Trap target with multiple Polling Engines

Jump to solution

I have multiple Polling Engines, where should I configure traps to be sent on my devices?  Should they go to the same polling engine that's polling the device? The main Orion server? All polling engines?

Send them to main poller.

Doesn't really matter unless you have a poller that's already overloaded. I often see people set up a load balancer address and round robin them around. The LB address is also nice if you decide a few years from now that you don't want to do traps in Orion anymore you can just change the LB settings instead of changing the config on every network device.

Thanks to both of you. All good info.  Essentially, it doesn't matter, and sending to any of the pollers will work. Don't need to send to a specific one or all of them. Thanks.
