I’m a member of the Prometheus monitoring project. We provide support for monitoring a wide variety of systems.
In order to support monitoring of devices that support SNMP, we have to create a config file to translate SNMP OIDs into Prometheus metrics.
We have a tool that automatically generates these configs based on SNMP walk trees and the MIB files that specify which metrics are available.
We have a user requesting support for A10 devices, but there doesn’t seem to be any public way to get access to the MIBs so we can officially support A10.
Please let me know if it’s possible to have these MIBs published, even if an account registration is required, in order for us to provide support for your devices.February 24, 2017 at 12:16 pm #10522
For A10 Thunder Series 4.x, SNMP MIBs can be downloaded from the Thunder device GUI as documented in “Downloading the MIBs” section of System Administration and Configuration Guide. For earlier releases such as the Thunder 2.x series the recommended approach would be to login into A10 support center and download the official MIBs from there.

Neither of these options are possible for our project as we need to be able to automatically generate data based on the MIBs.
Without minimal public access to MIBs this means that A10 will not be supportable by our monitoring system.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of format are you looking for on this?
Is it ok for you/ Prometheus to download the zipped mib files from a public web site? Or, something like http://www.oidview.com/mibs/detail.html or http://www.snmplink.org/cgi-bin/nd/m/Ent/A/A10%20Networks,%20Inc.%20(formerly%20Raksha%20Networks,%20Inc)/A10-AX-MIB?
Thanks.February 27, 2017 at 11:34 pm #10602
We need the original MIB files in order to process them with the netsnmp tools. We prefer to be able to get them directly from vendors in order make sure we get them from the authoritative source. Plus we need to make sure that we do not violate any license restrictions on MIBs. Some vendors have restrictive licenses on their MIBs so we can’t include them. Having the vendor directly publish the MIB with the license intact is a good way for us to be sure that we’re legally ok.April 4, 2018 at 11:06 am #14152
Downloading the MIBs
The MIB files are available for download through the GUI:
1. Hover over System on the menu bar, then select Monitoring.
2. Click on the SNMP tab, then select SNMP MIB Download from the drop-down menu.
3. Select a target location for the MIB archive file, then click Save.
