QlikView provides SNMP agents for all services.

Information noteQlikView supports the iReasoning MIB browser for pulling data from the SNMP agents.

The SNMP setting is off by default, since the implementation is in its initial stages and subject to change. At the time of writing, reading operations from the agents are enabled. The following messages are supported:

  • GetRequest
  • GetResponse
  • GetNextRequest

All services answer the standard SNMP queries (see below).

Standard SNMP queries
Identifier Query Description sysDescr

Description of service/product.


sysDescr.0:Qlikview Publisher Commandcenterservice version 8.50.600 sysObjectID

Unit type.

Example: sysUpTime

System uptime.


sysUpTime.0:0 hours, 12 minutes, 15 seconds sysContact

Can be set in the configuration file.


sysContact.0:Unspecified System contact sysName

Can be set in the configuration file.


sysName.0:Unspecified name sysLocation

Can be set in the configuration file.


sysLocation.0:Unspecified location sysService

Constant, 72 means application server.



The QlikView Distribution Service can answer additional queries. These are specified in the MIB file.

MIB File

Each service has a configuration file, which is stored in the subfolder for the service in the installation folder. For example, the configuration file for the QlikView Distribution Service is QlikViewdistributionService.exe.config.

The SNMP settings can be adjusted in the SNMP SETTINGS part of the configuration file. SNMP has to be enabled for all services (the default is off).

SNMP settings
Setting Description
EnableSNMP Enables the SNMP listener. The default value is false.
SNMPPort Sets the port to use for the particular Publisher service. See the default settings for each service below.
SNMPsysContact Contact information for the person responsible for the managed node. The default value is Unspecified System contact.
SNMPsysName An administratively assigned name for the managed node. By convention, this is the fully qualified domain name of the node. If the name is unknown, the value is a zero-length string. If left empty, it defaults to the current machine name. The default value is Unspecified name.
SNMPsysLocation Physical location of the node (for example, “telephone closet, third floor”). The default value is Unspecified location.
DebugSNMP Enables the extended debug log for the SNMP listener. The default value is false.

The default port settings for the services are listed below.

Default port settings
Service Default Port Setting
QlikView Management Service 4781
Directory Service Connector 4731
QlikView Distribution Service 4721 (default SNMP port)
QlikView Server 161
QlikView Web Server 4751

All ports can be configured. If the services are installed on different machines, they can all run on the same port. The ports change as the implementation moves away from the experimental SNMP range and into the range allotted by Qlik.

MIB File

A MIB file is included in the QlikView delivery, so that all SNMP managers can interpret the additional responses from the QlikView Distribution Service. Note, however, that the MIB file is subject to change. The file is installed in \QlikView\Support Tools. The support tools require a customized installation.

The QlikView Distribution Service can answer the queries listed below, in addition to the ones previously mentioned.

Other queries
Identifier Query QDSTaskExecuteStatusTable QDSTaskExecuteStatusEntry QDSTaskID (task ID number) QDSTaskName (task name)

QDSTaskExecuteStatus (task status):

  • Waiting
  • Running
  • Aborting
  • Failed
  • Warning QDSTaskNextExecutionAt (when the task will be executed next) QDSTaskLastExecutedAt (when the task was executed last) QDSTaskCurrentWork (what the task is currently doing)
