Nokia Netact SNMP integration - Snmpset operation to set 2 OID's at single execution

Nokia are removing support for their CORBA interface making SNMP interface the only supported solution. As SNMP comes up with risk to lose traps due to packet loss, between the EMS and the probe server, nokia netact comes up with the solution to request the Netact via snmpset to retransmit the lost traps .

Currently the snmpset tools (which comes with the rules set) supports setting only 1 object at one execution, but for the nokia alarm re-transmit to function, the MTTrap probe needs to be capable of sending TCP/IP SNMPSET commands with at least two options.


$hostname = ""

$port = "16604"

$protocol = "tcp"

$community = "public"

$OID01 = "SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.28458."

$type01 = "s"

$value01 = "27236555-27236556"

$OID02 = "SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.28458."

$type02 = "s"

$value02 = "onefm"

$result = snmpset_v2c_p($hostname, $protocol, $community, $port, $OID01, $type01, $value01, $OID02, $type02, $value02)

Presently the MTTrapd probe only supports one UDP option in SNMPSET/SNMPGET.

Using he current command doesnot work:

$hostname = ""

$port = "16604"

$community = "public"

$OID = "SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.28458."

$type = "s"

$value = "27236555-27236556"

$result001 = snmpset_v2c_p($hostname, $OID, $type, $value, $community, $port)

$OID = "SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.28458."

$type = "s"

$value = "onefm"

$result002 = snmpset_v2c_p($hostname, $OID, $type, $value, $community, $port)

and this does not work.

<-- end


manual command execution for reference -

snmpset -v2c -c private . s 27236555-27236556 s onefm

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.28458. = STRING: "27236555-27236556"

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.28458. = STRING: "onefm"
