I have a 3580 on an AS/400 and want to monitor tape status, most importantly, is one actually inserted, using SNMP get.
Find a lot of SNMP details on tape libraries, but for a stand alone drive I assume this would have to come from the OS device status.
Any idea of OID(s) that would be helpful?
Does not look like there is a native OID. Are there any examples of OID extensions using SNMP sub-agents I could look at?
Actually, coding a subagent to extend the IOD tree is a programming function, not an admin function, so probably should be asked elsewhere.
