does Nedi handle MIBs
« on: June 12, 2013, 10:48:56 AM »
We have many Allied Telesis Switches several models like AT8000 and x600.
I have MIB Files for the Swithches and can discover the Infos i want e.g. with a MIB Browser.

Does Nedi handle MIB Files?
At the DefGen i only can use the OIDs.

We don't like MIB files ;) Ok, maybe it's just me, but rather than compiling MIBs you simply fill the required OIDs into Defgen and off you go...

I understand, it's not always easy to find the correct OID, but definitely a lot less overhead.

Hi Remo,

AFAIK, every SNMP software uses OID, even if it seems to use MIBs.
All I know "compile" MIBs to obtain OID.

The nice thing in MIBs is that (usually) every parameters is (more or less) self explanatory.

The hard thing in NeDi is to find the right OID to catch the wanted parameter.
Instead is (more) easy to find it in MIBs, but how then translate it as a OID?

Anyway, I know that have all MIBs needed is a nightmare, and futher is to have the right ones to compile coherently...

... only a matter of academic interest...

:)

I dont like them to, but it is much easyer find some things with mibs.
So is it possible to get custom fields in a .def File?

e.g.: We have a Swicthblade with some Modules i want to see. There are SerialNumbers, Fans and Temperatures i want to see and monitor.
Is it possible to get this in nedi?

I'm afraid I never really managed to read mibs :) Ok, compilers help, but I find often real devices behaving differently in real life...

Not sure I understand your question tuxfrog? Did you watch the Defgen tutorial? NeDi is limited on how many custom values it can read, but pretty flexible otherwhise...

Yes i watched it.
I got the Modules shown in Nedi but.....
I want to get the Vlaues for Fan Speed an Temp. The Switchblad have many Fans and Temp-Sensors and i can not see how to get this into Nedi.
I only can create one custom field!?

Ok, got ya now. Unfortunately NeDi is not that flexible (yet). You get 1 Temperature and 1 custom value. I've forseen a module status field in the db, but it's not implemented yet...

He...that's no Problem.
For all i have to say, NeDi is a great piece of Software.
I does what i want to do in an easy and comfortable manner.

Thank you for that!

UR welcome...and I didn't say it's not going to happen. The question has been asked before and I'm pondering a way to at least add more custom graphs to a device. We'll se...
