Development of this ZenPack is sponsored by: Nova Networks


Submitted by: Ryan Matte



This ZenPack consists of all the publicly available (and edited to be loadable into Zenoss) MIBs for Cisco devices. The MIBs may be used for translating SNMP traps.


There are a very large number of MIBs included in this ZenPack (1412). The screenshot shows a few of the many MIBs included.







There are a very large number of MIBs included in this ZenPack (1412), so it is advised that you install with the command-line rather than the UI so it does not time-out. It may still take 4 or 5  hours to process.


zenpack --install ZenPacks.Nova.Cisco.Mibs-1.2-py2.7.egg


Having  this ZenPack installed appears to slow down the UI in Zenoss 2.x or earlier (this step is not required for Zenoss 3.x and later versions). A work-around has  been found to delete the ZenPack and leave the MIBs installed. To do  this, start zendmd and enter the following:


>>> dmd.ZenPackManager.packs._delObject('ZenPacks.Nova.Cisco.Mibs')
>>> commit()


Performing  these steps will eliminate the performance issues, while leaving the  MIBs installed. The first line will take about 15 minutes to complete,  the commit may take another 7-10.


The details for the  modifications to the original MIBs, the steps to build this ZenPack and  further instructions are listed here.
