Monitor global state via SNMP from external


I used to monitor the global state of my filers via SNMP from external monitoring system nagios/icinga like this:

check_snmp -P 1 -C public -o enterprises.789. -H <IP> -s "\"The system's global status is normal. \""

This is nothing other than doing a

snmpget -v 1 -c public <IP> enterprises.789.

and comparing the output string with "The system's global status is normal." and give a alert if there comes a different string.

But looks like this does not work against ontap 8.2.1.

How can I monitor the global state from remote via SNMP.

And no, I do not want to use traps.

Thanks for any tip!
