Cisco UCS Manager - SNMP for Critical & Major Faults (true or false)

Hi,

 

Has anyone created a SNMP GET rule in their favorite monitoring system for Cisco UCS Manager to look for Faults?

Specifically Critical and Major fault events?

Orjan

Re: Cisco UCS Manager - SNMP for Critical & Major Faults (true or false)

Hi @doctorouter,

Configuring SNMP for GETs on UCS is straightforward.

Log into UCSM.

Select Admin Tab > Communication Management > Communication Services

Select 'Enabled'

Enter a community string, contact and location.

Click Save.

Testing SNMP GET

Command line tools:

 (Built into most linux distros and OS X.  Can get NET SNMP for Windows command line http://www.net-snmp.org/)

 

Get one OID:

 

Snmpget -v 2c -c public 14.17.193.1 .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.5.0

 

Get all 'known values' starting at this OID and below (this is probably the simplest way to query a device for SNMP and return a ton of data):

 

Snmpwalk -v 2c -c public 14.17.193.1 .1

 More specific OIDs can be found here: 

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/unified_computing/ucs/sw/mib/b-series/b_UCS_MIBRef/b_UCS_MIBRef_chapter_0100.html

 

Please rate if you find it helpful.

Thanks @mojafri,

 

I've successfully configured and able to poll the device remotely with SNMP.

My question was more directed to Cisco UCS Fault Event collection with SNMP. From the link you referred to I can find the following rules I'm looking for, but it's SNMP TRAP, not SNMP GET:

 

Trap Description
cucsFaultActiveNotif This notification is generated by a Cisco UCS instance whenever a fault is raised.
The OID for this SNMP trap is .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.719.0.1.
cucsFaultClearNotif This notification is generated by a Cisco UCS instance whenever a fault is cleared.
The OID for this SNMP trap is .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.719.0.2.

 

I'm looking for the above for a SNMP GET.

 

regards,

Orjan

Hi @doctorouter,

You can use MIB objects and get the IOD using below link: 

https://snmp.cloudapps.cisco.com/Support/SNMP/do/BrowseOID.do?local=en

 

For faults use below MIB: 

ftp://ftp.cisco.com/pub/mibs/ucs-mibs/CISCO-UNIFIED-COMPUTING-FAULT-MIB.my

 

Parent OID for fault: 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.719.1.1

Let me know if that helps.
