The Alert Communications wizard allows you to set up Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) for sending out alert events to your Network Management system on the SNMP Configuration window.

SQL Diagnostic Manager includes a MIB that you can use in your Network Management System to format the events that are sent by SQL Diagnostic Manager.

The MIB file is located in the root directory of your SQL Diagnostic Manager installation and is named IDERA MIB.

SQL Diagnostic Manager supports SNMPv1 and SNMPv2.

  3. Click Test to verify the connection to the SNMP enabled management console.
  4. Verify that the test event arrived and click OK if the test is successful.
  5. Click Finish.
