I’m currently running Ubuntu 8.10 with a recent and rather straightforward Nagios 3.0 installation. I’ve set up all of my network hosts, services (37 hosts, 105 services) and set up notifications like I want. Now I’m facing my next challenge: SNMP trap handling. I’ve read a lot of information scattered across the web that the steps you’ll need to take to have Nagios handle SNMP traps. I understand I may (or definitely will) need the following:
The problem is, the guides I’ve found have all been for different distributions, earlier versions of Nagios, etc. and I just want to make sure I’m going from the right source material before I screw up either my Nagios or Linux installations. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks in advance.
Ultimately once I get Nagios set up to handle SNMP traps, I’ll be monitoring AKCP devices. But that’s getting ahead of myself.
