Monitoring SNMP Services

Aug 31, 2016

The NetScaler appliance has one built-in monitor that can be used to monitor SMNP services: the SNMP monitor. It periodically checks the SNMP agent on the service to which it is bound by sending a query for the enterprise identification ID (OID) that you configure for monitoring. If the query is successful, the service is marked UP. If the SNMP service finds the OID that you specified, the query succeeds and the SNMP monitor marks the service UP. If it does not find the OID, the query fails and the SNMP monitor marks service DOWN.

Note: Monitor probes originate from the NetScaler IP (NSIP) address.
