Issue/Introduction

In order to reproduce certain SNMP related issues, we will sometimes request a sapwalk output file.

How do I run sapwalk?

 

Environment

Release:
Component: APMAGT

Resolution

First, download the sapwalk tool and extract it on the server:

https://ftp.broadcom.com/user/downloads/pub/netqos/supporttools/extratools/sapwalk.zip

Next, follow these very detailed instructions:

  • In a cmd prompt, change to the directory where the sapwalk.exe file was extracted.
     
  • Run the sapwalk utility thusly:

    sapwalk2.exe -i (ip address) -v (snmp version) -s 1.3.6 -c (community name) -xv 1.3.6.1 -o (filename).walk

    Where:
    (ip address) = The IP address of the device at issue
    (snmp version) = The SNMP version the device at issue runs. Valid
    values are:
    v1
    v2c
    v3
    (community name) = The community string for accessing the devices MIB.
    Any valid community string with Read permissions can be used.

     
  • Finally, when sapwalk is done, gather the output file and forward as needed.
