    Default SNMP Problems

    I would like to monitor my zimbra server via cacti and snmp.
    But snmp seems not working after installation.

    my system:
    RedHat Fedora Core 4
    Release 3.1.1_GA_394.FC4_20060505121237 FC4 FOSS edition

    zmcontrol status reports
    snmp Running

    cat /tmp/swatch.out reports
    *** swatch version 3.1.1 (pid:7597) started at Thu Jul 6 11:11:00 CEST 2006

    Admininterface https://myhost:7071 Server status reports
    snmp running

    less /opt/zimbra/log/zimbra.log reports nothing about snmp

    My first problem is, that I couldn't find any open snmp-port 161 or 162
    nmap myhost only reports the usual ports:
    22 25 80 110 111 143 389 ...

    My second problem is, that snmp-tools under /opt/zimbra/snmp-5.1.2/bin/ seems not to be working, even after including
    /opt/zimbra/snmp/lib in /etc/
    and running ldconf

    snmpwalk -v 1 -c zimbra localhost
    reports running as user zimbra:
    Cannot find module (IP-MIB): At line 0 in (none)
    Cannot find module (IF-MIB): At line 0 in (none)
    Timeout: No Response from localhost

    Any tipps?

    Default RE: SNMP Problems

    On the server console I found following message
    process snmpwalk is using an obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT

    Are there any problems with new kernels like 2.6.16??

    It seems like I am having the same trouble. SNMP service is reportedly running. But I cannot find any snmp port available with nmap.

    [zimbra@pluto bin]$ snmpwalk -v 1 -c zimbra localhost
    Timeout: No Response from localhost
    [zimbra@pluto bin]$
    Would be glad if could get this thing working!

    System - RHEL4
    Kernel - 2.6.9-5.ELsmp
    running zimbra 4.0.2 NE

    zimbra does not provide snmp, unfortunately. I think the snmp binaries are there to provide traps when alerted by the logwatchers.

    Postfix also does not privide any SNMP information, any monitoring of that is done is by reading the logfiles. IIRC, there's a discussion (or three) on the cacti forum about monitoring postfix. Have a look at zimbra and where it's gets the information for the admin ui statistics, you'll be able to use them in cacti (I think).
