SNMP resources monitor

Supported in versions: LoadRunner Enterprise 2021 and 2021 R1 only

The SNMP Resources monitor shows statistics for a Windows or UNIX machine using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The SNMP Resources monitor is available for monitoring any machine that runs an SNMP agent, using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

To set up the SNMP monitor:

  1. Prerequisite

    If your monitor accesses a server outside of your internal network, you may need to set up a web proxy to collect data from it. For details, see Use a proxy server.

  2. Select a resources folder

    Select a resources folder for the monitor profile in the resources tree, or create a new folder as follows:

    1. From the LoadRunner Enterprise navigation toolbar, click and select Monitors (under Assets).

    2. Click New Folder and enter a name for the monitor resources folder.

  3. In the test resource tree, select an existing monitor profile, or click New Monitor Profile and create a new monitor profile.

  4. In the Monitor Profile page, click Add Monitor and select SNMP.

    Enter the name or IP address of the server to monitor.

    Note: LoadRunner Enterprise connects to default SNMP port 161. To use a different port number, specify the machine name in the following format: <server name>:<port number>

    Concatenate SNMP Levels

    For SNMP object nodes with ten or more levels, select to display the sub-levels as a single string, separated by periods (.).

  6. Click Get Counters to display a list of available counters, and select the ones that you want to monitor. By default, the list displays all nodes of the SNMP objects in a tree-level hierarchy.

  7. Associate the monitor with your test
