How to monitor vServers in several partitions


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


I am not able to monitor the listed OIDs for vServers on our system with multiple partitions.

I am not sure if I need to monitor the internal partition instead.



So far, I have followed this guide to configure "SNMP monitoring for partition resource utilization". It mentions "To monitor partition resources, you must configure the SNMP community in the default partition. Wherein, the partitionTable is maintained in the default partition, and the SNMP communication is done through the NSIP address of the appliance."


Link: https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-adc/current-release/admin-partition/snmp-support-for-admin-partitions.html


Still, when monitoring through the NSIP, I am unable to monitor the vServers in partitions.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Did you also specify the -allpartitions enabled flag?  

add snmp trap <trapClass> <trapDestination> [-version <version>] [-td <positive_integer>] [-destPort <port>] [-communityName <string>] [-srcIP <ip_addr|ipv6_addr>] [-severity <severity>] [-allPartitions ( ENABLED | DISABLED )]


Also confirm which version adc you are using in case someone knows if there is a relevant bug.

The documentation seems to only address the use of some extra traps / oids that relate to the partition usage, and not to the more mainstream SNMP polling.


Whilst it APPEARS that the partition objects should be visible at the "system" level, it makes sense that they are NOT: it is possible to have objects (eg LBVS) in a partition with the same name as a different object in a different partition - so how would you differentiate?


Sounds like you need to speak to Citrix Support (and do let us know the answer!)
