Add support for SHA256 encryption for SNMPv3 discovery and polling in ITNM
We all need a good hash encryption algorithm in SNMPv3. SHA 1 is likely to be broken and all the NE vendors and security policies are moving to SHA2. We opened the case TS007203260 recently and we were told that SHA256 support is not planned for t...
ITNM SNMP poll definition should allow setting specific index
When trying to snmp poll for e.g. a routing engine teperature index it resulted that it is not possible to query directly from the basic threshold policy on an indexed OID like 188.8.131.52.4.1.26184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.0.0. It is only possible to poll for t...
ITNM to support Layer 2 connection on ZTE C300M (MSAN) devices

Better control over snmp polling for big network devices
ITNM has two different strategies for polling interfaces depending on the use of a polling filter: - Strategy 1 (when no polling filter is defined): poll all OIDs for each interface. - Strategy 2 (when a polling filter is defined): group multiple ...
