    No CPU and Mem showing for AIX boxes under node details

    Donald_Francis

      I have several AIX boxes and while I can look at the CPU and Mem load in the System Manager client or by hovering over the node but if I go into node details I do not see it.  Works just fine for any of the other hundreds of nodes I have just AIX appears to have this behaviour.

      There are no filters or account limitations inplay.

          HI Donald, Did you ever get an answer for this issue?....

            Here is what I found out and did to resolve this issue.

            With the OS upgrade, IBM switched to SNMPv3 as the default. You need to switch back to SNMPv1. The following is how this is done.

            Modify SNMPD.CONF file
            vi /etc/snmpd.conf

            logging         file=/usr/tmp/snmpd.log         enabled
            logging         size=0                          level=0

            trap            public          127.0.0.1       1.2.3   fe      # loopback


            smux            1.3.6.1.4.1.2.3.1.2.1.2         gated_password  # gated
            smux            1.3.6.1.4.1.2.3.1.2.2.1.1.2     dpid_password   #dpid


            snmpd smuxtimeout=200 #muxatmd
            smux 1.3.6.1.4.1.2.3.1.2.3.1.1 muxatmd_password #muxatmd

             

            ps -ef |grep mib

            >-root-> ps -ef |grep mib
                root   9626  12954   0   Mar 12      -  1:22 /usr/sbin/aixmibd
                root  17564  12954   0   Mar 12      -  0:20 /usr/sbin/hostmibd
                root  18620  12954   0   Mar 12      -  0:21 /usr/sbin/snmpmibd

            Switch from SNMPv3 to SNMPv1. This will auto link necassary files
            ls -l /usr/sbin/snmp*
            /usr/sbin/snmpv3_ssw -1

            Created file
            vi ChangeSNMP
            ./ChangeSNMP

            #! /bin/bsh
            chssys -s hostmibd -a "-c <Community String>"
            chssys -s aixmibd -a "-c <Community String>"
            stopsrc -s snmpd
            stopsrc -s aixmibd
            stopsrc -s dpid2
            stopsrc -s hostmibd
            startsrc -s snmpd
            startsrc -s dpid2
            startsrc -s hostmibd
            startsrc -s aixmibd
            exit

            chmod 755 Change*
            ./ChangeSNMP

            Validate switch to SNMPv1

            ps -ef | grep mib

            Change bind to bind4 (This forces it to use IPv4 instead of IPv6 first)
