Using SNMP data mapping tables

Inventory for Network Devices

SNMP data mapping tables let you define how to map SNMP devices to the data that you want to gather. Inventory for Network Devices provides predefined SNMP data mapping tables for common SNMP devices. The predefined tables are read-only and cannot be edited.

If you manage network devices in a large infrastructure, you can export configured SNMP data mapping tables and send them to other locations within your organization. This method is an easy way to ensure that all Notification Servers that use Inventory for Network Devices gather the same inventory.

See “To export an SNMP data mapping table ”

You can also test table definitions to ensure that you have defined the field values for a table definition correctly. When you test the table, you test it on a single device that you specify.

See “To test an SNMP data mapping table on a single device ”
