Hello 0 new user to core - snmp traps

Postby hachmeis » Wed May 27, 2020 12:57 pm


I am setting up core for the first time and have it up and running OK. Email sends out alerts and I have it monitoring some switches and firewalls.

The next step is configuring it to accept snmp traps and email alerts accordingly.

I have been looking at the various options of plugins and add-ons and was hoping to get some recommendations about the best way to do this. I realize this is somewhat subjective but I'm just looking for a solution that is fairly simple and straightforward.

I use Nagios XI so I can't get too specific about core. Here's a link.
I think a fairly typical path is snmptrapd listens and receives traps, hands them off to SNMPTT, which creates commands in Nagios tht update the status of the trap service in Nagios.
You'll need to set up the trap sender hosts to send traps to the Nagios host, install the device MIBs in the Nagios host and define the device hosts in Nagios and define an SNMP trap service in Nagios.
