Device management An SNMP manager can read information from an SNMP agent to monitor a device. Therefore the device needs to be polled on an interval basis. The SNMP manager can also change the configuration of a device, by setting certain values to corresponding variables. Managers or components that use these standards include the IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Fabric. Traps A device can also be set up to send a notification to the SNMP manager (this is called a trap ) to asynchronously inform this SNMP manager of a status change. Depending on the existing environment and organization, it is likely that your environment already has an SNMP management application in place. The managers or components that use this standard are: IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Fabric (sending and receiving of traps) IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data can be set up to send traps, but does not receive traps IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Disk and IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Replication events can be sent as SNMP traps by utilizing the IBM Director infrastructure. Management Information Base SNMP use a hierarchical structured Management Information Base (MIB) to define the meaning and the type of a particular value.
