SNMP Telemetry Monitoring for Both SNMP and Non-SNMP Equipment

Verify your SNMP telemetry system supports essential telemetry functions.

Don't use an SNMP manager for network alarm notification and fault management. It's missing 7 critical functions for this task. Unless you have everything reporting to one system, you won't have complete visibility. Systems that integrate SNMP and non-SNMP telemetry monitoring are perfectly tailored to this role. Your SNMP monitoring implementation will be successful only if it supports all seven functions.

Depending on an off-the-shelf SNMP manager for mission-critical remote monitoring is a mistake.

If you're combining non-SNMP telemetry monitoring with SNMP-based telemetry monitoring or switching from traditional telemetry, an off-the-shelf SNMP manager won't give you the visibility you're expecting.You need visibility of every remote site all at once, not isolated systems for non-SNMP and SNMP equipment. Use your SNMP manager where it works the best: drilling down for specific equipment problems and network inventory.

7 Critical Functions of SNMP Telemetry Monitoring

  1. Maintain a list of standing alarms
    Your SNMP manager must maintain a list of standing alarms and not just log newly reported or acknowledged traps. Imagine what would happen to your network if a system operator acknowledged an alarm, and then failed to correct the alarm condition. Who would know the alarm was still standing? No one!
  2. System operator login and identification
    SNMP telemetry monitoring must log the identity of the system operator who acknowledges an alarm event. In the case of a negligent system operator, it would be difficult to determine who had made the error or to assign responsibility for the problems that resulted.
  3. Indicate cleared alarms
    Off the shelf SNMP managers don't correlate SNMP Trap messages to an alarm condition or a clear condition.
  4. View regional and local categories of alarms
    Advanced SNMP telemetry monitoring will allow you to organize alarms by logical categories. You can post the same alarm to multiple logical categories or sort which alarms the user wants to see
  5. Detailed, precise alarm descriptions
    SNMP telemetry monitoring systems should record the time, location, severity, and a precise description of alarm events
  6. Best quality telemetry monitoring
    You'll have complete visibility of your entire network, not just the SNMP enabled devices, with tools such as notifications escalation, legacy protocol mediation, nuisance alarm silencing, automatic control relay operation, and automatic notifications by pager and e-mail.
  7. Maintain System Security and Strict Accountability
    Advanced SNMP remote monitoring tracks each user by a unique id and automatically records user actions in a history log.
