I'm looking to include the snmpget probe data into our dynamic server view for the dashboard. The general setup I would like to use is the snmpget installed on one host and have it collect the information from servers we specify. What I have noticed however is that variables($TARGETROBOT) don't seem to pass into the the arguments for the snmpget or possibly others as I haven't tested that. The other option is to install this on each machine and have it use the $TARGETROBOT in the Robot Address field.
Has anyone used the snmpget for this type of function before? We are replacing a tool(Solarwinds Orion) which currently collects information from the snmpget such as server location, etc. We would like to allow for the same information to be displayed in the dashboards.
I will keep playing with this to see if I can find a solution. If so I will post about what I find.
