SNMP Community String Change Per Slot
« on: July 03, 2020, 04:41:07 pm »

I am trying to monitor a device via SNMP where to poll all of the OIDs correctly, I have to append the slot number to the community string. (ex., to poll slot 2, use "public2", for slot 4 use "public4")

If I were to use a custom script or attribute, I don't see a value to specify the community string. Can this be done?

Currently the only way to make this work is to create a separate node for each slot. In configuration for each node you have to specify corresponding community string.
To avoid issues with one and the same IP address for several nodes set checkbox "This is address of remote management node" for all these nodes. And disable configuration polls for these nodes.

If you have a big network of such devices, you can contact Raden Solutions, they can develop a custom driver for such devices within sponsored development.
