Environment

Situation

What kinds of threshold checks are available with the NetIQ AppManager for SNMP module?
What kinds of threshold checks are available with the SNMP Generic Toolkit?

Resolution

There are two general types of threshold checks available in the Generic Scripts: Numeric and String. The SNMP Value Types OCTET STRING, IPADDRESS and OBJECTID are considered to be strings; all other value types are considered to be numeric.

For Numeric Values, the following threshold checks can be selected:

  • Maximum Value Threshold
  • Minimum Value Threshold
  • Numeric Equality Threshold
  • Numeric Inequality Threshold

For String Values, the following threshold checks can be selected:

  • String Equality
  • String Inequality
  • String Case Sensitive/Insensitive

If any selected threshold is violated, an AppManager Event will be created for the threshold crossing. The Severity of the event can be configured with the Generic Severity parameter in each KS. If more than one SNMP Value is being retrieved, the SNMP Module treats them all as independent data points and the specified thresholds are applied to each Value independently.
