This task describes how to start the BMC PATROL SNMP Master Agent.

Before you begin

  1. Check to see that the master agent has stopped running. You can verify the agent's status by using one of the following methods:
    • View the SNMPHealth capture diagnostic text parameter
    • Run the SNMP List Configuration menu command
    • Search the process table for the snmpmagt process
  2. This command will fail if the SMUX port (tcp port 199) or the SNMP query port (defined in PATROL_HOME/lib/snmpmagt.cfg ) is used by some other process.

To Start the Master Agent

  1. Access the SNMPHealth application menu as described in Accessing KM Commands and InfoBoxes.
  2. Select Start/Stop SNMP Agent > Start SNMP Master Agent.
    After attempting to start the SNMP Master Agent, BMC PATROL refreshes the process cache, sleeps for 60 seconds, and then stops and restarts the PATROL SNMP subagent.

    BMC PATROL writes its progress to the system output window. Your results should resemble this example:

    CCYYMMDDHHMMSS Start SNMP Master Agent... snmpmagt
    CCYYMMDDHHMMSS Start SNMP Master Agent... Executing Start command: /apps/patrol/
    CCYYMMDDHHMMSS Refresh Process cache and then sleep 60 seconds
    CCYYMMDDHHMMSS Start SNMP Master Agent... Patrol SNMP sub-agent stopped
    CCYYMMDDHHMMSS Start SNMP Master Agent... Patrol SNMP sub-agent stopped
