Before you begin
Enable the WebLogic Server SNMP agent (see Configure the SNMP agent) and configure other, non-WebLogic Server, SNMP agents to run on the same computer as the Administration Server.
Note: You cannot use the WebLogic SNMP agent to proxy requests to other WebLogic SNMP agents. For example, WebLogic domainA's SNMP agent cannot proxy requests to domainB's SNMP agent. This limitation is in effect because all WebLogic SNMP agents use the same MIB root.
Instead of using one WebLogic Server domain to proxy requests to other domains, you can place all of your server instances in a single domain. SNMP managers can request monitoring data directly from each Managed Server within the domain.
The WebLogic SNMP agent can forward (proxy) requests from SNMP managers to other SNMP agents that reside on the Administration Server's host computer. WebLogic Server proxies only the requests with object identifiers (OIDs) that are under a specific the OID root. For more information, refer to "SNMP Proxies."
WebLogic Server forwards to the proxy only the requests that are in this OID tree.
After you finish
Restart the Administration Server.
