Issue/Introduction

Need to know which probe we should use to monitor an Alcatel device.

Environment

Release:
Component: UIMSNC

Resolution

The correct probe to use is the snmpcollector probe which should be installed on a hub with sufficient resources.

Before you get started please refer to the following link:
snmpcollector performance tuning and optimization guidelines

Then check to make sure the specific device/model is supported out of the box, otherwise the device may need to be certified through self-certification:
