SNMP monitoring in Dynatrace Managed

kirill_stepanov

Hello,

I have a network device that I would like to monitor using the SNMP protocol via Dynatrace Managed. What ways do you know to do it?
I found an example script on Github that selects properties and scalar metrics from a configured network device and sends them to Dynatrace

https://github.com/Dynatrace/dynatrace-api/tree/master/snmp

Has anyone tried to do this and what was the result?
If so, where and how is the information displayed in Dynatrace?

Thanks

I think for this purpose you need to create Custom Network Device:

and push custom metrics via API:

Hi Kiril,

Check my answer to this at:

I have developed a generic SNMP monitoring extension that you could use or adapt for this.
The information is displayed under - Technologies -> SNMP -> Device group -> Device name, but you can also use this data in custom charts.

Thanks,
Brayden


Thank you very much )


Hey @Brayden N. Holy cow your plugin is awesome.

With your kwnoledge, do you think it could be possible to check the Devices(IP's) to wich a Router is connected and create other devices as touchpoints? Kinda like create a smartscape of network devices...


Thanks Dante,

I'm not sure on how to trace router connections in this way.
Dynatrace does have an API to add custom device endpoints though. So If you could somehow walk these connections, then you could add each device.


Awesome. Was trying to do the same, but you have done it.

Thanks a lot
