Using SNMP to collect hosts’ power status and system settings

Rcse (Programmer)

Hello,

I’ve been searching for OIDs that I can use to collect information on remote hosts power settings like their standby and hibernate settings. Also, need to find out if the host is busy, idle or asleep for research purposes. I found OIDs to get the devices HW, SW types and uptime, but not much luck for the rest!!

I am considering creating my own MIB variables. I thinking I should:

1. Find out where the settings reside in the system.
2. Find a way to read setting values.
3. Create MIB variables to store those setting values in and store them in a MIB table.
4. Install the MIB table on the host.

Can anyone point out how to create MIB variables? How to add the created variable to the MIBs table?

Thanks in advance for any help or hints.

Regards,
