SNMP MIB for PostgreSQL?

SNMP MIB for PostgreSQL?

Post by Chris Hard » Tue, 14 Aug 2001 05:18:26

Greetings.  I'm looking into to doing some detailed performance
monitoring of a Postgres instance (as a general project, not for a
specific setup).  I was inspired to research it after spending some
time setting up the same for Oracle, which has some built-in handling
for MIBs (generic and Oracle-specific), which could be queried by SNMP
and then visualized with applications like MRTG and Cricket.  Database
administrators love that stuff. :)

I did some research and it doesn't seem like there's much out there
for Postgres.  I saw a thread from earlier this year (Feb-Mar 2001) on
performance monitoring in general, and there was some good discussion,
but I can't tell if anything substantial came out of it.  I saw Bruce
Momjian's tcl/tk monitor application, which looks great, but I'm
interested in something with higher granularity and more accessibility
(e.g. via the web).

In any case, I'm wondering if anyone has A) pointers to projects
working on or thinking about this already, B) reasons why it's not a
good idea or not possible, or C) ideas about how to proceed with
creating something useful.

1. SNMP MIB s for Oracle

Does Oracle publish their MIBs?  With my current installation I have
something which ends in .mib (orainit.mib) but is not an ASN1 MIB, but
rather a list of names and corresponding OIDS.  This is inadequate.

Can someone point me to ASN1 MIBS for Oracle?  Or tell me if they are
not public.  I need to use SNMP to manage Oracle quickly, and need the

Currently the snmp agent for Oracle is up and running (I can do an snmp
walk on it).

Regards and thanks,
