Memory Status (IBM) service

When this service has a scan interval of less than 5 minutes, the agent may take longer than the scan interval to gather the metrics. As a result, you may notice some scan intervals are not populated.

Memory Status (IBM) monitors the status of specified memory banks on IBM servers.

Special Note

This service operates in conjunction with the vendor-supplied hardware agent and requires SNMP to be configured so that it is accessible from both the N-able N-central Agent and the N-able N-central Probe.

The following are the requirements in order to associate this service with a device:

  • The device must undergo discovery using a Probe-based asset scan.
  • You need to enable SNMP enabled on the device on the Properties tab of the device.
  • Once you enable SNMP for the device, you need to configure a community string. The default community string is public.
