    Detecting that the snmp agent of an asset has stopped responding

    Hi all,

     

    We use a Gateway Agent to poll data from assets that run an snmp agent (using the snmp driver of the Gateway). Sometimes the snmp agant on the asset crashes. We would like to be able to detect this.

     

    The assets have the ability to respond to icmp ping's.

     

    Using only the snmp driver, it is (as far as I know) not possible to dintinguish between a asset that has been powered off and an asset that has a crashed snmp agent (these are both considered as being offline.

     

    Can the Gateway Agent be configured to detect the difference?
