What is the DroboFS missing that almost all other enterprise storage devices have?
SNMP support! Well, not anymore!
Please find linked below my first DroboApp to contribute to the community. It is an SNMP daemon for the DroboFS. Next up is a webapp that uses the apache DroboApp to display perty graphs of the drobo’s performance!
From the netsnmp.README:
Package File: netsnmp.tgz
App Name: net-snmp server
Packager: Redvers Davies
SNMP is the Simple Network Management Protocol. It is the method by which
network and server monitoring software remotely polls for disk usage, network
usage etc etc. Use this application to provide statistics on drobo usage
Net-SNMP is the most common snmp daemon for linux and is packaged with
almost every linux distribution. It is now available here in droboapp format
for the DroboFS.
It is configured by default to use version 1 of SNMP with a community string
of “public”. The configuration can be modified by editing the etc/snmpd.conf
file. Documentation for the configuration format can be found online.
More Technical Stuff:
This is a straightforward compile and build of version 5.5 of net-snmp from
sources useing the drobo SDK. The _r0 suffix to the version signifies
my packaging release.
Please send bugs and drobo-specific questions to the Packager, not the
net-snmp mailing-list or authors.
