Question:

We would like to know how we should assign CIType / CIMetric for a checkpoint in snmptoolkit probe.

In snmptoolkit probe, we are able to use any value for CIType / CIMetric.

Please tell us how these values works out in UIM.

 

Environment:

UIM v8.4

snmptoolkit probe

 

Answer:

The CIType / CIMetirc definition affects how the metric is displayed in USM.

For example, if you use 2.1.2:3 (CIType=2.1.2 / CIMetric=3), you are seeing below hierarchy display in USM [Metric] tab.

 

Network > Device > CPU > checkpoint_name

(*) <wasp>\i18n\Nimsoft_<lang>.properties is used to resolve the hierarchy.

CIType / CIMetric definition also affects how the report is "Titled" in USM.

For example, if you use 2.1.2:3 (CIType=2.1.2 / CIMetric=3), the report is titled as “CPU Last 5 Min

(*) If you do not specify any CIType / CIMetric for a checkpoint in snmptoolkit probe, the probe assigns 2.1.7:1 (CIType=2.1.7 / CIMetric=1) as default value.

The report is titled as "Dynamic Counter".

CIType / CIMetric definition also affects how UNIT / UNIT strings is determined for reporting.
