An easy-to-use SNMP Manager
The world of control and monitoring is brought together with an easy-to-use SNMP Manager (NMS). As Broadcast facilities grow in size and complexity from individual buildings to multiple locations, there is a greater need to monitor the system in its totality from a central location. vSNMP is a powerful option which not only provides monitoring for broadcast equipment but also accounts for standard IT devices such as routers and servers to give an overall facility monitoring solution. vSNMP allows the user to manage, control and monitor all compliant SNMP devices on a network.
Many equipment manufacturers are incorporating SNMP as a basis to configuring and monitoring their devices. Equipment supporting SNMP enables broadcasters to monitor large infrastructures through one centralised system. To ease engineering workload, isolate faults, stay proactive in the management of the system and reduce down time SNMP is a key tool to manage and monitor a system.
The vSNMP service provides an Ember+ backend which VSM Studio connects to, allowing full monitoring and control of your broadcast system.
Device Class Creation & Device Discovery
vSNMP allows the user to create, connect and add new SNMP supported equipment giving a clear user-defined list of devices. vSNMP also scans the network for SNMP enabled devices which can be connected to the manager.
MIB File Upload MIB File Browser
vSNMP contains a standard MIB library of over 300 MIB modules. To access custom functionality from manufactures vSNMP allows the user to upload third-party MIB files with ease. The user can browse the MIB library in a clearly displayed expandable MIB Tree.
MIB File View
When a MIB is uploaded the user can view any of the MIB files within the vSNMP database to examine the information from a specific MIB object. The MIB View displays the Object Identifier (OID), the syntax, the max access if the object is read only or read/write and the description of the object’s functionality.
Polling Get & Set
If a value of an object changes vSNMP can be configured to poll the object entry. Different time increments can be set to ensure a device is polled at user defined time intervals. From the vSNMP Editor the user can manually GET an object value or SET a value which has been configured. Different aliases can be added to the values meaning the user can define how both objects and values are displayed and named.
An SNMP Trap is a message that indicates a change of state which is initiated by the agent. If a Trap is received the object and the value included in the trap message are handled by vSNMP. For the sake of keeping network traffic as low as possible, vSNMP can also be instructed to poll certain devices only in response to a trap.
