SNMP and OIB ?

Post by sbaumgartner » Nov 08, 2012 2:25 pm

Hello

I really new to this kind of topic, we use Veaam B&R in out enviroment and i really love this software but now i strugle a bit with out Monitoring tool and Veeam.
We got GFI Webmonitoring that uses OIBs how can i get the right OIBs from Veeam to monitor our backup jobs ? I only found the mib file in the veeam directory.

Thank you all

Hello,

Can you please clarify what OIBs you're referring to?

Thanks!

I found only the mib file too. Is too simple imho, it has the same oib for every backup job result (success, warning, failed) so you also have to do string parsing to read the effective result of the job. This is an improvement Veeam should consider in the future.

Oh, we did it via GUI on Centreon, a web interface for Nagios. Basically you add the common OIB, then you add a string processing activity, and you scan the trap for "success", "warning" and "failed" to separate the three different results.
I do not know how this has been then translated by Centreon on the underlying Nagios.

[MERGED] SNMP & OID for GFI Max

Post by GertPCC » Dec 13, 2012 4:47 pm

Hello,

We would like to be able to monitor our backups with GFI Max.

We can add an SNMP check in our dashboard.

Image


I have enabled SNMP service in Windows 2012 Server and set the SNMP notifications in the backup jobs.


I'm just wondering which OID I need to use to be able to check if the backup fails or succeeds. For example, a standard HP Proliant Raid controller has an OID value of: 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.3.1.3.0


I had a look at following code in the MIB file but this is all new to me so some advice would be welcome :)

Code: Select all

VEEAM-MIB DEFINITIONS ::= BEGIN

IMPORTS
   enterprises
      FROM RFC1155-SMI
   TRAP-TYPE 
      FROM RFC-1215
   OBJECT-TYPE

In order to browse the content of .mib-file you have to use specifically designed mib-readers, not just text editors.
For example, you can utilize this free one, called mbrowse.

In its GUI:

•Open VeeamBackup.mib file
•Go to the search window
•And search backupjobresult in order to see corresponding OID

Otherwise, you can easily make use of my own search results:

Code: Select all

Object Identifier  - .1.3.6.1.4.1.3102.1.1.103
Hope this helps.

Thanks.

v.Eremin, this is indeed a great help.

But now I need to find the matching operator and test value in order to let our monitoring software see it as a succeeded backup.

GFI does not have the possibility to import an already existent mib file? I know other software able to do it, and sounds like a feature a monitoring software should have.

Maybe you can ask the vendor directly? No OIB import is not nice at all for a monitoring system...
