Connectors for network ports using the MIB2 Standard

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are monitoring systems with 10 Gbps ports

What does it fix?

10Gbps ports were being reported as having a link speed of 4294Mbps due to a limitation in the original MIB2 specification. The patch connector uses the extended specification to correctly report the speed of 10Gbps links as 10000Mbps.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following files to the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the managed server:
    • MS_HW_MIB2.hdf
    • MS_HW_MIB2NT.hdf
    • MS_HW_MIB2Linux.hdf
    • MS_HW_MIB2Solaris.hdf
  2. Reinitialize the KM.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
