SNMP Table Event Monitor
Uses SNMP to Monitor a Table of SNMP Values and Their Associated Other Values
About the SNMP Table Event Monitor

The SNMP Table event monitor makes it easy to monitor SNMP values where the list of items changes dynamically. For example, a wifi access point might maintain an SNMP table that lists all of the clients that are currently connected. The SNMP Table event monitor makes it easy to monitor that list even as clients connect and disconnect throughout the day.

Monitoring Options

To begin, enter the SNMP profile, version, and community string that will be used to connect with the event monitor. Enter the port number, timeout, and the number of retries you want the monitor to perform.

SNMP Settings

The first option lets you choose the level of alert you will receive if the event monitor cannot connect to one or more of your network devices.

SNMP Connection Alert Option

The next option will send you an alert if the SNMP values you're monitoring cannot be found.

SNMP Values Alert Option

Check the box labeled "Include a table of the result data" if you want the event text generated by the event monitor to include a table of results. You can also choose to color-code the result data for easy interpretation.

Enter the table's base OID or symbolic name in the "Table Base" field.
