SNMP configuration

Dear All,

below is the SNMP configuration, but I am little bit of confused. Like how does it work?

Can anyone explain??? Also, i want to know the difference between SNMP and RMON. How can I use RMON here effectively?

Hi,

snmp-server community chas_ro RO:

this is a read-only community with password chas_ro

snmp-server community chas_rw RW:

this is a read-write community with password chas_rw

So when NMS wants to read MIB values it will use the password for RO community and when it wants to read or write(change) MIB values it will use the password for RW community.

snmp-server host 192.168.100.253 version 2c chas_ro:

you define the IP address of the NMS where you will be sending V2c traps( unsolicited infos pushed to NMS)

snmp-server enable traps:

you enable the sending of traps for all the following events.

Now concerning RMON: it is used for monitoring MIB values when they attain some threshold or a threshold change

has been crossed then it will trigger an event: sending a SNMP trap and/or syslog message

Regards.

Hi,

OID is Object Identifier which  uniquely identifies  a managed object  in the  MIB.

The MIB must be known by both the SNMP agent( the end device) and the NMS( the machine which receives traps or send

GET or SET queries to the agent).

Regards.

Hi Alain,

Thanks for the reply... But where does the MIB value reside? In switch or managed device?

And what is OID?

I have the core switch 4506e in which above SNMP is configured. 4506e is connected to 6 different 2960 switches to which end users are connected. I want to know bandwidth utilization per port.

How can I achieve this?

Please help
