Has anyone got SNMP working with Brocade-switches?
Which SNMP-probe should I use? And any specific configuration needed?
we have and we use snmpget and interface traffic with snmp v3 credenticals.
So I've tried the snmpget, and I can browse the MIB. My first try was a simple monitoring for one of the ports (up/down). Problem here is that it won't generate an alarm on the bus when I set the monitoring to generate an critical alarm when the port is up (value = 1) .
Am I doing this all wrong? or where do I get the alarm out on the bus?
that should be right. its pretty much the same way we have checks configured
Hmm strange. I can't get the alarm out on the bus
Where did you download the MIB's?
I got some of them from here

I'm getting this message on alot of objects (OIDs)
"No Such Object available on this agent at this OID"
I want to monitor CPU, Memory and link utilization. But doesn't seem to be the right OID or do I have to add them on the SAN-swtich?
My SAN-swtiches are:
When I browse the MIB on a switch I get couple of hundred different OIDs, but nothing on CPU, Memory and link utilization
I use a free tool from iReasoning called MibBrowser works well for browsing and walking mibs. Which mibs are you using, FE and FC Management?
I'm using the SNMPGET and browsing with that probe. I've downloaded and added the SW-MIB from that page that you recommended.
I find ALOT of OID's, but nothing about CPU, Memory and link utilization :/
I now testet the MIB browser from iResoning, but when I do a walk, there is only the OID-number. No name or description.
Error when I try to add the MIB, "SW-MIB" saying:
I'm not really good at this SNMP stuff
I found the easiest way was to use the SNMPTD probe, enable traps to be sent from the Brocade to the server with the SNMPTD probe. Load the Brocade mibs into the SNMPTD probe and receive traps.
Is there any way to test the traps? Or do I just have to wait until an error occur?
I don't think there is an option on the older Brocades, you used to have to take a port offline or pull a psu (on a redundant switch) to get it to generate a trap. On the newer Brocades I believe there is a CLI command that will let you generate a test trap called snmptraps?
Command goes something like snmptraps --send -trap_name cp-status-change-trap -ip_address 192.168.10.2
so you need to list trap name and the IP address of the trap reciever
Also it may be worth trying to use the interface_traffic probe as I think that would work as well
