How to use SNMP to monitor Cat 4006 Back Plane

We are seeing a lot of latency on our network, but if I look at the individual ports none of them are near to being maxed out.  I was told that I need to do an smnp walk to find out the MIB's on the back plane.  Can someone tell me how I would go about doing this so I can add this device to Cacti and I can see if the 4006 is our bottleneck.

Thanks,

Dan

Hi Dan,

First of all you need to enable the snmp traps like below in the switch.

Switch(config)#  snmp-server enable traps
Switch(config)#  snmp-server host myhost.cisco.com public

And now permit the SNMP traps to the server say in your case the Cacti.

Switch(config)#set ip permit enable snmp
Switch(config)#set ip permit 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 snmp
Switch(config)#set ip permit 192.168.2.1 snmp


Hope this helps you.

ok, I got the first command in okay

Cat4006> (enable) set snmp trap enable

All SNMP traps enabled.

But I cannot seem to find a way to set this

Switch(config)#  snmp-server host myhost.cisco.com public

Hi,

Just apply the below command and see whether you go....

Switch(config)#  snmp-server host host_ip public

Hope this helps you.

This must be an old version of the IOS because I cannot perform a config t, I have to use set commands, a lot of these commands are not there under set

Cat4006> (enable) set snmp ?

  access                     Set SNMP access group

  community                  Set SNMP community table

  group                      Set SNMP group

  notify                     Set SNMP notify

  rmon                       Set SNMP RMON

  rmonmemory                 Set SNMP memory usage limit for new RMON entries

  targetaddr                 Set SNMP targetaddr

  targetparams               Set SNMP targetparams

  trap                       Set SNMP trap information

  user                       Set SNMP user

  view                       Set SNMP view

Hi Dan,

You could simply perform a traceroute towards the destination host you're experiencing latency issues. Also the show proc cpu and show mem stat hist could tell you if this device is the culprit.

Our network is pretty slow today, that si why I have the oportunity to look into this I can do the show proc cpu(see below) but show mem stat hist is not a valid command

Cat4006> (enable) sh proc cpu
