Output What it means
SNMP Status

Agent status: enabled 
The current state of the Rhino SNMP Agent. Note that this should be considered the "desired" state of the agent and not the actual state of the SNMP agents for each cluster node. Individual SNMP agents on different nodes may have a different state, for example if a failure during startup (such as an port being unavailable) prevented an agent from starting.
Agent details:
 Name: Node ${node-id}
 Description: OpenCloud Rhino
 Location: Unknown location
 Contact: OpenCloud Support (
Descriptions for the SNMP agent when queried, corresponding to the sysName, sysDescr, sysLocation, and sysContact variables from the SNMPv2 MIB. Any system property string (in the form ${} will be replaced, on a per-node basis, so node-specific information can be included (if required). The ${node-id} property is special, and will be substituted with the node ID of the node the agent is running on.
 Enabled versions: v1, v2c, v3
The versions of SNMP currently enabled.
SNMP v1/v2c details:
 Community: public
The current configuration for SNMP v1/v2c.
SNMP v3 details:
 Username:         rhino
 Auth Protocol:    SHA

 Privacy Protocol: AES128
 Privacy Key:      password
 EngineBoots:      3
 EngineTime:       814

 Default subnet:
 Default port range: 16100-16200
 Loopback addresses: ignored

How the SNMP agent responds to automatic port and interface discovery for newly booted Rhino nodes.
 Notifications: enabled
Whether to generate notifications.
Notification configuration
 Notification targets:
Where notifications will be sent (if enabled and not filtered).
 TraceNotification                                  forwarded
 UsageNotification                                  forwarded

 LogNotification                                    forwarded
 SleeStateChangeNotification                        not forwarded
 ServiceStateChangeNotification                     forwarded
 LogRolloverNotification                            forwarded
 AlarmNotification                                  forwarded
Which types of notifications will be sent.
Saved per-node configuration
 101 <default>:16100
 102 <default>:16101
Persisted per-node state of the SNMP system; used to determine what ports/interfaces the SNMP agent for each node should bind to on startup.
Per-node agent status
 101 Running
 102 Running
State of the SNMP agent on each node; includes the actual state of the agent, which may differ from the persisted or desired state.


What it does Activates the Rhino SNMP agent


What it does Deactivates the Rhino SNMP agent
