Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Polling - AWS Elemental Statmux

This is version 2.20 of the AWS Elemental Statmux documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Statmux and AWS Elemental Live Documentation.

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Polling

Rather than passively receiving SNMP traps from AWS Elemental Statmux, you can actively poll the SNMP interface.

You can interact with AWS Elemental Statmux using a variety of network management systems. AWS Elemental products ship with the Net-SNMP (http://www.net-snmp.org/) command-line tools to access the SNMP interface while logged into the system directly or over SSH. Examples in this document are given using net-snmp commands.

To set up SNMP polling

  1. Either disable the node firewall, or enable external access to SNMP interface.

  2. Query either individual variables, or the entire SNMP interface.

    To query individual variables

    Use the Net-SNMP tools to query variables as follows:

    snmpget -c elemental_snmp -v2c -m <MIB> localhost MIBvariable
    snmpget -c elemental_snmp -v2c -m ELEMENTAL-MIB localhost serviceStatus

    For a list of MIBs and their variables, see Management Information Bases (MIBs) in AWS Elemental Statmux.
