The set snmptrap command sends SNMP traps to the trap receiver (SNMP trap server IP address) you specify. You can use the optional v3 command to generate SNMPv3 traps. For information about SNMP, see Monitoring with SNMP.

Use the show snmp command to get information about SNMP objects.

Note

Use the set snmptrap command only for test purposes because it uses 0 as the value of the msgAuthoritativeEngineBoots and msgAuthoritativeEngineTime variables and this may cause the trap receiver to drop traps.

Syntax

set snmptrap variable <name of an SNMP variable, in dotted or symbolic format> address <address of the trap receiver> [v3] [snmpuser][all] [ibNodeName <value> ] [ibTrapSeverity <value>] [ibOjectName <value>] [ibProbableCause <value>] [ibSubSystemName <value>]  [ibCurThresholdValue <value>] [ibThresholdHigh <value>] [ibThresholLow <value>] [ibPreviousState <value>] [ibCurrentState <value>] [ibTrapDesc <value>]


ArgumentDescription
<name of an SNMP variable>Name or OID (object ID) of the SNMP object. For example, you can enter sysName.0 or .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.11.53.0.
<address of the trap receiver>IPv4 or IPv6 address of the management system that receives SNMP traps.
<snmpuser>User name of the SNMPv3 user account. This is optional. If you do not provide a user name, the appliance uses the first SNMPv3 user on the list.
ibNodeName <value>IP address of the appliance to which the trap must be sent.
ibTrapSeverity <value> Severity of the trap. For more information, see Trap Severity (OID 3.1.1.1.2.2.0)
ibObjectName <value> Name of the object for which the trap is generated.
ibProbableCause <value>Value that provides information about events such as hardware, software for process failures that trigger SNMP traps.
ibSubSystemName <value> Value that provides information about the subsystems that trigger the traps.
ibCurThresholdValue <value> Current value of the threshold counter.
ibThresholdHigh <value> For CPU usage, this is the trigger value of the SNMP trap. For DHCP address usage, this is the value of the high watermark.
ibThresholdLow <value> For CPU usage, this is the reset value of the SNMP trap. For DHCP address usage, this is the value for the low watermark.
ibPreviousState <value> Previous state of the appliance. 
ibCurrentState <value> Current state of the appliance. 
ibTrapDesc <value> Description of the trap. 

For more information about the argument descriptions, see Types of Traps (OID 3.1.1.1.1).

Examples

Sending SNMP Traps to a Specific Trap Receiver

Enter the following on the appliance:

Infoblox > set snmptrap variable sysName.0 address 10.0.0.11

The appliance sends the following acknowledgement to the trap receiver:

2011-02-23 23:02:51 10.0.0.11 [UDP: [10.0.0.11]:35597->[10.0.0.11]]:
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (42) 0:00:00.42
SNMPv2-MIB::snmpTrapOID.0 = OID: SNMPv2-MIB::sysName.0
2011-02-23 23:02:53 10.0.0.11 [UDP: [10.0.0.11]:52367->[10.0.0.11]]:
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (42) 0:00:00.42
SNMPv2-MIB::snmpTrapOID.0 = OID: SNMPv2-MIB::sysName.0

Sending SNMP Traps Using SNMPv3

Enter the following on the appliance:

Infoblox > set snmptrap variable sysName.0 localhost v3 SNMPv3User1

The appliance sends the following acknowledgement to the trap receiver:

2011-02-07 01:08:19 localhost [UDP: [127.0.0.1]:41884->[127.0.0.1]]:
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (42) 0:00:00.42
SNMPv2-MIB::snmpTrapOID.0 = OID: DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysName.0

Enter the following on the appliance:

Infoblox > set snmptrap variable sysName.0 localhost v3 SNMPv3User1

The appliance sends the following to the trap receiver in the event of a process failure:

SNMPv2-MIB::snmpTrapOID.0 = OID: SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7779.3.1.1.1.1.2.0
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7779.3.1.1.1.2.1.0 = STRING: "192.168.1.2"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7779.3.1.1.1.2.2.0 = INTEGER: 5
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7779.3.1.1.1.2.5.0 = STRING: "named"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7779.3.1.1.1.2.4.0 = INTEGER: 20
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7779.3.1.1.1.2.11.0 = STRING: "A named daemon monitoring
failure has occurred."

Sending SNMP Traps When the Primary Disk is Full

Enter the following on an appliance of type disk:

Infoblox > set snmptrap variable 1.3.6.1.4.1.7779.3.1.1.1.1.3 address 10.35.5.243 ibNodeName "infoblox.localdomain" ibObjectName Disk ibTrapSeverity 3 ibProbableCause 1001 ibTrapDesc '"Primary drive is full."'

The appliance sends the following to the trap receiver in the event of the primary disk being full:

2020-06-30 12:36:25 member0.g.infoblox.com [UDP: [10.35.5.243]:44807->[10.35.5.243]:162]:

DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (10123392) 1 day, 4:07:13.92   SNMPv2-MIB::snmpTrapOID.0 = OID: IB-TRAP-MIB::ibThresholdCrossingEvent  IB-TRAP-MIB::ibNodeName.0 = STRING: "infoblox.localdomain"   IB-TRAP-MIB::ibTrapSeverity.0 = INTEGER: minor(3)       IB-TRAP-MIB::ibObjectName.0 = STRING: Disk  IB-TRAP-MIB::ibCurThresholdValue.0 = INTEGER: 100 IB-TRAP-MIB::ibThresholdHigh.0 = INTEGER: 90    IB-TRAP-MIB::ibThresholdLow.0 = INTEGER: 0      IB-TRAP-MIB::ibTrapDesc.0 = STRING: Primary drive is full.
