The Event Managerapplication (supplied as a library file, EventSNMP.dll) that captures Policy Server events, determines whether SNMP traps are to be generated for those events (as specified by a configuration file) and if so, generates SNMP traps to specified NMS(s).
To configure the Event library (EventSNMP.dll), see Add Event Handler Libraries.
You configure the
CA Single Sign-On
Event Manager by defining the Event Configuration File (
SM_Install_Directory
\config\snmptrap.conf), which defines what events are to be processed and the addresses of the NMSs to which the traps should be sent.
Event Configuration File Syntax
The snmptrap.conf is an editable ASCII file, with a simple one line per event syntax:
Event_Name Destination_Address
  • Event_Name
    The name of a MIB event object (or a comma-separated group of names of event objects).
    Examples:
    serverUP
    serverUp,serverDown
    serverUp,serverDown,serverInitFail
  • Destination_Address
    The address of an NMS (or a comma-separated group of the addresses of NMSs) to which generated traps should be sent. Each address should be of the form:
    HostID
    :
    port
    :
    community
    • HostID
      (mandatory) Either a hostname or IP address.
    • Port
      (optional) IP port number.
      Default
      : 162.
    • Community
      (optional) An SNMP community. Note that if community is specified, Port must also be specified.
      Default
      : “public”
      Example
      : 100.132.5.166
      Example
      : 100.132.5.166:162
      Example
      : victoria:162:public
Be careful to avoid event duplication. That is, you should avoid putting the same event in multiple entries. Also, comment lines can be added lines, prefixed with a “#” character.
