Adding anything to the UnDP doesn't mean you are going to see options in the List Resources. This just gives you the ability to poll for vendor specfiic information that NPM isn't getting. If you are not seeing anything, then likely the device doesn't suport the MIBs that NPM uses to poll for this information. If you use the PollerChecker tool in the NPM install directory on the server you can confirm this. If this is the case, then I'd recommend using the snmpwalk,exe tool and submit a feature request along with the output of that walk requesting native support for the device.
nimble MIB doesn't follow MIB2 if i can trust my memory, and is entirely in the private branch (18.104.22.168.4.1) of the MIB tree. NPM is definitely not going after these OIDs out of the box. So, you are definitely on the right path in using custom pollers (universal device poller).
If you are new to SNMP, you will need to understand SNMP GET, GET NEXT and GET TABLE at minimum. To oversimplify it, Get and get next is used to poll a single value by querying for a specific OID. Get table is sort of like querying all the rows for a given column in a spreadsheet. So, the OID for a get table identifies the table column.
with that said, use the snmpwalk.exe directly under the NPM install folder on the npm server. Do a MIB walk and reverse engineer the OIDs you need from there. You can also attach the MIB walk output (zip it if it's too big) and let's see what nimble can provide.
So I wanted to update everyone on this with the latest info I've been able to extract from both parties thus far.
From some folks at Solarwinds I spoke with they are just waiting on Nimble to add to their API performance data.
They have worked with Nimble and Nimble has everything they need its just a matter of adding this to the API.
I am still waiting on hearing back from Nimble BUT i would strongly recommend that anyone that wants this feature set in Storage Manager get their Nimble Account rep and ask them what the hold up is. If enough people contact their Nimble rep you can be sure t
Please let your Nimble rep know to add your name to the Request for enhancement item (RFE ID: AS-52079) and how important it is to you!
This is to get Nimble to provide the needed data for Solarwinds Storage manager to work with nimble arrays!!
