To monitor the data points of a device or entity, you must add them to the device in Security Center.

Before you begin

What you should know

You can only define the data points contained in a static SNMP table by specifying their index in the table. Changes to the table by the SNMP agent at runtime could result in an invalid data point.

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select an SNMP device or entity from the entity browser and click the Properties tab.
  3. In the Data points section, click Add data point () and enter the following:
    Display name
    The name of the data point.
    OID
    The object identifier of the data point.
    Type
    The data type of the OID. For more information, see Data types used by the SNMP plugin.
    Name
    The unit of measure of the data point. This field is optional.
    Symbol
    A symbol to represent the unit of measure of the data point. This field is optional.
  4. Click Add and then click Apply.

Results

The data point is displayed in the Data points section.

After you finish

Add actions to the device.
