I'm new user in Osmius Tool.
I installed osmius in a server in the network. Then I installed a master agent on a device (a PC).
But when I try to create a new instance to monitor on the same device. The creation failed with the error message "you need to chose a group". But I do this before saving.
How can I create a new instance related to the same device and avoid this error. ?
Many thanks in advance
It's mandatory that an instance has an associated Group.
To create new instance you can read: http://osmius.com/osmwiki/doku.php?id=en:usuario:gestion:funcionalidad#creating_instances
In order to manage Instance Groups you can check this article: http://osmius.com/osmwiki/doku.php?id=en:usuario:seguridad:funcionalidad#group_of_instances
Thanks for your feedback
Thanks for your quick response.
I modified the groups instance management and this work fine. I can monitor other type of instance, but this was tested locally.
Would you please let me know how can I proceed to monitor a device. My knowledge is to do this we need to :
1. install a master agent in the device
2. create instance to be monitored
3. configure instance
4. associate a template management
5. associate instance to SLA, create service, associate instances to a service, create user defined events list, create user defined event.. etc.
Please let me know if there's a wrong in this procedure, if there's a lack anywhere.
P.S: can i monitor a Juniper switch ?
Thanks again and best regards.
Your procedure is ok except by the step 1. Please, note that you only have to install a Master Agent in the device if you want it to be intrusively monitored.
For example, you could monitor a Windows server remotely with the WMI Agent (non-intrusive monitoring) or with the Windows Master Agent (intrusive monitoring). We currently have Master Agents for Linux, Windows and Solaris.
You can read more about this topic here: http://osmius.com/osmwiki/doku.php?id=en:usuario:arquitectura
The Juniper Agent is available in Osmius Enterprise Edition. Though, you can monitor Juniper switches using the SNMP Agent by creating you own User Defined Events.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for your interest in Osmius.
Hi csilgoortiz and Manuel,
could you please help me to perform monitoring of a device other than a PC (a switch or router for example).
I tried several times to create instance (with type instance= snmp v& and v2, or ip instance with ping) but i didn't get any result. it could be great if there's a complete procedure to perform this.
Thanks in advance
ans best regards
Currently there isn't a procedure to perform SNMP monitoring.
What problems did you have with snmp instance and ip instance? What are you trying to monitor?
Manuel, i'm trying to monitor a 2960 Cisco Switch.
I performed all prerequesites on the switch (disable firewall, set community, …).
I created a new snmp instance on osmius.
but i still not have any data.
P.S: the ping test from services list tab work fine, but even the discovery of this device doesn't work (no information in the instance events)
Please tell me if there something missed o rbad configured.
I don't know what is the problem, we need more information.
What Osmius version have you installed?
Have you installed snmp and nmap pakages on the server?
Have you tested the Cisco Switch with snmpget and a known OID?
Are you checking Cisco switch from Osmius Server Host or from other Osmius Master?
In our labs we use a lot snmp feature and we never have detected this problem.
Many thanks for your response.
The problem is : I'm trying to monitor a Cisco switch from Osmius Server Host.
I tested the snmpget and this is the result :

Of course I installed snmp and nmap package.

Could you please help me.
Thanks again and best regards
I tryed to explain another thing in the last mail:
When pinging the instance from the Service List (List on the Left of the event page) , it work with a message Ping True OK etc
but there is no data in the graph of the availability-Ping reponse.
I'm available for further information.
Please can you try this and come again with the result:
1.- Try snmpget with 18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.6 OID (ciscoMemoryPoolFree)
2.- Try snmpget with 1.2.840.10006.300.43.1.2.188.8.131.5201 (from IEEE8023-LAG-MIB)
Other issue is pinging the instance from the Service List. It is a "on-demand action" so is not a monitoring event and it is not stored in data base, by this reason the graph of availability - ping response is empty.
Thanks Manuel for your response.
I understand the ping from Service List;)
1 - For the first OID (ciscoMemoryPoolFree) this is the output :
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks : (49921060) 5 days, 18:40:10.60
2 - For the second OID:
iso.2.840.10006.43.1.2.184.108.40.20601 = INTEGER: 32768
It looks like there's no problem with the device. What is your opinion ?
Sorry Manuel, I make a mistake. I chose another instead of the first OID.
the output is :
SNMPv2-SMI::dod.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.6 = No Such Object availabe on this agent at this OID.
It seems like the switch does not answer common OIDs.
You can try the following:
1.- Use snmpwalk with -v 1
2.- Use SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 as OID to walk. -> http://www.net-snmp.org/wiki/index.php/Snmpwalk
3.- Use DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance as OID to walk
4.- Use 22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.1.10. as OID to walk
5.- Use 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.1.8. as OID to walk
If any test is successful, we can select a group of OIDs to monitor your switch like an Osmius SNMP instance.
What about this issue? Any progress?
