I am working with SAM 6.1.1 and RHEL 6.x - I have all going well via net-snmp with the exception of two areas:
- NIC interface-statistics
- Disk statistics such as IOPs, Avg Queue Length, and Disk / sec transfer, etc.
Are these possible with SAM? I see conflicting answers in the forums. The same scenario exists for my ESX hosts.
Interface statistics for SNMP managed nodes is only available with NPM. It is not currently something SAM is capable of providing natively out-of-the-box. Similarly, disk I/O statistics aren't made available via NET-SNMP for logical volumes, and only some distros provide any disk IO statistics at all. Those can be collected today using SAM's SNMP monitor or NPM's Universal Device Poller.
