SNP TRAP receiver Ouput




I have setup a test device (Cisco Router) to send traps to my PC running PRTG Monitor whenever there is a config change. When I make a config change I can see messages being received by PRTG but they don't seem to make any sense. See messgae below. Am I missing some sort of config here? Ideally I'd like the alerts/messages to be understandable but I'm really not to sure where I am going wrong with this.

please check with Cisco for any MIB Files describing the incoming trap messages. Then copy the MIB files to "<PRTG_install_directory>\MIB"-subfolder of your PRTG Program Files folder and restart your PRTG service. After you have done so, every trap sensor will try to gather get information of incoming traps and "translate" the content in the message.

Please run you MIB files through our MIB importer (https://www.de.paessler.com/tools/mibimporter) first to check for any bugs or syntactical errors in the MIB files.
