Trap receiver alarm

Hi, I was successfully able to setup a SNMP trap receiver sensor and receiving traps there, however I´m not able to set the sensor to a failure state when receiving specifig traps.

This is the trap I receiving:

SNMPv2-MIB::snmpTrapOID.0 = IF-MIB::linkDown
RFC1213-MIB::ifIndex = 410048
RFC1213-MIB::ifAdminStatus = up (1)
RFC1213-MIB::ifOperStatus = up (1)

In the sensors settings, failure filter I have this: bindings["linkDown"]

But the sensor is not switching to failure state when the trap arrives. Not sure what I´m doing wrong here.

Thanks Martin

Hello Martin,

Thanks for contacting us.

In which of filter settings you add this configuration? Just want to make sure what settings you have in place in each of the sensor settings.

Best regards,

Miguel Aikens

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

Is there any difference if you use the following instead:

msgid[<string>]: any string specifying the message identifier part of the message message[<string>]: any string specifying the message part of the message (substring match)

Best regards,

Miguel Aikens

Both are not accepted. When I enter for example 'message[linkDown]' and click Save, go back in, it is not saved.

Hello,

Is it possible to generate a test notification using this: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/10193-how-do-i-test-an-snmp-trap-receiver-sensor With just the bindings["linkDown"] should do it.

Kind regards,
