SNMP to Excel: Writing SNMP data to Excel
Our program allows writing data to a CSV files that can be opened in Excel and that will contain the history of value changes.
1. You should add the necessary SNMP values the way it is described in the "Writing SNMP to MSSQL" section (fig. 1-3)
2. Enable writing the received data to a log file of the CSV format (fig. 1). By default, the program generates files in the Excel format. You can customize the format of the CSV file if you click the "Advanced" button.
Fig. 1 Configuring the log file
Note 1. You should take into account that the "C:\logs" folder must be available for writing. Do not try to write log files to the root folder of the C:\ drive, the "Program Files" folder of the "Windows" folder. Starting from Windows Vista, only the Administrator can write to them.
Note 2. If you use the program as a Windows service, by default the service will be run by the system account that has restricted permissions to create and write files.
Note 3. An Excel file may contain up to 65000 rows. Therefor you need to create a new CSV file periodically (depends on amount of your data).
