[ENG] 5.4. [DKSF 253.6 IU] What Is SNMP SETTER?
SNMP SETTER is used as an output of a logic module «Logic» and is designed to set an SNMP OID variable at a remote device via an SNMP v1 protocol. In particular, it is possible to control IO lines and relays of another NetPing device via a network.
To configure SNMP SETTER, there is a need to go to the page «LOGIC» of a device web interface:
In the section «SNMP SETTER» the next parameters are configured:
Channel Number («SNMP 1», «SNMP 2», «SNMP 3», «SNMP 4») – this number is specified as a rule output.
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, which listens to an SNMP agent at a remote device. On default: 161
OID (.1.3.6...) – is an identifier of a variable, which will be set 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 in the MIB file of a device in a specific format or in a documentation of a device. To browse the MIB file conveniently in the form of a tree and check functions of variables, it is possible to use the freeware iReasoning MIB Browser or any other similar software. On default: .184.108.40.206.4.1.25728.5800.3.1.3.1
Сommunity – is an SNMP Community for write, which is configured on a remote device. On default: empty line
"On" Value (type Integer32) – is a value, which will be recorded in the OID on a remote device when invoking an action «Switch On», by clicking the button «On» or through the output of a logic rule. A value type is 32-bit integer number with a sign. On default: 1
"Off" Values (type Integer32) – is a value, which will be recorded in the OID on a remote device when invoking an action «Switch Off», by clicking the button «Off», or through the output of a logic rule. A value type 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 for setting a variable, a result «ОК» is displayed in the field «Status». This means that a confirmation is received, and a variable is successfully set. «Timeout» means that a confirmation is not received. This can happen because of unavailability of a controlled device, its failure, incorrect IP address, port or community. Other variants mean that a response with an error code has been received, and its textual description is displayed in the 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». How to do this, it is possible to learn from the section «[ENG] 5.2. [DKSF 253.6 IU] How to Use the Module «Logic»?».
