The following classes of SNMP device are supported. The links below link to Configipedia pages which provide up to date lists of supported devices of each class. Click the SNMP Devices icon on the Administration page for an definitive list of the supported devices on your appliance.

Monthly TKU releases might increase the SNMP device coverage.


If you need BMC Atrium Discovery to support a new SNMP device, you should first try to create a recognition rule for it. This is described in Recognizing SNMP devices. You can also use the Device Capture capability to download a zipped MIB that you can forward to BMC Customer Support as part of a new support issue. BMC Atrium Discovery engineering will aim to incorporate support for the new device as a new feature in future TKU releases. You are recommended to raise the case reporting the unsupported SNMP device, including the zipped MIB as early as possible to maximize the chances of its inclusion in the earliest release possible.

BMC only provides integration support for SNMP-enabled devices that are either network printers or core networking infrastructure such as switches, routers, and load balancers. Other device classes, such as SNMP-enabled network appliances (NetApp devices), KVM switches, or UPS devices, should be discovered through the use of recognition rules.

To view the SNMP devices supported by BMC Atrium Discovery

  1. From the Discovery section on the Administration tab, click SNMP Devices. On the SNMP Devices page, supported devices are displayed organized in the following categories:
    • Vendor
    • Capability
    • Kind
  2. Select a category to view the list of SNMP devices in that category. The following information is shown for each SNMP device:

    Field Name



    The name of the SNMP device.


    The kind of SNMP device. This might be Network Device for switches, routers, firewalls and so on. For printers, the kind is Printer.


    The capabilities, or purpose of the SNMP device. For example, Router, Switch, Layer 3 Switch, UPS, or Blade System.


    The SNMP sysObjectID.


    Whether the exact SNMP device has been tested by BMC. This can be either:
    EXACT: BMC has tested the SNMP queries used to discover this device on a device of exactly this model.
    SIMILAR: BMC has tested the SNMP queries used to discover this device on a device that is similar, but not identical, to this device. For example, the queries might have been tested on a device from the same family of devices from the same vendor, but not on this exact model.


    Any additional useful notes on the device.

  3. Click a device to display a list of all of methods that BMC Atrium Discovery might use to obtain data from a device, and the Object Identifiers accessed.
    Where an OID contains a table, a plus (+) icon is displayed.
  4. Click the plus icon to reveal the table. Click the minus (-) icon to collapse the table as illustrated in the following screen.
    This screen illustrates the methods discovery might use to obtain data from a device.

Not all devices support all methods.
