RE: [snips-users] multithreaded snmpmonitor?
We are currently using Fidelia's NetVigil product to query over 10000 SNMP OIDs every 5 minutes. This is running on a Pentium 3, 1GHz Linux box with plenty of resources to spare. In addition to NetVigil fulfilling our enterprise monitoring requirements, it has saved us hundreds of man-hours that would have been spent customizing NOCOL. Fidelia's support has been tremendous. If anyone has any questions regarding my experiences with NetVigil, please feel free to contact me. -Kirk Kirk Lightfoot Sr. Unix Administrator Sony Online Entertainment klightfoot at soe sony.com -----Original Message----- From: Vikas Aggarwal [mailto:vikas at navya com] Sent: Monday, August 05, 2002 7:27 PM To: Jerry Wilborn Cc: 'snips-users navya' Subject: Re: [snips-users] multithreaded snmpmonitor? Jerry- If you need such a fast multi-threaded SNMP monitor (for a very large number of devices), see if you want to try the Fidelia NetVigil product (it is a commercial product, but we are running specials for NOCOL users). It has a *very* fast multithreaded SNMP poller which also sends multiple requests to the same host in the same packet. It is capable of polling about 50k SNMP tests on a single P3 or equivalent machine at 5 minute intervals. If you have custom monitors that you have written for NOCOL/SNIPS, you should be able to port them to NetVigil easily. For more information on the NOCOL program from Fidelia, please go to: http://www.fidelia.com/nocol/ NOTE: I work for Fidelia, and I hope that the various nocol programs (including a free program for pingmon/hostmon users) will compensate for the lack of active and periodic NOCOL releases. -vikas Vikas Aggarwal Jerry Wilborn wrote: > anyone? please? > > heh. > > Jerry Wilborn, Network Operations, Bethlehem, PA > FASTNET - Internet Solutions > 610-266-6700 > www.fast.net > > > > -----Original Message----- > From: Jerry Wilborn [mailto:jerry wilborn at fast.net] > Sent: Wednesday, July 24, 2002 5:48 PM > To: 'snips-users navya' > Subject: [snips-users] multithreaded snmpmonitor? > > > anyone ever looked in to writing a monitor to implement something like > this: > > http://lpr.sourceforge.net/man/libsnmpkit.3.txt > > the author basically talks about querying a large number of devices > and the lag associated with things that are down (which is what snips > is designed to find, no?). > > thoughts? > > Jerry Wilborn, Network Operations > FASTNET - Internet Solutions > 610-266-6700 > www.fast.net >
