This task describes how to determine if the BMC PATROL Agent application class can receive SNMP queries. It demonstrates that BMC PATROL can make SNMP requests inside the BMC PATROL Agent and access the platform.km, which is automatically loaded by the agent.

To Test the Ability of the Platform.km 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 platform.km. BMC PATROL displays the SNMP Query platform.km dialog box.

    SNMP Query PATROL Platform .km Dialog Box
  3. Click OK. BMC PATROL writes the information to a BMC PATROL task object (SNMP Query PATROL platform.km) in the UNIX OS container.
  4. Access the SNMP Query PATROL platform.km task object as described in Accessing KM Commands and InfoBoxes and view the results. Your results should resemble this example:
host:           <accounting_db_4>
listening_port: <1161>
community:      <public>
timeout:        <>
retries:        <>
oid:            <.2.1.2.1.2.1.2121.1.1.1.6.1.1.0>
 
SNMP Query PATROL <platform>.km:
errno: 0
snmp_get returned: 2.1.2.1.2.1.2121.1.1.1.6.1.1.0        4 string       UNIX
