|Oracle SNMP Support Reference Guide
Part Number A96672-01
This guide covers the Oracle SNMP Support feature and the public and private MIBs that support its use with certain products. This information is provided to assist you in developing SNMP-based management applications for these products.
This manual is intended primarily for third-party developers of SNMP-based management applications. While these readers may have a good working knowledge of SNMP, they may not be as familiar with relational databases, or Oracle products in particular. A secondary audience for this manual includes database administrators, who may be familiar with Oracle products, but who may be less familiar with SNMP.
Our goal is to make Oracle products, services, and supporting documentation accessible, with good usability, to the disabled community. To that end, our documentation includes features that make information available to users of assistive technology. This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle Corporation is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers.

The Oracle SNMP Support Reference Guide includes five chapters and six appendices.
Provides a general overview of Oracle SNMP Support for the Oracle Database Server, Listener, Oracle Connection Manager, Oracle Names and Oracle Enterprise Manager. It covers the benefits, basic terms and components of the feature.
Provides procedures to configure SNMP on Windows NT, Unix, and the Oracle Enterprise Manager.
Describes the Oracle products providing SNMP support, the MIBs supporting these products, and how to interpret SNMP object identifiers (OIDs).
Includes suggestions to assist you in developing the most useful management applications for Oracle products. Using a sufficient sample size to calculate ratios, presenting performance ratios graphically, scaling values dynamically, working around the wraparound, and the top twenty database performance ratios are covered.
Covers the format used to describe MIB variables in the appendices of this manual.
Provides information to help you interpret and present individual variables of the private Oracle Database MIBs. These variables support monitoring of the Oracle Server.
Provides information to help you interpret and present individual variables of the private Oracle Listener MIB. These variables support monitoring of the listener service.
Provides information to help you interpret and present individual variables of the private Oracle Names MIB. These variables support monitoring of the Oracle Net Services components.
Provides information to help you interpret and present individual variables of the public RDBMS MIB. These variables support monitoring of the Oracle.
Provides information to help you interpret and present individual variables of the public Network Services MIB. These variables support monitoring of the Oracle Server and Oracle Net Services components.
Provides information to help you interpret and present individual variables of the private Oracle Enterprise Manager MIB. These variables support monitoring of databases with Oracle Enterprise Manager.
Any developer of management applications for Oracle SNMP Support must be familiar with SNMP concepts. Standard texts include:
Relevant RFCs include:
Relevant Oracle MIB Definitions include:
The following syntax conventions are used in this manual:
Monospace shows computer display or contains text you must enter exactly as shown.
Monospace in italics represents a command parameter or variable. Substitute an appropriate value.
Uppercase characters within the text represent command names, filenames, and directory names. Note that in case-sensitive operating systems, such as UNIX, these names may not necessarily be in upper-case.
Text in italics usually indicates a variable for which you need to substitute a value. Italics are also used to draw attention to the first instance of a defined term in the text.
