I need my labview application to act as a SNMP agent. How can I load the MIB file ? I dont have any idea how does this toolkit works.I want my machine to work as server necesserily.
As I told you I am using SNMPv3 because I need encryption and authentication and after i got my MIB compiled I used the SimpleSNMPv3.vi that came with the toolkit in the Examples folder.
To compile your MIB you must have all your files in the same folder and change all their extensions to .mib. Then use the vi I send you to compile it. Copy this VI to the folder \SNMPToolkit_v201_FullDev(7)\SNMPToolkit_v201_FullDev(7)\SNMPSubvis\NameLookup.
To compile, you just have to point to the folder where your files are. If you get errors compiling you can see the error log: \SNMPToolkit_v201_FullDev(7)\SNMPToolkit_v201_FullDev(7)\SNMPSubvis\NameLookup\MibCompileError.txt. You can also try with the MIB example files that are provided with the toolkit.
Once you get to compile correctly your MIB you can try to use the SimpleSNMPv3.vi to do Get request or whatever you need.
For other snmp versions I don't know how to proceed, you should contact VIODIA to get support.
i am a starter with a SNMP toolkit so i really didnt get you about the file which are u talking about. just let me know the details please..
I think you should read about the SNMP protocol before trying to use the toolkit... Then you will understand a little bit more about it and maybe about the toolkit and it's VIs.
i have gone through the SNMP protocol. now i want to write my own MIB. Have u writtened your own MIB? if so then can you please tell me how do i start with it. My application is energy metering.
