We're setting up an alert in SNMP to monitor the replication status of our RSA servers.
Can you help to provide an OID that will return 1 for replication healthy and 0 for replication failed?
Cos currently, we don't have a means of polling a metric where the response is a non-numeric string.
For replication status, there is only a string.
You can use snmpget and then convert the string to a value and pass that value forward, possibly.
Here is one example of fetching status and echoing a value 0-4:
This is one way I'd do it in a lab if I did not have flexibility in my SNMP monitoring software
to handle strings, nor be able to echo a value as input to another process:
-snmpget to fetch the AM OID string, and then use a script to create a value,
-snmpset that value to another SNMP device 'notes/location/address...etc'
or otherwise less important OID where you can set variables,
-monitor that device OID in your SNMP tool to monitor replication status, now a number and not a string.
Authentication Manager does not support SNMP sets, hence a different device or 'mule' to use for replication status storage.
