I'm looking for some best practices when it comes to SNMP traps. Some of our devices are all over the place and don't seem to follow any standard.
I've seen in other places that people recommend to simply turn on "snmp-server enable traps" to send everything, but maybe that's too much? Do we need to log all traps, or are there more specific ones that you find to be incredibly useful?
Thanks for any advice!
Here's my list. I hope this helps.
snmp authentication linkdown linkup coldstart warmstart
module-auto-shutdown auto-shutdown sys-action
envmon fan shutdown supply temperature status
cef resource-failure inconsistency
Not big on cisco
but we like to see:
Just take everything for each type Cisco you have and start filter out the noise ..
If you have alot of syslog /traps
I would set up kiwisyslog as filter layer to traps and then forward to NPM
