[ENG] 10.5. [DKSF 52/202.10 IU] What Is SNMP SETTER?

SNMP Setter is used as an output for the rule of the module «Logic» and is designed to set an SNMP OID variable on a remote device via an SNMP v1 protocol. In particular, it is possible to manage IO lines, relays, and other parameters of a remote NetPing device through a network.

To configure SNMP SETTER, there is a need to go to the page «LOGIC» of a device web interface:

A link on the page of a logic in a NetPing device

In the section «SNMP SETTER» the next parameters are configured:

Configuring SNMP Setter in a NetPing device

Channel number («SNMP 1», «SNMP 2») – this number is specified as an «output» of a logic rule.

Memo – is a random text up to 30 characters. On default: empty line

Address – is an IP address, where an SNMP SET command will be sent. On default: empty line

UDP Port – is a port that listens to an SNMP agent on a remote device. On default: 161

OID (.1.3.6...)  is an identifier of a variable that will be specified on a remote device. There is a need to indicate a full OID in a numeric notation, starting from .1.3… A list of variables is contained in the MIB file from a device in a specific format or in the documentation from a device. To browse the MIB file conveniently, as a tree and check the functions of variables, it is possible to use the freeware iReasoning MIB Browser or any other similar software. On default: .1.3.6.1.4.1.25728.5800.3.1.3.1

Сommunity  SNMP Community for write that is configured on a remote device. On default: empty line

«On» value (type Integer32) – is a value that will be written in OID on a remote device when evoking the action «On», by clicking the button «On» or through an «output» of a logic rule. A type of a value is 32-bit integer number with a sign. On default: 1

«Off» value (type Integer32) is a value that will be written in OID on a remote device when evoking the action «Off», by clicking the button «Off» or through an «output» of a logic rule. A type of a value is 32-bit integer number with a sign. On default: 0

Test it  when clicking the buttons «On» and «Off» a device immediately sends corresponding requests with the values «On» or «Off».

Status  several seconds after sending a request to set a variable, in the field «Status» a result «ОК» is displayed. This means that a confirmation is received and a variable is successfully set. «Timeout» means that a confirmation is not received yet. This can happen because of unavailability of a controlled device, its failure, incorrect IP address, port or community. A dash «-» means that an SNMP SETTER did not send a command yet or a status is not determined in a request. «Waiting for a response» means that an SNMP SETTER sent a command to a remote device and waits to receive a response. Other variants mean that a response with the error code has been received, a textual description of which is displayed in a status line.

After changing settings, click the button «Apply changes».

After configuring SNMP SETTER, there is a need to configure a rule in the module «Logic». It is possible to learn how to do this from the section «[ENG] 10.2. [DKSF 52/202.10 IU] How to Use the Module «Logic»?».
