EVA 4400 SNMP Monitoring

I'm wanting to monitor our 4400 with an SNMP polling program. I've downloaded the MIB from Command View, and found that I want to monitor OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.136.1.3.1.2.1.4 (Storage Cell Status).

When I walk this OID - or anywhere near this OID - I get no response. The Command View server is responding fine to other normal OIDs.

Is there anything I need to enable/install to get this functionality? I presumed because the OID is listed in the MIB that it would just be there.

Thanks in advance for your help

Regards,
Ben.

Re: EVA 4400 SNMP Monitoring

Hello,

the EVA won't answer SNMP requests. The CV server is answering it. Can you try to walk the OID on the CV server itself?

Best regards,

Sorry I wasn't clear. I was walking the CV server, just meant it was replying for normal server OIDs, but not the EVA-specific ones. Any other ideas? :)

Hi Ben,

Did you get any further with this as we are having the same problem.

Re: EVA 4400 SNMP Monitoring

Unfortunately no I didn't get anywhere of any used with SNMP.

What I ended up doing was scheduling a SSSU script which outputs the status of everythign to a text file, then did my alerting off keywords/strings within that text file.

The SSSU script (just a textfile) is the following:

SET OPTIONS NOCOMMAND_DELAY
SET OPTIONS ON_ERROR=HALT_ON_ERROR
SELECT MANAGER 127.0.0.1 username=user password=pass
SELECT SYSTEM "EVANAME"
LS SYS EVA2
CHECK REDUNDANCY
LS DISKSHELF FULL
LS DISK_GROUP FULL
LS DISK FULL
LS CONTROLLER FULL

Cheers,
Ben.

Sorry where it says EVA2 it should be EVANAME instead.

Re: EVA 4400 SNMP Monitoring

Thanks for the Info. Will pursue the SNMP
a bit longer as it seems strange they define
the MIB and then the products snmpd doesnt actually support it. If I find anything I will post back.

Re: EVA 4400 SNMP Monitoring

Please do let me know. I spoke to HP at several levels and they all told me that the EVA (CV appliance) only supports sending traps, not querying OIDs. Would be interesting to find otherwise!

Cheers,
Ben.

Re: EVA 4400 SNMP Monitoring

Hi

first of all you can get the command View MIB 

you can get it from command view system options - Configure even tnotification - get MIB

also if you install IRS standart on your command view server

it installs WEBES which can translate EVA events and send SNMP traps or SMTP mail

you can download from HP
