VMware vRealize Operations Management Pack for SNMP | 22 APR 2020 | Build 16059526

What's in the Release Notes

The release notes cover the following topics:

Introduction

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a standard Internet protocol for managing devices on IP networks. The SNMP adapter is an embedded adapter for vRealize Operations Manager that collects metrics from devices that support SNMP. These devices typically include routers, switches, servers, workstations, and printers.

What's New

The SNMP adapter introduces the following new features:

  • Support for SNMP v2c and v3
  • Auto-discovery of SNMP managed devices
  • Support for common MIBs and custom MIBs
  • Availability of predefined MIB Statistics

Compatibility

For compatibility between products, please refer to the VMware Product Interoperability Matrices.

Known Issues

  • Collection interval increases if more devices are added and if the IPs don't match with the credentials.

    While configuring the adapter, if you provide Device IP pools that have IPs that don't match with the credentials, then the collection duration increases with the device count.

    Workaround: Have the device IP pool across multiple adapter instances. Create multiple adapter instances of the same type but with a smaller set of IP addresses that match with credentials.

  • On test connection failure, the adapter collection status does not set to Warning

    When the SNMP adapter test connection fails and you save the adapter, the adapter collection status still shows as data receiving. Due to invalid credentials, the adapter instance does not create the device object but  the SNMP adapter instance will remain in the data receiving status.

    Workaround: NA
