    How to trigger alert based on trap type/trap details

    z080236

      Scenario: Server 1 is sending traps to Server2 which has  Solarwinds Orion 10.6 installed

      Server 2 is able to see the traps in Orion website->Traps

       

      However, I want to set some trigger alert based on the trap details

      eg. if fulfil trap detail1:trigger alert

       

      At the Basic/Advanced alert manager, I am unable to find trap detail, under the "Property to monitor" field.

          Alerts for traps are sent out from Trap Viewer

          1. Login (RDP) into your primary poller (Server2) , All Programs -> Solarwinds Orion -> Syslog and SNMP Traps -> Trap Viewer

          2. Trap Viewer -> View -> Alerts/ Filter Rules (Navigate to View tab and click on Alerts/Filter Rules)

          3. Set an alert the way you want by adding a new rule here (Alerts/Filter Rules is similar to your alert manager and is self explanatory )

           

          Hope it helps

            search for posts from my on how to do this -- you have to do it using a custom SQL alert.

             

            WHERE  nodeid IN (SELECT nodeid
                              FROM   traps
                              WHERE  traps.traptype like 'CERENT-454-MIB:%'
                                     AND Datediff(day, traps.datetime, Sysdatetime()) < 1
                                     AND traps.Acknowledged=0
                             )
