This chapter provides an overview of the Oracle Communications Network Integrity MIB-II SNMP cartridge.
The MIB-II SNMP cartridge enables you to discover devices in your network using the SNMP protocol.The cartridge produces a logical device hierarchy that represents the discovered device and includes a logical device instance and child interface(s) or subInterface instance(s) (collectively called interfaces).
Figure 1-1 shows a discovered logical device.
This section provides information on dependencies that the MIB-II SNMP cartridge has on other cartridges.
For the MIB-II SNMP cartridge to work at run time, the Address_Handlers cartridge must be deployed to Network Integrity.
To review and extend the Network Integrity MIB-II SNMP cartridge, you must first download the Oracle Communications Network Integrity MIB-II SNMP Cartridge media pack from the Oracle software delivery web site:
The media pack contains the MIB-II SNMP cartridge ZIP file, which has the following structure:
The \UIM_Cartridge_Projects\ora_ni_uim_device\ project contains the model project used by the MIB-II SNMP cartridge.
The \Network_Integrity_Cartridge_Projects\MIB_II_SNMP_Cartridge\ project contains the extensible Design Studio files.
See the Design Studio online Help and Network Integrity Developer's Guide for information about opening files in Design Studio. See Network Integrity Concepts for guidelines and best practices for extending cartridges.
