SNMP objects

The listed Acronis products provide the following Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) objects to SNMP management applications:

  • Type of event
    Object identifier (OID):
    Syntax: OctetString
    The value may be "Information", "Warning", 'Error" and "Unknown". "Unknown" is sent only in the test message.


  • Text description of the event
    Object identifier (OID):
    Syntax: OctetString
    The value contains the text description of the event (it looks identical to messages published by Acronis product in its log).

Supported operations

Acronis products support only TRAP operations. It is not possible to manage Acronis products using GET- and SET- requests. This means that you need to use an SNMP Trap receiver to receive TRAP-messages.

More information

Download Acronis MIB File.

- In Acronis Backup & Recovery 11/11.5 and Acronis Backup Advanced for VMware, the MIB file acronis-abr.mib is located in the installation directory. By default it is  %ProgramFiles%\Acronis\BackupAndRecovery in Windows and /usr/lib/Acronis/BackupAndRecovery in Linux.

- In Acronis vmProtect and Acronis Backup for VMware, the MIB file is unavailable locally.

This file can be read by a MIB browser or a simple text editor such as Notepad or vi.

When configuring SNMP notifications, you can send a test message to check if your settings are correct.

The parameters of the test message are as follows:

  • Type of event
    Value: "Unknown"


  • Text description of the event
    Value: "?00000000"
