Using Send trap action

Use the Send trap action in the SNMP package to send messages to the SNMP manager from an SNMP agent. These messages are sent by an SNMP agent whenever certain events occur, such as a system restart.

Procedure

  1. In the Actions palette, double-click or drag the Send trap action from the SNMP package.
  2. In the Agent field, enter details of the device on which the SNMP agent is available.
  3. In the SNMP Version section, select an option to specify the SNMP version to be used.
    OptionAction
    V1 Specify the community string you want to use in the Community field.
    V2C Specify the community string you want to use in the Community field.
    V3 Specify the community string you want to use in the Community field.

    Select an option from the Authentication level list to specify the authentication level you want to use.

    • None: No authentication will be used.
    • Authentication Only: Enables you to use authentication only.
      1. Select MD5 or SHA from the Authentication method list to specify the authentication method you want to use.
      2. Select Credential to use a value from the Credential Vault, Variable to use a credential variable, or Insecure string to manually specify the value you want to use.
    • Authentication and privacy: Enables you to use authentication and privacy.
      1. Select MD5 or SHA from the Authentication method list to specify the authentication method you want to use.
      2. Select Credential to use a value from the Credential Vault, Variable to use a credential variable, or Insecure string to manually specify the value you want to use.
      3. Select DES or AES from the Privacy method list to specify the privacy method you want to use.
      4. Select Credential to use a value from the Credential Vault, Variable to use a credential variable, or Insecure string to manually specify the value you want to use.
  4. In the Object ID field, specify the ID of the object for which you want to retrieve details.
  5. Optional: In the Authorative ID field, specify the ID of the SNMP manager that will receive the notification.
    Important: If you have selected V3 from the SNMP Version list, you must provide a value for Authorative ID.
  6. Select an option from the Select trap type list to specify the type of trap you want to send.
    • Cold start: Occurs when the SNMP agent initializes its configuration tables.
    • Warm start: Occurs when the SNMP agent reinitializes its configuration tables.
    • Link down: Occurs when the state of a network adapter on the SNMP agent changes from up to down.
    • Link up: Occurs when the state of a network adapter on the SNMP agent changes from down to up.
    • Authentication fail: Occurs when the SNMP agent receives a message from an SNMP manager with an invalid community name.
    • EGP neighbour loss: Occurs when the SNMP agent cannot communicate with its Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP) peer.
    • Enterprise specific: Occurs when specific error conditions and error codes are defined in the system. The user provides a trap-specific number for this option.
  7. In the SNMP advanced option section, complete the following fields:
    • Timeout: Specify the time (in milliseconds) for the action to wait before generating an error.
    • Remote port: Specify the port number of the remote device.
    • Retries: Specify the maximum number of times the action must try to retrieve the details.
  8. In the Result section, select an option:
    • Control Room file: Uses a file that is available on the Control Room to store the result.
    • Desktop file: Uses a file that is available on a device to store the result.
    • Variable: Uses a file variable to specify the file location that you want to use to store the result.
