Creating an SNMP Trap Destination

This article applies to: Product Version
Tmedia 2.9, 2.10, 3.0, 3.2
SBC 3.0, 3.1

SNMP traps are automatically generated on TMedia platforms by the NetSNMP installation, which monitors hardware and software interfaces registered with the ifTable of the IF-MIB module. When the operation status of an interface changes, a trap is generated by NetSNMP, and sent to a destination address for processing. In order for traps to be generated, an SNMP trap destination must be defined in the Web Portal.

To create an SNMP trap destination, do the following:
NOTE: The procedure will vary, dependng on whether you create a trap destination for SNMPv1/v2, or for SNMPv3.
