[ENG] 14.5. [DKSF 70/71.6 IU] What Is SNMP SETTER?
SNMP Setter is used as an output for the rule of the module «Logic» and is designed for setting the 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 via the 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 parameters of the SETTER are configured:
Channel number («SNMP 1», «SNMP 2») – this number is indicated as an «output» for 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, which listens to an SNMP agent on a remote device. On default: 161
OID (.1.3.6...) – is an identifier of a variable, which will be set in a remote device. It is necessary to specify a complete OID in a numeric notation, starting from .1.3… A list of variables is contained in the MIB file of a device in a specific format or in the documentation of a device. To browse the MIB file conveniently, in the form of a tree and checking the functions of variables, it is possible to use the freeware iReasoning MIB Browser or any other similar software. On default: .126.96.36.199.4.1.25728.5800.3.1.3.1
Сommunity – is SNMP Community for write, configured on a remote device. On default: empty line
«On» value (type Integer32) – is a value that will be written in the OID on a remote device when activating the action «On», by clicking the button «On», or through the «output» of a logic rule. The type of value is 32-bit integer number with a sign. On default: 1
«Off» value (type Integer32) – is a value that will be written in the OID on a remote device when activating the action «Off», by clicking the button «Off», or through the «output» of a logic rule. The 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 the sending of a request for setting 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. This can happen because of the unavailability of a controlled device, its failure, incorrect IP address, port or community. The dash «-» means that the SNMP SETTER did not send the command yet, or a request status is not determined. «Waiting for a response» means that the SNMP SETTER sent a command to a remote device and waits for a response. Other variants mean that a response with an error code was 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] 14.2. [DKSF 70/71.6 IU] How to Use the Module «Logic»?».
