SNMP and Clusters

When working with a cluster of GigaVUE H Series nodes, you configure SNMP hosts and notification events from the leader leader in clustering node relationship (formerly master)/VIP address. The settings are then pushed to each node. However, when a clustered node sends an SNMP notification, it is sent from its own Mgmt port, not from the leader/VIP address.

In addition, you browse each individual clustered node’s MIB separately, not over the VIP/leader.

Note:  A GigaVUE TA Series node can never assume the role of a leader in a clustered environment.
