Does anyone know of a way to convert an SNMP Trap to a Solarwinds Alert?
For Example. I have cisco device that sends out traps to the Solarwinds console. This trap will be displayed in Solarwinds Trap summary window, but it looks completely static. If I can get this to become an Alert, then it will show up in the Alert screen and then the Operator can acknowledge them
You could use Trap Viewer, select your trap, right click:
Just send an email to your Operator. Other way is set action to "Change the status of an interface" - Alert should appear.
I am looking for a way to have" Active alerts" out of SNMP traps, Right now if I get an SNMP trap that I would consider to be critical it sends an email. It is not treated like an alert that requires acknowledgement. Let me know , how to convert SNMP traps to Active alerts in Solarwinds
