Version 3.1 of snmptd probe has a new feature listed in the setup tab. It is a check box called "Enhance MIB Parsing". The documentation was also updated, that is good . My problem is that is really does not answer any questions, just raises more questions... The documentation says "Enhance MIB Parsing ..... Enables or disables the auto-populating of the Severity and Message text field. You can create a profile based on the severity and the description defined in the MIB."
Well, I must say this feature sounds fantastic. I really need this, but I need a section in the manual that explains how to implement this capability. The statement says "You can create a profile based on the severity and the description defined in the MIB." How do I create this profile? Is there an example of this type of profile? Is there some documentation somewhere that I am missing?
The problem that I have is that I have just added the traps for Nimble storage. The trap definition passes different severity levels to Nimsoft. I would like to pass the same severity levels onto Nimsoft. I understand I could go in and modify 208 different profiles, one for each trap, but that is a lot of work. My best thought on doing this is to use pre-processing rules.
So the thought of creating a generic MIB profile for Nimble that parses the MIB and forwards the data on to Nimsoft sounds great. But all I see is a way to enable enhanced MIB parsing, But there is no how-to information.
Has anybody used this feature? Is there any additional documentation?
