I am attempting to understand how the previous administrator has alerts built. In the alert actions the Send SNMP Trap action was choosen and under the trap template option ForwardSyslog has been selected. My question is when the alert is triggered is the message being forwarded on as a trap or a syslog message?
it is sending a trap.
the format of the trap is the 'ForwardSyslog' format trap (this is defined/modified using the SW Engineers Toolset)
