SNMP Manager - slightly off topic

Unanswered Question
Jun 16th, 2008


I am just wondering what SNMP managers (or any management facility including SMI-S/CIM systems) are being used by people with MDS switches. I am a big fan of Openview but its a bit of an overkill if we need something just as a SNMP Manager (i.e, something that displays mibs, reacts to traps/events, etc) in the storage arena. I have a wide range of SAN related systems that are designed to send traps with the Cisco switches offering the most information.

Inch obviously has his favourite.

Any thoughts would be most welcome..


I have this problem too.

Cisco routers can only send SNMP requests to the management station. They cannot receive and process SNMP requests from other routers Or any other network devices.

Here is an SNMP FAQ which explains the possible SNMP configurations on the Cisco devices,
