Testing SNMP polling

After you configure SNMP, you should verify that you can poll the cluster.

About this task

To poll a cluster, you need to use a third-party command such as snmpwalk.

Procedure

Send an SNMP command to poll the cluster from a different cluster.

For systems running SNMPv1, use the CLI command snmpwalk -v version -c community_string ip_address_or_host_name system to discover the contents of the MIB (Management Information Base).

In this example, the IP address of the cluster management LIF that you are polling is 10.11.12.123. The command displays the requested information from the MIB:
C:\Windows\System32>snmpwalk -v 1 -c public 10.11.12.123 system

SNMPv1-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: NetApp Release 8.3.0 
            Cluster-Mode: Tue Apr 22 16:24:48 EDT 2014
SNMPv1-MIB::sysObjectID.0 = OID: SNMPv1-SMI::enterprises.789.2.5
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (162644448) 18 days, 19:47:24.48
SNMPv1-MIB::sysContact.0 = STRING:
SNMPv1-MIB::sysName.0 = STRING: systemname.testlabs.com
SNMPv1-MIB::sysLocation.0 = STRING: Floor 2 Row B Cab 2
SNMPv1-MIB::sysServices.0 = INTEGER: 72

For systems running SNMPv2c, use the CLI command snmpwalk -v version -c community_string ip_address_or_host_name system to discover the contents of the MIB (Management Information Base).

In this example, the IP address of the cluster management LIF that you are polling is 10.11.12.123. The command displays the requested information from the MIB:
C:\Windows\System32>snmpwalk -v 2c -c public 10.11.12.123 system

SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: NetApp Release 8.3.0 
            Cluster-Mode: Tue Apr 22 16:24:48 EDT 2014
SNMPv2-MIB::sysObjectID.0 = OID: SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.789.2.5
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (162635772) 18 days, 19:45:57.72
SNMPv2-MIB::sysContact.0 = STRING:
SNMPv2-MIB::sysName.0 = STRING: systemname.testlabs.com
SNMPv2-MIB::sysLocation.0 = STRING: Floor 2 Row B Cab 2
SNMPv2-MIB::sysServices.0 = INTEGER: 72

For systems running SNMPv3, use the CLI command snmpwalk -v 3 -a MD5 or SHA -l authnopriv -u username -A password ip_address_or_host_name system to discover the contents of the MIB (Management Information Base).

In this example, the IP address of the cluster management LIF that you are polling is 10.11.12.123. The command displays the requested information from the MIB:
C:\Windows\System32>snmpwalk -v 3 -a MD5 -l authnopriv -u snmpv3 
       -a password123 10.11.12.123 system

SNMPv3-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: NetApp Release 8.3.0 
       Cluster-Mode: Tue Apr 22 16:24:48 EDT 2014
SNMPv3-MIB::sysObjectID.0 = OID: SNMPv3-SMI::enterprises.789.2.5
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (162666569) 18 days, 19:51:05.69
SNMPv3-MIB::sysContact.0 = STRING:
SNMPv3-MIB::sysName.0 = STRING: systemname.testlabs.com
SNMPv3-MIB::sysLocation.0 = STRING: Floor 2 Row B Cab 2
SNMPv3-MIB::sysServices.0 = INTEGER: 72
