Symmetrix OID MIB Values - SNMP

Jump to solution

I am looking to monitor my Symmetrix arrays using the Solutions Enabler storevntd.  I am successfully sending traps to our Network Management System, currently NetCool, but we are not able to set the severity properly.  I'm looking for the OID Tree that is being used so I can validate which OID is for severity and what the severity corresponds to.  Below is an example of what NetCool is receiving from the storevntd.

Enterprise: 1.3.6.1.4.1.1139.3

Object:1.3.6.1.3.94.1.11.1.3.80.6.4.130.222.184.230.128.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1 Value:1

Object:1.3.6.1.3.94.1.11.1.7.80.6.4.130.222.184.230.128.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1 Value:2

Object:1.3.6.1.3.94.1.11.1.8.80.6.4.130.222.184.230.128.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1 Value:0.0

Object:1.3.6.1.3.94.1.11.1.9.80.6.4.130.222.184.230.128.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1 Value:Symmetrix 000192603034 UNKNOWN 15 : Symmetrix External Lock has been acquired.

Object:1.3.6.1.3.94.1.11.1.6.80.6.4.130.222.184.230.128.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1 Value:8

Object:1.3.6.1.3.94.1.6.1.20.80.6.4.130.222.184.230.128.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0 Value:000192603034

Object:1.3.6.1.3.94.1.6.1.3.80.6.4.130.222.184.230.128.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0 Value:11

Object:1.3.6.1.4.1.1139.3.8888.1.0 Value:2

Object:1.3.6.1.4.1.1139.3.8888.2.0 Value:1209

Object:1.3.6.1.4.1.1139.3.8888.3.0 Value:1038

Object:1.3.6.1.4.1.1139.3.8888.4.0 Value:15

Symmetrix uses the FCMGMT MIB. MIB stands for Management Information Base. OID (the entries in the MIB) are Object IDentifiers.

In your example the severity is INFO.

You can work it out in the following way:

The overview of how the MIB is structured can be found here:

http://www.oidview.com/mibs/0/FCMGMT-MIB.html

From here you can see that Object:1.3.6.1.3.94.1.11.1.6 is known as "connUnitEventSeverity".

Download the .zip file from the above address and you find:

FcEventSeverity ::= INTEGER {

unknown (1),

emergency (2),

alert (3),

critical (4),

error (5),

warning (6),

notify (7),

info (8),

debug (9),

mark (10) -- All messages logged

So...

Object:1.3.6.1.3.94.1.11.1.6.80.6.4.130.222.184.230.128.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1 Value:8

translates to INFO in the above table.

Not sure if I can help or not, but I dont mind trying to...

So, what exactly do the acronyms OID and MIB stand for?

Maybe I can do some searching for you.

Thanks for the assistance.  That is what I had thought, but I'm no expert when it comes to SNMP and I just wasn't sure.  I also found this web site to provide a little more info and let you browse the MIB without having to download the zip file. http://ipmsupport.solarwinds.com/mibs_byoidtree.aspx?oid=
