Prime Infrastructure - Custom SNMP Template

Unanswered Question

Has anyone managed to get the Custom SNMP Template to work in PI 2.x? I can't get it to present any relevant data (yes, with generic ​dashlets).

I've tried to pull CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB and other third-party MIBs with no luck.


I'm starting to suspect this is yet another not-so-ready-feature of PI....

Hi Johan,


I am having some trouble with Custom SNMP also. I have imported the mibs and deployed the template but i'm not getting any information back. Is the information supposed to display in Device Work Center?

Thanks Afroz,


Do you know if there is an option for alerting on 3rd party polling?

Can you explain more or little specific about what you want to achieve with 3rd party devices.

Simply if the 3rd party device goes down and polling fails an alert would be generated similar to a cisco router/switch to notify of an outage.

I am not sure about the alert but if  the devices is in managed state . you can do the SNMP polling after adding the respective MIB ,if required.
