Useful SNMP traps

Post by scooke » Jun 09, 2010 7:47 am

Hi
I'm sure this must be possible, but I can't get it right.
We send all our SNMP traps (Backup Exec, Rsync, etc) to a database, and have a script which searches for certain terms and raises a helpdesk item based on the trap.
With Backup and Replication, I can't seem to get much useful info from the SNMP traps.
This is what we are getting

18:20:22 06/08/10 64074681 String DBN 2 Estcourt (Windows) String dbncs01 String control String InProgress String

18:50:36 06/08/10 64256068 String DBN 2 Estcourt (Windows) String dbndc01 String control String InProgress String

19:19:49 06/08/10 64431379 String DBN 2 Estcourt (Windows) String MobiusApps1 String control String InProgress String

20:16:39 06/08/10 64772381 String cecc5485-f9bb-4d71-9024-8924afe78a24 String DBN 2 Estcourt (Windows) String Success String

As you can see, there are no starting points, only "InProgress" and also no completion points for each machine, only for the whole job.

Is there a way to get more descriptive SNMP traps?

Thanks
Steve

Hello Steve,

This is a known issue with a wrong "InProgress" status for the SNMP trap, you should apply the latest hotfix which is available through our support team. After applying the fix you will be recieving the proper status (Successfull or Failed) for VMs. Also you may track completion time points when you recieve the trap with proper status. But could you tell us if there any additional info you would like to see in the trap, except for the already mentioned above?

Here is the description of the fix to apply:

Yes, basically this is the same issue that brakes those vCenter events mentioned in the fix.

Great, I've sent a request to tech support.

Basically, as long as the SNMP trap can say something like this, I'm happy

Job "Replicate servers" Started
Server 1 Started
Server 1 Completed Successfully
Server 2 Started
Server 2 Completed Successfully
Server 3 Started
Server 3 Completed Successfully
Job "Replicate servers" Completed successfully

Thanks
Steve
