MIB-II-INTERFACE network technology integration

ServicePilot network-mib-ii-interface

# MIB-II Interface


This package is designed to monitor a standard MIB-II Interface or Interface list using SNMP.


This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to monitor Standard Network Interface in terms of load, traffic, discards, errors and speed in 32 or 64 bits based on an SNMP collection.


  • SNMP must be configured and started on the MIB-II Interface Device

  • Network Flows - It is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure with a firewall, all of the following flows must be opened:

    • UDP/161 (SNMP): Between ServicePilot Manager and the network device
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between the network device and ServicePilot Agent
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5


Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place and if a ServicePilot Agent is required, that it is communicating correctly with the ServicePilot Manager.

Add resource using Views Configuration web interface

  1. As an administrative user of ServicePilot, open the ServicePilot web interface.
  2. Navigate to Administration. The Configuration > Views web page will open.
  3. Click on the view in which to place the new resource in the Views hierarchy on the left of the interface. The View editor section will show the existing view contents.
  4. From the Packages list on the right of the interface, click and drag the network-mib-ii-interface package into the View editor and let go.
  5. The Resource properties dialog box will open to allow resource configuration.
  6. Click OK to close the Resource properties dialog box. Note that the dialog box will not close if required parameters are not set.
  7. Click Save to apply the new resource to ServicePilot configuration.

Key field notes

In the Monitoring Policies tab, specify the policy or policies to apply to the resource

  1. Basic Parameters tab:

    1. IP address/FQDN: Specify the IP address, host name or FQDN for the MIB-II Interface, as resolvable by the machine on which ServicePilot Manager is running
  2. Interface Type tab: Select the interface creation type,

    1. Auto-Discovery: a separate interface object is created for all interfaces discovered
    2. Single: a single object is created for the specified interface to be monitored
    3. None: only the classes are defined and no views or objects are added to the configuration
  3. Interface Discovery and Filtering tab:

    1. Use Interface filter instead of Addressing Information: tick to get statistics for a specified list on interfaces only. Set it off to get statistics for all available interfaces
    2. {Optional} Ignored Interfaces names separated with '|': Specify name(s) of interface(s) NOT to be monitored
    3. {Optional} Allowed Interfaces names separated with '|': Specify name(s) of interface(s) to be monitored

      Note: Each element of the interface lists is a regular expression as defined by Like Operator (Visual Basic)

  4. Default Interface Parameter Overrides tab:

    1. SNMP Table Index: Specify the index of the interface to be monitored (for Single interface type)
    2. ifSpeed In for Asymetrical Interface (bps): Specify maximum download speed (empty => use ifSpeed)
    3. ifSpeed Out for Asymetrical Interface (bps): Specify maximum upload speed (empty => use ifSpeed)

      Note: The creation type must be single to be able to specify the speed

    4. Redundant Interface Group: Select Yes to have the device failing if all interface fail

      Note: The creation type must be not be single to be able to choose between Yes and No

    5. {Optional} Custom interface speeds (bps) separated with '|': For network interfaces that do not report correct maximum interface speeds in bps or if the speed reported does not reflect known downstream bottlenecks, a | separated list of speed overrides can be included here. Each element of the list consists of an SNMP interface table index or name or alias, an outgoing speed and an incoming speed, comma separated.

      Note: Each element name in the list is a regular expression as defined by Like Operator (Visual Basic)

  5. Graphical tab:

    1. Interface creation type: Specify how the interfaces will appear in the map
  6. Interface Names tab:

    1. {Optional} Custom interface names: name,override '|': To override the name of the interface object created use a | separated list of interface index or original name and new name to be applied, comma separated.
