OID for product family

This question was originally posted by Stuart on APC forums on 6/5/2016


What OID are other folks using, to identify the 'family' of APC product family?

I start with upsBasicIdentModel.0, which gets me responses like "Smart-UPS 5000", Symmetra, Silcon, etc.  Pretty useful.

But with all other APC products, I fall back to "experimental.2.2.1.5.1", which gets me values like "Rack PDU" and "Modular PDU".  Also pretty useful ... but I dislike relying on 'experimental' OIDs.

I suppose I could parse sysDescr, extract "AN1", and build a table mapping things like 'rpdu2' to "Rack PDU" and 'xrdp' to "Modular PDU".  Seems crude to me, but hey.

Does anyone have a spiffier way of determining, via SNMP, what 'product family' hosts the mgmt card you are currently querying?

you can parse SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 (OID .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0) for MN:xxxxx and that's the model # Here's what the string looks like in one of mine:

SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: APC Web/SNMP Management Card (MB:v3.9.2 PF:v3.9.0 PN:apc_hw02_aos_390.bin AF1:v3.7.4 AN1:apc_hw02_rpdu_374.bin MN:AP7832 HR

You get more than just a model number 🙂
