What can Observer’s SNMP console tell me about a problem switch?
After you have narrowed down a problem to a particular switch, Observer Suite lets you easily look up any SNMP-supported statistic or registered value to further diagnose the problem.
1. Click a device in the SNMP device list to expand the tree of available SNMP objects included in the request file for that device.
You can select a different request file in the Probe or Device Properties dialog, which is available by right-clicking on the SNMP device.
To add or change charts, tables, and forms within a request files, use Observer Suite's MIB Editor, which is described in Adding triggers based on SNMP chart values.
2. Click any chart or other request file item in the tree to display data in the agent information window. For example, the supplied request file for a Cisco 2900-3500 XL switch returns the Utilization by Port Per Sec chart.
3. If you have opened multiple charts, use the tabs at the bottom of the agent information window to browse the open request file results.
