Add trap destinations for SNMP alerts

You can add up to 10 servers for sending SNMP traps.

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Select Settings > Alerts.
  2. Select the SNMP tab.
    The currently defined trap destinations appear in the table.
  3. Select Add Trap Desinations.
    The Add Trap Destinations dialog box opens.
  4. Enter one or more trap destinations, select their associated community names, and then click Add.
    • Trap Destination – Enter an IPv4 or IPv6 address of the server running an SNMP service.
    • Community name – From the drop-down, select the community name for this trap destination. (If you defined only one community name, the name already appears in this field.)
    • Send Authentication Failure Trap – Select this option (the checkbox) if you want to alert the trap destination whenever an SNMP request is rejected because of an unrecognized community name.
    After you click Add, the trap destinations and associated community names appear in the table.
  5. To make sure a trap is valid, select a trap destination from the table, and then click Test Trap Destination to send a test trap to the configured address.

Result

The event monitor sends SNMP traps to the server(s) whenever an alertable event occurs.
