CISCO MIBS and 3rd party Management Apps

I have a customer that wants to monitor some of their cisco routers.They don't want or need a lot of Cisco works would be over kill...

But they use Compaq insite Manager XE v2.0 which supports importing of 3rd party MIbs .....I was wondering if any one has tried this.

I tried a few from cisco bt ran onto a few problems...

I then tried some other OEM Mibs and they worked a ok....SO its seems to be the cisco ones...

Any help is much appreciated

Re: CISCO MIBS and 3rd party Management Apps

Be careful... Make sure you are following the correct compilation order as some MIBS are dependent on objects defined in other MIBS. So, compile the top level MIBS first and then others. You can usually tell which MIBS are required first by looking at the imports section. I have also found that the compilers will sometimes tell you what error it ran into and on what line within the MIB. This helps, as I have been able to repair errors in the distributed text Mibs and compile them normally. If you are able to successfully implement any data collect utilizing Compaq CIM XE by modifying the Data Collection Tables in the database, let me know. BTW See how much HP NNM costs for a 250 Node License. This may be worth your while.
