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

Before you begin
  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 or user names, and then click Add.

    • Trap Destination — Enter an IPv4 or IPv6 address of the server running an SNMP service.

    • Community name or User name — From the drop-down, select the community name (SNMPv2c) or user name (SNMPv3) for this trap destination. (If you defined only one, 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 or user name. After you click Add, the trap destinations and associated community names or user 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.


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