

  if-mib:IF-MIB ifTable ifEntry 2

   ifAdminStatus          up

   ifLinkUpDownTrapEnable enabled

   ifPromiscuousMode      false

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Hiro

Thanks for sharing the info, Hiro!

Is there an example of setting up the device config (authgroup, device-type, etc) for being able to access both cli and snmp for the same device?

Hello Timothy,

Following is show outputs in my lab.

NSO connects to R2 via CLI and R2m via SNMP.

Note, R2 and R2 are same device, but NSO communicates with them via different protocol.

admin@ncs# show devices list

NAME  ADDRESS   DESCRIPTION  NED ID     ADMIN STATE

R1    10.1.1.2  -            cisco-ios  unlocked    

R2    20.1.1.2  -            cisco-ios  unlocked    

R2m   20.1.1.2  -            snmp       unlocked    

admin@ncs# show running-config devices device R2
