SNMP Data Mining for IT Connectivity

Snmp importance
SNMP Importance

  • Why SNMP is Important in today’s SCADA systems

Snmp data mining features
SNMP Data Mining Features

  • SNMP-to-the-Core

    • Fully integrated into ICONICS FrameWorX

  • GUI developed around user needs

  • Full exploration of SNMP

  • Auto-detection of Device Types with fancy recognizable ICONs

  • MIB parser with no limits on the number of OIDs that can be imported

Snmp data mining features1
SNMP Data Mining Features

  • Auto-discovery of Managed Devices

    • Possible to scan whole networks with one command

    • Configurable time-out for the Ping function

    • Multi-threaded design provides fast response

  • Supports the ability to use SNMP data as tags (just as you would use OPC DA tags)

Snmp key components
SNMP Key Components

  • Three key components:

    • Managed devices (network elements)

      • Network node that contains an SNMP agent and that resides on a managed network. Managed devices collect and store management information and make this information available to NMSs using SNMP. Managed devices, sometimes called network elements, can be routers and access servers, switches and bridges, hubs, computer hosts, or printers

    • Agents

      • Network-management software module that resides in a managed device. An agent has local knowledge of management information and translates that information into a form compatible with SNMP.

    • Network-management system (NMS)

      • An NMS executes applications that monitor and control managed devices. One or more NMSs must exist on any managed network.

Snmp protocol oids
SNMP Protocol - OIDs

  • OID – Object Identifier

  • The “OPC Tagname” in the IT World

  • Each Object (piece of information) is identified by a series of numbers

  • Unique definition

What is a mib
What is a MIB?

  • MIB – Management Information Base

    • ASCII text file that describes an SNMP Network Element as a list of data objects

    • Translates numeric strings into Human Readable text

    • Provides the data type of each OID

SNMP Basic Commands

  • Read

    • Used to Monitor Managed Devices

  • Write

    • Used to Control Managed Devices

  • Trap

    • Used by Managed Devices to asynchronously report (report by exception) events

Information about

The Device/Object

Selected in left pane

Functions to

Customize the GUI

Network Device

Exploration –

Enter beginning

And ending IP


Options to:

- Retrieve DNS Name

- Cache the MIB

Launch the


SNMP Configurator

Snmp explorer

GUI similar to

the Unified Data

Browser’s GUI

Easy to recognize the

Device types because

of the ICONs

Possible to explore the

Objects supported by

each discovered device

(using the MIB)

Human Readable names are

provided if the MIB for the device

is contained In the database

(otherwise OID number is displayed)

If the SNMP root is selected

In the left pane, the right

Pane will list the devices and their

Well-known types

Selected Values

Are moved to the

Upper pane

(like UDB)

When bottom of tree

Reached, shows the

Leaves, with data types

(if MIB is present)

Tooltip provides

detailed information

  • Third party Management Systems

    • SNMP protocol is a standard

    • Information available to all SNMP applications

      • MIB Files specify the data structure to the NMS

      • SNMP agents send the data

      • Nothing else is needed

    • MonitorWorX management available on existing infrastructures
