snmp data collection
can anyone help with using the snmp data collectors with opensta?
first of all, i know nothing about snmp at all. so far I have started the snmp daemon on the linux box (red hat 8.0) i want to monitor (/etc/rc.d/init.d/snmpd). Next i created a collector in my snmpd test. First thing i noticed that was weird is that i could could not recognize my linux box using the snmp server scan in opensta. anyways, i can enter the host name in the edit query box, and then go to browse queries selection. It displays all the available queries for category 'System'. If I change the category dropdown, no queries appear. the 'system' queries are no good to me. anyone have any advice of what to do from here? do i need to start the daemon with any specific settings or do anything else? im a little confused.
any help is appreciated..
