Enable the SNMP Subagent

Enable the SNMP Subagent (SNMP-SA) from a system console to retrieve information about the hardware status of an appliance.

Use of the SNMP Subagent is not supported on the WBG-4500-E, WBG-5000-F, and WBG-5500-F appliance models. For the model F appliances, you can work with another tool instead, see Retrieve Hardware Status Information with the SuperDoctor5 (SD5) Tool.

To enable the SNMP Subagent, proceed as follows:

  1. Make sure you have configured the SNMP settings on the user interface of the appliance.

  2. From a system console, log on to the appliance, using SSH.

  3. Run the following command:


    The SNMP Subagent is enabled.

    You can disable the SNMP Subagent using the snmpsa-disable command.

When the SNMP Subagent is enabled, hardware status information is available under the SNMP protocol.

An overview of the available information is provided in MIB (Management Information Base) files, which are located in the file system of the monitored appliance. The path to these files is /usr/local/snmpsa/mibs.
