TitleHow to link SNMP Server to HiveManager Classic
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol used for organizing and collecting information about managed devices on the network. To use SNMP with the Hivemanager, an SNMP server set up independently from the HiveManager will be needed.
  • SNMP Configuration
  • Connecting HiveManager to SNMP

Hivemanager On-Premise:

Go to Home> Administration> Hive Manager Services> Check the box next to SNMP Server Settings.

Enter the SNMP Community string.

  • The SNMP Community String is the text string that must accompany traps from the Hive Manager to the management station. The community string is similar to a password, in that the management station only accepts requests from devices that know the correct community string. This can be up to 32 characters long and cannot include spaces.

Create a SNMP Trap Receiver object by clicking on the plus icon.

Enter the Object name.

  • Best practice is to use the IP address of your SNMP Server so this object is easier to identify in lists.

Under IP Entry enter the IP address of the SNMP server.

  • It's also possible to change the top options to use an IP Range, Host name, Network, Wildcard, or web page (in cases using a Captive Web Portal).

Click Save at the top

Select the object that was just created and click Update.

  • When SNMP is configured and enabled, the Hive Manager sends the traps listed below to the SNMP management station, but will not accept queries itself.

Hivemanager Online:

The above option is not available in Hivemanager Online so you will proceed from here.

Once the SNMP Server is enabled in the HiveManager settings, create the SNMP Object and Traffic Filter within the Network Policy.

  • Additional Settings > Management Server Settings
  • Be sure to create the SNMP object here and Save to apply it to the network policy. Depending on the requirements of the network, select get or trap or both as well as the Version.

Create a Traffic Filter object within Additional Settings > Traffic Filter Settings and be sure to check the box for SNMP and apply the traffic filter to the Policy. 

  • Additionally, apply the Traffic Filter object within each SSID under Optional Settings > DoS Prevention and Filters > Traffic Filter (at the bottom).
  • It's possible to reuse the same Traffic Filter object with SNMP enabled created in the previous step.
