MissionControl NPM includes a MIB database that covers the vast majority of common network devices. But, for that handful of odd devices that are lurking in your network, or for newer devices that have MIB tables, you can now collect valuable and highly detailed management data. For example, NPM’s support for MIB tables enables you to collect and analyze data on virtual machines on a VMware® ESX server, the performance of fiber-channel switches or traffic on lightweight wireless access points.
NPM makes it easy to create a custom poller to monitor any SNMP-enabled device value that has a MIB, including virtually any statistic that a network device records. Examples include monitoring temperature on a switch, fan speed on a router, and battery status on a UPS. In addition to creating custom MIB pollers, MissionControl has an extensive database of MIB information to determine the English name for each OID and the MIB to which it belongs.
You can also customize the collected data displayed for graphing, alerting and reporting purposes. And, using the MIB Transformation Wizard, you can convert MIB values into the units of measurement that are most useful to you. Choose from a list of common transformations, such as converting monitored CPU temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit, or create your own multi-MIB formulas to display, for example, the average interface throughput on a router.
You can also collect detailed information stored in device MIB tables and easily create formulas such as the minimum, maximum, average or sum of MIB entries in the same column. You can even export MIB pollers or transformations you’ve created, or import those created by others.
