    Foundry Networks SNMP Support


      If possible can someone give me a step by step guide to monitoring a Foundry network switch with ipMonitor? I cannot get any SNMP data from any of our Foundry switches.

      SNMP is setup on the switch. I can walk its MIB with the SW tools. However, I cannot get ipMonitor to do basic things like report temperature, and cpu utilization.

          Are you able to get bandwidth monitors configured?   Also, are you walking the device using  SW tools from the same machine as ipMonitor or a different machine?

              Connectivity is not an issue. 

              For example I have bandwidth monitors setup for a Foundry FESX424. Unfortunately that’s the only thing I can setup. There does not seem to be any available CPU, memory, or temp information. I walked the mib’s again after I posted and I cannot find data relevant to the above mentioned. I guess this hardware is just too old… ?

              However, it does have the ability to send a SNMP trap if the switch starts to overheat. Is there a way to use that functionality to alert ipMonitor?

              Or maybe I’m just misunderstanding.
