Support will need at least the three following items to create a device certification request:
1. CUSTOMER DETAILS
UIM Support will need customer details like contact information, device model, etc. Please, fill out the 'Information_Needed.txt' file in the zip.
2. SAPWALK UTILITY OUTPUT
Open the SAPWALK UTILITY folder to run the utility. There will be a version for Windows (zip file), Solaris, and Linux 32 and 64-bit.
Check out the readme file for instructions on how to actually run the utility.
Please start the walk at the 220.127.116.11 OID value to ensure that all required information is gathered.
This utility can also be found here on the SNMPC Device Support Website.
3. MetricsToMonitor spreadsheet filled out
Open the MetricsToMonitor.xlsx file attached to this document and fill out the corresponding fields.
This includes device-specific information like OIDs, Object Name, etc.
Once you have the above information/files prepared, attach them to your Support Ticket.
The UIM Support Device Cert team will review this and let you know if any additional information is required.
Please note that UIM metrics must be numbers (integers, percentages, real numbers, etc). Text cannot be collected and stored by UIM probes as metrics.
Note: For calculated/derived metrics, please provide the formula/expression and list all metrics/OIDs involved in the calculation.
Once a Device Certification has been completed and released, please follow the steps in the documentation to apply the certification:

In the meantime, if you would like to self-certify the device (using self certification), see the video and text content at:

The following article provides an example on how to create self-certification for snmpcollector:
