Monitoring Backup Jobs with Snmp

Post by dominikRieder » Aug 24, 2018 10:21 am

Hello everyone,

I want to use the PRTG monitoring platform to monitor the backup jobs executed by veeam. For that I want to use Snmp with the .mib file of Veeam.
Since I am new to this, I might have a wrong understanding of some of the basics, so please bare with me.

The Prtg agend can be configured with a .mib (where I used the Veeam .mib file). The problem is that when I try to scan the data for a specifi OID I get the following response:
No such object (SNMP error # 222)
(this happens for all OIDs specified in the veeam .mib file)

I am quite sure that I setup the snmp services on both machines (the prtg and veeam machine) correctly, since I am able to read the ''device uptime'' with snmp.
Also I setup the Snmp Configuration in the Veeam B&R GUI with the IP of the reciver, Port and Community String.

It seems that the snmp configuration in veeam applies to sending data (i think trap notification or something?). But I tought that the .mib file tells where to find the data about backups on the machine veeam runs on. I hoped to use this mib file to actively read the data instead of receiving data from Veeam.

Any help with this problem is appreciated very much!

Best Regards,

Hello Dominik,

Veeam B&R can send SNMP traps to the desired SNMP receiver based on it's activity, check this article for proper global SNMP trap notification setup and let us know if that works for you. Cheers!
