Hi, is there a way to query the ambient temperature of a B5 or C5 switch with SNMP? The MIB cabletron-environment works perfectly for S4 and S8 cores, but not for B5 or C5 switches. Thanks a lot! Best Regards,Thomas
Hi Thomas, AFAIK there is no way to query the current temperature but you'd enable SNMP traps to get an alarm as soon as the chassis is getting too hot.
So here my notes from a test I've done last year with a D2 and Netsight ....
- configure the switch to enable trap forwarding to IP 10.12.0.22 set snmp targetparams publicpara user public security-model v1 message processing v1 set snmp targetaddr publictrap 10.12.0.22 param publicpara taglist publictraptag set snmp notify publictrap tag publictraptag
- enable SNMP for system temperatur traps set system temperature trap enable
- test = force the trap = set temperatur threshold to 1% = fan will go max set system temperature overtemp-threshold 1 trap enable
- turn it back to normal set system temperature overtemp-threshold 100 trap enable
of the Netsight trap (Netsight version 6.0 early release)
