21.2. Configuring the Directory Server for SNMP

By default, the Directory Server is ready to be monitored using SNMP as soon as the subagent is configured. However, there are some useful variables in the Directory Server instances which can be configured to help identify the Directory Server instance with SNMP. To configure these SNMP settings from the Directory Server Console:
  1. Select the Configuration tab, and then select the topmost entry in the navigation tree in the left pane.
  2. Select the SNMP tab in the main window.
  3. Fill in the information about the SNMP descriptors so that it is easy to identify the Directory Server instance in Net-SNMP.
    • A unique name and description for the instance.
    • The company or organization to which the directory instance belongs.
    • The physical location of the directory instance or the organization which manages the instance.
    • The email address or contact number for the person who maintains the Directory Server instance.
  4. Click Save.
