LMS 3 and SNMP traps

Unanswered Question
Oct 31st, 2007

I saw that LMS3 DFM listens on default port 162 for SNMP traps. I assume that the predefined event sets in DFM are filters to SNMP traps. Is that right?

So, to take advantage of the DFM service, I have to add ciscoworks as a trap server on all the devices on my network?

Can I create custom SNMP trap filters that trigger email notifications with LMS 3?


I have this problem too.

DFM does listen for traps, but it only handles a few of them. The list of traps that DFM understands can be found at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/cscowork/ps2421/products_user_guide_chapter09186a0080862bc6.html . That said, DFM is a poll-based fault management system, so traps are not required for DFM to do the majority of its work. I encourage you to check out the DFM users guide for more details on how DFM works.

For the traps that DFM understands, you can create DFM notifications that will send you emails when certain events are created, but this is not very granular in terms of specific traps. You would be better off using a different trap management system for those kind of notifications.
