    SNMP trap receivers and polling engines

    jpl3

      I'm using two polling engines, my primary NPM server and and additional poller. Not always knowing which poller will be polling a device, should I configure them to send traps to both, or just the primary?

       

      Related questions I have...

      Do traps received from a device (eg. link up/down) affect the polling of the device (polling rate, rediscovery, ..)?

      If so, and assuming the device is being polled by the 'additional poller', will the trap have the same affect if it's received by the primary poller only?

      Does configuring a device to send traps to both pollers cause any problems, ie duplication of traps in database?

       

      thanks..
