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.7220.127.116.11.25.0 -H <IP> -s "\"The system's global status is normal. \""
This is nothing other than doing a
snmpget -v 1 -c public <IP> enterprises.718.104.22.168.25.0
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!
Can't anybody help here?
