To find out the status of a print device with a legacy
SNMP manager using a WIMS Proxy, specify in a Schedule
a GetElements action as follows:
ActionTargetURIs = "snmp://example.com"
ActionTargetObjects = (sequence of)
ActionManagedEntityType = "Device"
(generic Device object planned for WIMS)
ActionManagedEntityURI = "*"
(wildcard for any device at target agent)
ActionRequestedElements = (sequence of)
ActionRequestedElement = "pwg-sm:PrtViewDeviceStatus"
(includes every interesting HR MIB state attribute)
ActionRequestedElement = "pwg-sm:PrtViewGeneralStatus"
(interesting state attributes from PrtGeneralTable)
ActionParameters (omitted, no vendor extensions needed)
(Note that managed entity type of "Printer" won't work, because
it's only an abstract service object in PWG SM/1.0 and does NOT
contain the PrtViews complex element - eventually, the fully
qualified elements would be "pwg-sm:Device.PrtView...")
Harry, I hope this helps.
