I am desperately seeking some help as I am really struggling, but I accept
this isn't really the remit of this list - if its more appropriate off list
replies are fine by me.

I have net-snmp installed and apparently working e.g. snmpget returns
values from localhost.

I now want to test sending traps to a HP Openview Network Node Manager (I
am told this is what should be happening - I inherited a very very partial
OV installation and am trying to make it work with no budget and little
background. Aren't I lucky?!).

I have run snmp-config and nominated the NNM server as the receiver of
traps (snmpd.conf attached below - some of the triggers are deliberately
set to create traps at the moment for test ppurposes).

I can issue commands like =


bash-3.00# snmptrap -v 2c -c public localhost "" UCD-SNMP-MIB::ucdStart
bash-3.00# snmptrap -v 2c -c public localhost "" .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.251.1
bash-3.00# snmptrap -v 2c -c public localhost "" ucdStart sysContact.0 s
"Dave"

- but nothing ever appears in NNM. If I restart the snmpd daemon then an
alarm does appear then in NNM noting this - but that's is all I ever see
there.

Any pointers or other help greatefully received. I have no idea where to
go from here :-(

cheers

ian

# SECTION: Monitor Various Aspects of the Running Host
#
# The following check up on various aspects of a host.
# proc: Check for processes that should be running.
# proc NAME [MAX=3D0] [MIN=3D0]
#
# NAME: the name of the process to check for. It must match
# exactly (ie, http will not find httpd processes).
# MAX: the maximum number allowed to be running. Defaults to 0.
# MIN: the minimum number to be running. Defaults to 0.
#
# The results are reported in the prTable section of the UCD-SNMP-MIB tree
# Special Case: When the min and max numbers are both 0, it assumes
# you want a max of infinity and a min of 1.
proc sendmail 2 2
# disk: Check for disk space usage of a partition.
# The agent can check the amount of available disk space, and make
# sure it is above a set limit.
#
# disk PATH [MIN=3D100000]
#
# PATH: mount path to the disk in question.
# MIN: Disks with space below this value will have the Mib's errorFlag
set.
# Can be a raw byte value or a percentage followed by the %
# symbol. Default value =3D 100000.
#
# The results are reported in the dskTable section of the UCD-SNMP-MIB
tree
disk / 33977010
# load: Check for unreasonable load average values.
# Watch the load average levels on the machine.
#
# load [1MAX=3D12.0] [5MAX=3D12.0] [15MAX=3D12.0]
#
# 1MAX: If the 1 minute load average is above this limit at query
# time, the errorFlag will be set.
# 5MAX: Similar, but for 5 min average.
# 15MAX: Similar, but for 15 min average.
