OSPFv3 MIB

OSPFv3 MIB

The OSPFv3 MIB feature enables remote monitoring and troubleshooting of Open Shortest Path First version 3 (OSPFv3) processes using standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) management workstations. The protocol information collected by the OSPFv3 MIB objects and trap objects can be used to derive statistics that helps monitor and improve overall network performance.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the feature information table at the end of this module.

Prerequisites for OSPFv3 MIB

  • Ensure that Open Shortest Path First version 3 (OSPFv3) is configured on the device.

  • Ensure that Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is enabled on the device before notifications (traps) can be configured or before SNMP GET operations can be performed.

Restrictions for OSPFv3 MIB Support

  • To monitor multiple Open Shortest Path First version 3 (OSPFv3) processes, each process must be associated with a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) context.

  • To monitor multiple VRFs, each VRF must be associated with an SNMP context.

Information About OSPFv3 MIB

OSPFv3 MIB

Open Shortest Path First version 3 (OSPFv3) is the IPv6 implementation of OSPF. The OSPFv3 MIB is documented in RFC 5643 and defines a MIB for managing OSPFv3 processes through Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Users can constantly monitor the changing state of an OSPF network by using MIB objects. The MIB objects gather information relating to protocol parameters and trap notification objects that can signal the occurrence of significant network events such as transition state changes.

OSPFv3 TRAP MIB

The ospfv3Notifications MIB object contains the OSPFv3 trap MIB objects that enable and disable OSPF traps in the Cisco IOS CLI. These OSPFv3 trap MIB objects are provided by the RFC 5643 standard OSPFv3 MIB.

How to Configure OSPFv3 MIB

Enabling Specific OSPFv3 Traps

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    snmp-serverhost {hostname | ip-address} [vrf vrf-name] [traps | informs] [version {1 | 2c | 3 [auth | noauth | priv]}] community-string [udp-port port] [notification-type]

    4.    snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 errors [bad-packet] [config-error] [virt-bad-packet] [virt-config-error]

    5.    snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 rate-limit seconds trap-number

    6.    snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 state-change [if-state-change] [neighbor-restart-helper-status-change] [neighbor-state-change] [nssa-translator-status-change] [restart-status-change] [virtif-state-change] [virtneighbor-restart-helper-status-change] [virtneighbor-state-change]

    7.    end


DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Device> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.

     
    Step 2 configure terminal


    Example:
    Device# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 snmp-serverhost {hostname | ip-address} [vrf vrf-name] [traps | informs] [version {1 | 2c | 3 [auth | noauth | priv]}] community-string [udp-port port] [notification-type]


    Example:
    Device(config)# snmp-server host 172.20.2.162 version 2c public ospfv3
     

    Specifies a recipient (target host) for Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) notification operations.

    • If the notification-type is not specified, all enabled notifications (traps or informs) are sent to the specified host.

    • If you want to send only the Open Shortest Path First version 3 (OSPFv3) notifications to the specified host, you can use the optional ospfv3 keyword as the notification-types . Entering the ospfv3 keyword enables the ospfv3Notifications MIB object.

     
    Step 4 snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 errors [bad-packet] [config-error] [virt-bad-packet] [virt-config-error]


    Example:
    Device(config)# snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 errors
     

    Enables SNMP notifications for OSPFv3 errors.

     
    Step 5 snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 rate-limit seconds trap-number


    Example:
    Device(config)# snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 rate-limit 20 20
     

    Sets the rate limit for the number of SNMP OSPFv3 notifications that are sent in each OSPFv3 SNMP notification rate-limit window.

     
    Step 6 snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 state-change [if-state-change] [neighbor-restart-helper-status-change] [neighbor-state-change] [nssa-translator-status-change] [restart-status-change] [virtif-state-change] [virtneighbor-restart-helper-status-change] [virtneighbor-state-change]


    Example:
    Device(config)# snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 state-change
     

    Enables SNMP OSPFv3 notifications for OSPFv3 transition state changes.

     
    Step 7 end


    Example:
    Device(config)# end
     

    Exits global configuration mode and enters privileged EXEC mode.

     

    Verifying OSPFv3 MIB Traps on the Device

    SUMMARY STEPS

      1.    enable

      2.    show running-config [options]


    DETAILED STEPS
      Step 1   enable


      Example:
      Device> enable

      Enables privileged EXEC mode.

      • Enter your password if prompted.

      Step 2   show running-config [options]


      Example:
      Device# show running-config | include traps 

      Displays the contents of the currently running configuration file and includes information about enabled traps.

      • Verifies which traps are enabled.


      Configuration Examples for OSPFv3 MIB

      Example: Enabling and Verifying OSPFv3 MIB Traps

      The following example shows how to enable all OSPFv3 error traps:

      Device> enable
      Device# configure terminal
      Device(config)# snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 errors
      Device(config)# end
      

      The following example shows how to verify that the traps are enabled:

      Device> enable
      Device# show running-config | include traps
      
      snmp-server enable traps ospfv3 errors
