Nagios + SNMP Traps


Hi everyone,

I was wondering if it is possible to have the Cisco switches in my network direct their SNMP traps to my Nagios server in order to have it act upon them, sending alerts and/or giving updates about the status of the switches based on their traps.

I’ve already got a Windows server with Kiwi Enterprise’s Syslog Daemon that intercepts all SNMP traps, but I thought it might be a whole lot more useful to have Nagios get them instead, so that I might be able to send alerts on events such as port security errors and such.



it IS possible, i once had it working in an old workplace… But please don’t ask me how i did it :slight_smile:
It was a mix of snmptt and some other small component if i remeber right, but it can be done.
