How to do a series of tests for SNMP walk

I’m using a software network manager, that gathers SNMP data from the system devices, but for some reasons an SNMP error occurred. I was advised to do a series of tests for some plans with SNMP walk.

How can I do that? Are there any suggestions?

Hello Daisy,

For a series of test or system monitoring via SNMP walk, you need to configure and install net-SNMP.

Click the link to download net-snmp:

  • Install net-snmp after downloading. If you are going to install it via sources, the file configuration  snmpd.conf should go in / user / local / share /snmp;
  • Edit / user / local / share /snmp/snmp.conf for configuration;
  • Your access control should be simple and not complicated.
  • Add entries to the disk section to be able to monitor disk space;
  • Add entries to proc section;
  • You can then start up SNMP by running / user / local / sbin /snmpd;
  • Restart your computer for changes to take effect.

You do not need to add special directives in snmpd.conf for processor or CPU memory status.

Check these points to configure any SNMP services for your system devices:

  • Check that you have entered a valid port number for your devices.
  • If you are using a service then you need to get all the settings required.
  • You need to check the outgoing and incoming connections.
  • You need to check the outgoing and incoming service port numbers.
  • Check that all devices use the same protocol for the service you are using.
  • If you are running some devices then check that these devices can run on that software.
  • Check all the connections and try to detect any hardware fault.
  • Make sure that your network is effective.
