Add RMON Event on SFE/SGE Managed Switches
Remote Monitoring (RMON) is a standard monitoring specification which enables various network monitors and console systems to exchange network-monitoring data. Monitoring devices commonly called "probes" have the RMON software agents which collect the information and analyze the packets. The probes act like servers while the network management applications that communicate with them act like clients.
The objective of this article is to guide you on how to add RMON events.
• SFE/SGE Managed Switches
Step 1. Log in to the Switch Configuration utility and choose Statistics > RMON > Events. The Events page opens:
It contains the following fields:
• Event Entry — Indicates the event number.
• Community — Indicates the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) community string.
• Description — Shows the description of the event.
• Type — Indicates the type of event. The possible values are:
– None — No action is taken.
– Log — A log entry is added in the RMON log table by the device when the associated alarm triggers.
– Trap — A trap is sent by the device. A trap enables an agent to notify the management station of significant events by sending message.
– Log and Trap — A log entry is added and a trap is sent by the device.
• Time — Shows the date and time of an event.
• Owner — Shows the user or the device that created the event.
Step 2. Click the Add button. The Add RMON Events window opens:
Note: The Event Entry field indicates the index number of this event.
Step 3. In the Community field enter the required SNMP string.
Step 4. In the Description field enter the event description.
Step 5. From the Type drop-down list choose the appropriate value.
• None — No action will take place.
• Log — A log entry will be added by the device. Adds an entry in the RMON log table when the associated alarm triggers.
• Trap — A trap will be sent by the device. A trap enables an agent to notify the management station of significant events by sending message.
• Log and Trap — A log entry is added and a trap is sent by the device.
Step 6. In the Owner field enter the name of owner. The owner is the event which triggers the alarm.
Step 7. Click Apply. The required RMON settings are added.
Caution: This only saves your configuration to the running configuration file. This means any changes made will be lost if the device is rebooted. If you wish to save these changes even after a system reboot, you need to copy the running configuration file to the startup configuration file. See Copy Configuration File on SFE/SGE Series Managed Switchesfor more information on how to do this.
