    Trigger an alert if OID is not able to be polled

    bhilgenkamp_botw

      I'm trying to set up an alert to trigger if a static route is missing from a Cisco router. I'm able to get this information via SNMP and have created a custom poller for the OID  of  1.3.6.1.2.1.4.24.4.1.4 + the IP address. Example using 1.3.6.1.2.1.4.24.4.1.4.2.2.2.2

      IP-FORWARD-MIB::ipCidrRouteNextHop.2.2.2.2.255.255.255.255.0.10.125.249.250 = IpAddress: 10.125.249.250

       

      This returns the static route information and the next hop information (10.125.249.250). Now if I test for a static route that is not configured (1.1.1.1) I get the following:

      IP-FORWARD-MIB::ipCidrRouteNextHop.1.1.1.1 = No Such Instance currently exists at this OID

       

      I need to be able to set up an alert so that in this example an email would be sent if 1.1.1.1 is not configured on the router. Is there a way to trigger an alert in this type of scenario?
