I'm working on snmp stuff for sysmon, and want to get some
ideas of what types of things people would want to do.
I'm thinking of the following:
1 = sysUpTime.0/reboot (ie: alert if uptime decreases)
2 = high threshold (ie: alert if it goes above that value)
3 = low threshold (ie: alert if it goes below that value)
4 = range threshold (ie: specify a high+low and alert if
it is out of range
5 = exact threshold (ie: alert if it is != configured value)
The other question is what should happen when snmp times out?
should it generate an alert/email/page for that case?
There would obviously be no real support for getting strings
except for possibly a "change" type of alert. ie: alert me if the
value changes from the inital query value. But I would not be
inclined to implement any sort of string-type snmp query. If you
think i'm wrong, tell me why :)
Thanks again. Please send me any feedback you can think of.
