I have recently purchased What's UP Gold.  I am trying to monitor my Brocade ICX6610 and ICX6450. Does anyone have any experience with SNMP OID for brocade using What's UP gold Premium?

I forgot to add - basic ping monitor works. But other monitors such as CPU and memory do not work.

Thanks in advance.

You may need to get the MIB from brocade.com.

Using snmpwalk on a linux system, you can poll and determine the OIDs to be used in the what's up gold app.

Does SNMP on What's Up Gold use the Brocade SNMP?

I tried to load the brocades MIB but it keeps failing.

What's up Gold comes with a MIB walker and explorer.  What do I look for?  * Sorry - new to this MIB/SNMP monitoring *

SNMP is SNMP. It pulls data based on  oid it then uses the MIB to convert the OID into the human readable hierarchy.
with the MIB walker, you would look for the data you want to collect.

Presumably you have something like: not a brocade FC switch.

iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.10.1 = Counter32: 1138705488
iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.10.2 = Counter32: 2632189055

iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.12.3 = Counter32: 17270310

iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.15.2 = Counter32: 0
iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.15.3 = Counter32: 16
iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.16.1 = Counter32: 1138705488

I'm not sure what the error you get when trying to add the MIB specific to brocade to GOLD.

 the MIB converts the iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1 to in this case If-MIB as the source MIB, then each subcategory is walked through.

Searching for MIB, 1.3.6.1.4.1.1588 seems to be Brocade root OID.

need to see what you have and what you want.
Linux based tools include translators that can convert the OID into a ......


http://community.whatsupgold.com/library/mib_repository/aerohive_mibs has a repository, brocade is not one of them.  You can look at the MIBs they have versus the one you got from brocade to see whether you can determine where the issue is coming from.

Older post on a similar topic, includes references that could help you locate and load the correct brocade MIB into whats up gold.

Point to http://community.brocade.com/t5/Documents/ct-p/Documents for information and then on obtaining the MIBs and loading them into the what's up gold.
