Monitoring Splunk

SNMP polling with Splunk

Engager

I am exploring using SPLUNK to do SNMP polling to my cisco router and switches. I checked SPLUNK documentation and found out that its only support SNMP traps. I am searching SPLUNK-Answer for some recommendation, but seems like there are no direct answers or working example which i can use.

1) Do you have any ideas if SNMP poll/walk will be supported in future, since WMI is supported for windows host?

2) Do you have any sample working example for running net-snmp poll for any cisco router and switches for their interface speed/ingress/egress bandwidth?

Thanks millions to all.

Hello, everyone,

Please, can you help me. I installed SNMP Modular Input and configured SNMP polling to server. But data don't receive to Splunk. Also I can't find snmp_ta sourcetype in list. Can you say what I may solve this problem?

SNMP polling is available to Splunk via external scripts. This question and answer covers some of it: http://splunk-base.splunk.com/answers/38219/snmpget-with-splunk

I do have a Python script that I've written to do SNMP queries against a Netapp Filer as part of an app I'm hoping to release in the near future..if you want, I can get you a copy of it - it uses net-snmp, and would require a bit of modification to query cisco's.
