Issue/Introduction

When trying to write a custom metric family and vendor certification, the MIB, which is already used in existing vendor certifications from this vendor may be out of date as the OIDs being targeted are in a relatively new table.

Do MIBs need to be updated in CAPM or is just having the OIDs in the vendor certification XML sufficient?

Cause

A newer version of the MIB can be imported to allow for access to the latest OIDs/metrics.

Environment

DX NetOps CAPM Release 20.2 or later

Resolution

Import/Upload a MIB file into CAPM as follows:

  1. Login to CAPC GUI 

  2. Administration -> Data Sources -> Data Aggregator -> Vendor Certifications 

  3. Click on the "Import" button:



  4. Select the MIB file to import.
