Hello Cactis,

I am running Cacti on a Linux host and found the other BES template which uses WMI difficult to install so I created one to use SNMP.

You need to have Windows Server SNMP Service installed and then install the BES snmp files on your BES server. Go to the RIM knowledge base and search for SNMP for instructions for more info.

I put each item on it's own graph as my pending messages are quite high all the time. I also did not like the messages per second values listed at the bottom of each graph so I modified the graphs so they would provide messages per 5 minutes. The actual graph looks the same either way. If you want per second just go to each graph and change the CDEF function from Make Per 5 Minutes to None for each Item. I didn't like seeing 0.01 messages sent, I'd rather see 20 messages sent over the last 5 minutes. Just a personal preference.

These are the SNMP values I am querying:
besSysHealthV1MsgsPending.1 4980 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3530.5.25.1.202.1 = INTEGER: 4467
besSysHealthV1TotalMsgsSent.1 79843 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3530.5.25.1.203.1 = INTEGER: 79898
besSysHealthV1TotalMsgsReceived.1 2330536 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3530.5.25.1.204.1 = INTEGER: 2334790
besSysHealthV1TotalMsgsExpired.1 1511 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3530.5.25.1.205.1 = INTEGER: 1511
besSysHealthV1TotalMsgsFiltered.1 36034 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3530.5.25.1.206.1 = INTEGER: 36581

They are all counters except for MsgsPending.

I am attaching the host template which should have everything needed.

Hope this helps someone as I got a lot of help from these forums. :)

I am using BES 5.0and the OIDs are not working, seems your OIIDs work for version 4 only, right?
I have the new MIB from my 5.0 installation, i tried to find them but no luck...

I think you are right. We have been on version 5 for months but I seem to recall having to do something to get it to work. Here is an updated host template. See if that works.

Not sure why mine's not working - I'm getting nan everywhere, although Cacti allowed me to add the BES server, and queries it fine to retrieve machine name, location, etc.

In the OP, there was something mentioned about "install the BES snmp files on your BES server". I searched for it, but cannot find anything related to "BES snmp files".

I've had this working before on a different Cacti server pointing to a different BES server, but cannot figure out why it won't work this time.

Anyone?
