You can tune overall SNMP communications by changing the values of the attributes in the Attribute Editor’s SNMP Communication folder. The following attributes define how
CA Spectrum
communicates with a device:
  • SNMP Community String
    Lets the
    communicate with devices on your network.
  • DCM Timeout (ms)
    The number of milliseconds the polling agent will wait for a response from the device before timing out.
  • DCM Retry Count
    Specifies the number of times the
    retries to establish device communication after the DCM timeout value expires.
  • Polling Interval (sec)
    The number of seconds between polls
    CA Spectrum
    makes to devices.
    Increasing this number results in less SNMP-related traffic on your network and a smaller load on the
    . Decreasing this number for mission critical devices and interfaces lets you see updated information about these devices in OneClick more often. This can improve your ability to see potential issues on the network before they affect network performance. A decreased Polling Interval will result in more SNMP network traffic generated by
    CA Spectrum
    .
  • Poll To Log Ratio
    The number of polls per log. If it is set to 3, then data is logged every third poll.
