This page describes how to configure SNMP on the SBC Edge and manage it using the iReasoning MIB Browser:
Step 1 - Configuring SNMP on the SBC
The SBC Edge SNMP Management Address Table entry should be created and configured with following information:
- SNMP Manager Address: IP address or the FQDN of the SNMP manager when a MIB browser is running.
- Community: Enter a desired community name. In this exercise we use public as the community name.
- Community Type: Must be set to Read-only.
- Trap Enabled: Not required but for this exercise we are setting it up as True.
Step 2 - Installing an SNMP Management Client
There are a various number of MIB Browsers available to download and use on the internet. For this exercise, we will be using a free edition of the iReasoning MIB Browser.
Follow the steps below to install, configure, and use the iReasoning MIB Browser:
- On a PC that is dedicated to be the SNMP Manager download iReasoning MIB Browser and install using the default settings.
- Launch iReasoning from the start menu.
- Click the Advanced...button as shown below and enter the following information:
- Address: IP Aaddress of the SBC
- Port: Keep the default value (161)
- Read Community: public
- Write Community: Leave it blank
Step 3 - Start Managing SBC via SNMP
To start managing the SBC via SNMP, load the SBC's SNMP MIB files files into the iReasoning MIB Browser:
- Download the MIB files located on the SNMP MIBs Reference page.
In the iReasoning MIB Browser, click the File menu and select Load MIBs.
- Browse to location where you saved the MIB files obtained in the initial step.
Select all MIB files and click Open.
Traps include both alarms and events. If you want to receive Trap for alarms and events from the SBC Edge, perform the following steps (SBC 1000/2000 example is used here):
In the iReasoning MIB Browser, click the Tools menu item and select Trap Receiver as shown below:
Click Trap Filter, add the IP address of Sonus SBC 1000/2000 node, and click OK.
Navigate to the private folder* navigation pane to see the relevant Sonus SBC 1000/2000 MIBs as shown below:
