I am considering using cisco route manager. I noticed it uses snmp, does that mean it can talk to any router using snmp or just cisco routers? Most of ours are cisco, but we have a few hp routing switches that we would like to track also. If it only does cisco, does anyone know of a similar product that will just talk generic snmp?
SNMP is a standards based protocol, if the operating software of a device supports SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), you can use SNMP put/get software to collect a lot of information, but only as much information as the equipment vendor details in it's SNMP imlementation.
We use CiscoWorks (not free) and have really drilled down into some very detailed SNMP traps (conditions) that are triggered to send to a syslog server. really works great. But I would recommend a pretty detailed research effort on understanding SNMP. It would be a lot to have this group detail the entire workings of SNMP.
I'll check out that product. I wasn't looking for a discourse on SNMP, just curious if route manager would pull routes from a HP switch. For example, I have used ipplan to pull routes from cisco routers, hp switches, and smoothwall firewalls with snmp. So the traps are already there on the devices I want to poll. And I just wanted to know if the cisco products would do the same.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3.
16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted
