Prerequisites for Memory Pool—SNMP Notification Support

Before you can compile CISCO-ENHANCED-MEMPOOL-MIB, you need to compile the following MIBs in the order listed:

1. SNMPv2-SM (SNMP configuration MIB)

2. SNMPv2-TC (SNMP configuration MIB)

3. SNMPv2-CONF (SNMP configuration MIB)

4. SNMP-FRAMEWORK-MIB (SNMP configuration MIB)

5. CISCO-SMI (SNMP configuration MIB)

6. ENTITY-MIB (core MIB)

7. CISCO-ENHANCED-MEMPOOL-MIB (infrastructure MIB)

All MIBs used on Cisco devices are available through Cisco.com at http://www.cisco.com/go/mibs.

Restrictions for Memory Pool—SNMP Notification Support

Access to the MIB is restricted to a read-only level.

Information About Memory Pool—SNMP Notification Support

The CISCO-ENHANCED-MEMPOOL-MIB module describes SNMP objects that enable users to remotely monitor the memory pool statistics of all physical entities, such as line cards and route processors, in a managed device. This is particularly useful for high-end routers that may have a large number of line cards. Beginning in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(4)T, the MIB has been enhanced to provide buffer pool and buffer cache statistics.

In addition to the statistics provided by the MIB, SNMP notifications (traps or informs) can be configured to be sent when the maximum number of memory buffers changes (in other words, when a new buffer peak is reached).

How to Enable Memory Pool—SNMP Notification Support

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. snmp-server enable traps memory [bufferpeak]

4. snmp-server host

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

Enter your password if prompted.

Step 2 

configure terminal

Example:

Router# configure terminal

Enters global configuration mode.

Step 3 

snmp-server enable traps memory [bufferpeak]

Example:

Router(config)# snmp-server enable traps memory bufferpeak

Enables only buffer peak notifications (traps or informs) in the CISCO-ENHANCED-MEMPOOL-MIB.

Step 4 

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

Example:
Router(config)# snmp-server host 
NMS-host1.example.com community1 memory

Enables buffer peak notifications to be sent to the specified host.

Configuration Examples for Memory Pool—SNMP Notification Support

This section provides the following configuration example:

Enabling Memory Pool—SNMP Notification Support: Example

Enabling Memory Pool—SNMP Notification Support: Example

In the following example, all available memory-related SNMP notifications are enabled and configured to be sent as informs to the host myhost.cisco.com using the community string public:

Router(config)# snmp-server enable traps memory bufferpeak 
Router(config)# snmp-server host myhost.cisco.com informs version 3 public memory

Note that as of this release, only the buffer peak memory notification type is available. Additional memory notification type keywords may be added in future releases.
