Monitor HP Switch 5412zl (J8698A) Modules via SNMP

Hello everyone,

We use HP Switch 5412zl (J8698A) with 12 Switch modules

I'm running Icinga to monitor the Switch.
Modules G J9534A failed after thunderstorms. The others Modules were ok
But the Swith modules were not monitored.
Is there the possibility to query via SNMP status (up / down) of built-in switch modules?

Thx

Hello @monitorjunkie ,

 

Yes, it can be monitored via snmp on monitoring tool.

You wil get notification/alert during hardware failure.

Thanks!

Hello  akg7

Can you explain it to me?

Which OID or MIB I find the notification.

Under OID HPICFNOTIFICATIONS 1.3.6.1.4.1.11.2.14.12 I find nothing

Thx

Hello,

If you want to query the status of the modules you can use the OID entOperState 1.3.6.1.2.1.131.1.1.1.3 from the entity state MIB. Value 3 means that the entity is operable, 2 means totaly unoperable.

http://www.circitor.fr/Mibs/Html/E/ENTITY-STATE-MIB.php

INTEGER unknown(1), disabled(2), enabled(3), testing(4)

 

Represents the possible values of operational states. A value of 'disabled' means the resource is totally inoperable. A value of 'enabled' means the resource is partially or fully operable. A value of 'testing' means the resource is currently being tested and cannot therefore report whether it is operational or not. A value of 'unknown' means that this resource is unable to report operational state.

 

You can use it together with the OIDs entPhysicalDescr or entPhysicalIndex from the ENTITY MIB (rfc2737.mib) to identify which module corresponds to which index.

Something very helpful is the commands walkmib and getmib followed by an OID on the CLI of the switch. This commands allow you to test particular OID directly on the CLI of the switch . You can use the OID in numeric or textual form.
