ProcedureTo Configure Peer Based Master Agent (magt)

You can configure peer based master agent to integrate with OS Native Master Agent on Solaris 10 and Linux by following these steps.

Note –

Solaris 10 OS Native Master Agent is snmpd. By default it runs on SNMP default UDP port 161. This is configurable using /etc/sma/snmp/snmpd.conf file. It provides proxy directive for forwarding the request/response to other Master Agents or Subagent. For more information refer to the snmpd.conf man page.

For Solaris 8 and 9, there is no clean integration with OS Native Master Agent snmpd. For linux, httpagt can directly integrate with snmpd. In that case no need to run magt. For Windows, Sun Java System Web Server snmp library directly communicates with windows SNMP service.

  1. Start the master agent specifying the SNMP port (11161) as mentioned in the note above.

  2. Add the following in /etc/sma/snmp/snmpd.conf for Solaris 10 .

    proxy -v 1 -c public myserver:11161 .
  3. Restart the snmpd.

    # cd /etc/init.d
    # init.dmi stop; init.snmpdx stop; init.sma stop
    # init.dmi start; init.snmpdx start; init.sma start
  4. To get the SNMP data use the snmpwalk on port:

    $ snmpwalk -c public -v 1 <host-name>:<port>
