This task describes how to start the SNMP subagent. Generally, this task is performed when the SNMP master agent is running but the SNMP subagent is not.

The SNMPHealth application class uses a parameter without an icon, snmp_subagent_start, to ensure that BMC PATROL attempts to start the subagent if it is not started. The parameter checks the status of the subagent every 60 seconds. Perform this task if either the parameter cannot restart the subagent or you do not want to wait for the next restart attempt.

Before you begin

This command will fail if the SNMP Master Agent is not running.

To Start the subagent

  1. Access the SNMPHealth application menu as described in Accessing KM Commands and InfoBoxes.
  2. Select Start/Stop SNMP Agent > Start SNMP Sub-agent. BMC PATROL starts the subagent. If the subagent is already running, BMC PATROL stops the subagent and restarts it. BMC PATROL writes its progress to the system output window. Your results should resemble this example:

    CCYYMMDDHHMMSS SNMPHealth Start SNMP sub-agent: SNMP sub-agent is already active.
    CCYYMMDDHHMMSS SNMPHealth Start SNMP sub-agent: Stopping SNMP sub-agent.
    CCYYMMDDHHMMSS SNMPHealth Start SNMP sub-agent: Starting SNMP sub-agent.
    CCYYMMDDHHMMSS SNMPHealth Start SNMP sub-agent: SNMP sub-agent is active.
