SCOM SNMP Monitor Issues

While creating a test SNMP Probe which produced alerts, we encountered issues around how to match the returned SNMP value for a Cisco Device's CPU OID.

To return the SNMP value you can use;

"/DataItem/SnmpVarBinds/SnmpVarBind[1]/Value" without the quotes.

Also we found issues when using expression matching on numeric values returned via SNMP. this is due to the wizard creating the rules to expect String datatypes rather than Integer. The article can be found here.
