Thread: Multiple Trap recieving issue...

  1. Cool Multiple Trap recieving issue...

    I have been editing the snmpd.conf file for receiving process and disk space related traps. I am finally receiving alerts whenever my specified disk space is hit or whenever a process dies.

    SCENARIO: I tested my NMS to see if it can receive multiple traps. I added two processes in my conf file for monitoring, restarted the snmpd daemon. I disabled both of them. In parallel i am using TCPDUMP on the cli that proves 2 traps are sent from the client to Zenoss stating the name of the 2 processes i disabled.

    PROBLEM: I receive 1 trap with a counter =2. When i view the details tab, it shows the details of the 1st process i disabled only! I am unable to understand why? to verify that my deployed NMS is actually receiving both the traps I executed the TCPDUMP command there too and it too shows that the machine is receiving the two traps THEN WHY ARE THEY NOT SHOWING ON THE INTERFACE? I am able to see 1 trap with a counter =2 but in the details i am able to view only 1 process name i disabled, what about the second one??

    Same is the case with disk space. When i was monitoring a single file (/boot) system things were ok. But when i entered two file systems (/boot and /my) for monitoring, 1 trap is received with a counter =2 BUT in the details section results of only the first file system is mentioned. How will i know from the interface which other file system is causing problem?

    What am i supposed to do now? Please guide...
