This task describes how to determine if the BMC PATROL Agent can make SNMP queries. It demonstrates that BMC PATROL can make SNMP requests of the BMC PATROL SNMP Master Agent.

To Test the Master Agent's Ability to Receive Traps

  1. Access the SNMPHealth application menu as described in Accessing KM Commands and InfoBoxes.
  2. Select Test PATROL SNMP System > SNMP Query PATROL Master Agent. BMC PATROL displays the SNMP Query PATROL Master Agent dialog box.

  3. Click OK.
    BMC PATROL writes the information to a BMC PATROL task object (SNMP Query PATROL Master Agent) in the UNIX OS container.
  4. Access the SNMP Query PATROL Master Agent task object as described in Accessing KM Commands and InfoBoxes and view the results. Your results should resemble this example:
host:           <accounting_db_3>
listening_port: <1161>
community:      <public>
timeout:        <>
retries:        <>
oid:            <.1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0>
 
SNMP Query Master Agent:
errno: 0
snmp_get returned: 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0        111 string
