SNMP Traps handling



Hello everyone,

I'm maybe not the first asking the question but how can I monitor snmp traps from devices where I'm not able to install remote probes? Like sensorprobes (akcp), hp lto autoloader, fringerprint terminals... stuff like that.


Best regards, jan

thank you very much for your KB-Post. Just configure those devices to send their SNMP Traps to your PRTG Host, where you can then monitor them with a SNMP Trap Receiver sensor.

best regards.
