SNMP Proxies: General
Configuration Options Related Tasks Related Topics
Use this page to provide the information that the WebLogic SNMP agent needs to forward (proxy) requests from SNMP managers to an SNMP agent.
WebLogic Server forwards only the requests whose OIDs are under the OID root that you specify on this page.
- You cannot use the WebLogic SNMP agent as a proxy for SNMP agents in other WebLogic Server domains. 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 proxying requests to multiple WebLogic Server domains, you can place all of your server instances in a single domain and send requests directly to each Managed Server.
Name Description Name
The name of this proxy configuration.
This should be descriptive of the agent that the requests will be forwarded to, such as "SQLDBAgent."
The port number on which the proxied SNMP agent is listening.
The root of the object identifier (OID) tree that the proxied SNMP agent controls.
The community name to be passed on for all requests to the proxied SNMP agent.
A value of na causes WebLogic Server to pass the community name that is contained in incoming SNMP requests.
The amount of time (in milliseconds) that the SNMP proxy waits for a response to requests that are forwarded to another SNMP agent.
If the interval elapses without a response, the WebLogic SNMP agent sends an error to the requesting manager.
