With IPHost Network Monitor you can run simple snmp requests against a IBM device in your network.
[FS] p1-p2 token: log to file/syslog for levels 'p1' to 'p2'
-- "This MIB has two conformance groups providing complementary -- functions: -- -- - The ibmBnaLocalTgConfGroup allows an APPN node that -- implements the APPN Branch Network Architecture to -- identify its uplinks and downlinks, and to distinguish -- between downlinks that go to end nodes and those that go -- to cascaded branch network nodes. -- -- - The ibmBnaTopoConfGroup allows an APPN network node to -- relay two pieces of information from the shared network -- topology database for its topology subnet: -- -- - which network nodes in the subnet support branch -- awareness; -- - for TGs owned by network nodes with branch -- awareness, which of them are branch TGs and which -- ones are not. -- -- In addition, the ibmBnaDirConfGroup provides an object for -- reporting APPN directory information related to an LU situated -- below a node that implements the APPN Branch Network -- Architecture. Table of objects that identify the branch uplinks and downlinks for an APPN node implementing the APPN Branch Network Architecture. This table is effectively an extension to the appnLocalTgTable defined in the APPN MIB (RFC nnnn). If an implementation that supports the architecture has its branch network node support disabled, then this table is empty. Conversely, if a Management Station determines that there are entries present in this table, then by implication the agent where the table resides currently has its branch network node functionality enabled.
