Add a Custom OID

The following table indicates the amount of information derived from the MIB, but to configure the SNMP check we would simply require the OID and Expected Value in addition to the Hostname/IP Address, Port and Community.

Source MIB

CPQHLTH-MIB: Compaq Server Health Features

SNMP object type

cpqHeThermalCondition

Description

This value specifies the overall condition of the system's thermal environment

OID

1.3.6.1.4.1.232.6.2.6.1.0

Expected Value

Value

Status

1

other

2

ok

3

degraded

4

failed

To employ this OID in the Agent select Other in the drop-down product box and enter the following:

Name

Compaq Server Health Thermal Condition

OID

1.3.6.1.4.1.232.6.2.6.1.0

Operation (check passes where Expected Value)

=

Expected Value

2

As 2 is ok any other value may indicate the hardware is compromised in some fashion and this failure will be reported on the Dashboard and an Alert generated.

To avoid any OID identification problems, please exclude the leading period when entering an OID in the SNMP Check. For example, enter 1.2.3.4.5.6.7 not .1.2.3.4.5.6.7
