SNMP OIDs support in Netapp c-mode



I have been new to netapp devices. I have been working on a system which monitors the netapp devices. Till 7-mode my software monitors the netapp devices well. However after we have started working with c-mode devices we are encountering some problems:

1. When we do snmpwalk for ndmp OIDs, it returns error: This may be that the OIDs( are not implemented on c-mode devices however at below link "http://people.teamix.net/~bu/81ClusterModeCLReference/CLI-Commands-NetApp-81-Cluster-Mode.pdf" I have seen that CLI exists.

2. Simillar issue I am observing with snapvault, nfs, cifs and snapmirror OIDs.

Do somebody have any idea about this or can somebody share any reason fro the above?

Is there any document or some link where I can find the information?

Thanks in advance.




The SNMP OIDs are different for 7 and Cluster-Mode. This KB article (https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?page=content&id=3013220) should help explain the differences.


Hi Mrinal

We're only getting partial responses from a C-Mode cluster. Which IP do these requests have to be sent to? The management IP or the cluster IP address?

Thanks, Holger


The cluster interfaces are only accessible to nodes participating in the cluster.

You can send the request to the node management or cluster management LIFs of the cluster.


Hi all

The article mentioned shows clearly, that a cmode cluster will respond to the filesystem OID request. The responses though from a regular system and a cmode are different.

For those coding based on the snmp output, just be aware of it.

Best regards, Holger


has this article moved?

I can't seem to find a c-mode equivalent for miscGlobalStatus, miscGlobalStatusMessage, fsOverallStatus or fsStatusMessage

Same here, my monitoring SNMP based scripts for 7-mode are broken on cDOT =(


any updates? need to know how to snmp query in c-mode.




Hi all,


please have a look at those documents:





Let me know if that helped.

The snmp setting in c-mode have done.

I want to query global status, nfs status just like 7-mode I can query, but it's not work in c-mode.




hi Uitox,


can you elaborate a bit on what you are trying to do.

Can you post the error message you are seeing?

What version of ONTAP are you using?

I can add to this, working on this same issue now.  We had a customer move from a FAS3020 in 7-mode to a 8020 in c-mode.  Monitoring was working previously for the global status but since the cutover nagios was reporting OID not found. I was able to pull the MIB from the device by going to t http(s)://cluster-mgmt-ip/spi and downloading it.  I imported this into a MIB browser and located the misc global status OID which is however a snmpget to the cluster (both nodes and the VIP) results in a response of:


Error in packet
Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
Failed object: .


It's almost as if the filer has no idea that the OID exists.  In fact I did a SNMPWALK on the device and output that to a file and don't find that OID at all.  In fact there appears to be nothing under the .2 identifier yet it's listed in the MIB. (


What gives?  How do you measure anything in the misc category per the MIB as they are all  This is Ontap 8.3 btw. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks!







the same issu like 


I want to know Netapp hardware status via my monitor server.

The monitor server uses snmp to get all device status.




Any input on this?  About to file a support case for the same. 


Hi all,


I asked a subject matter expert to have a look at it.

Hope he will join the conversation.


Opening a case can not be wrong, since it gives you a SLA for your request.

Any chance someone has had the opportunity to look at this yet?


Same problem here.

I just downloaded the latest filer mib from here http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/mib/, looked at the "traps.dat" file for "miscGlobalStatus" which says it's "." but that OID just doesn't exist.



      Just wondered if anyone had any updates on this issue (v8.3 cDOT), I have checked the netapp traps.dat and mib files from the support site and they show the OID for GlobalStatus


miscGlobalStatus                         snmp.
miscGlobalStatusMessage                  snmp.


However they dont seem to exist


# snmpget -v 1 -c public X.X.X.X   .
Error in packet
Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
Failed object: SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.789.





same problem here. Looks like SNMP on NetApp is dead.
