I am receiving an OID alert in from some Cisco Metro 3750 switches. Summary of OID is On the MIB tree, I get as far as which is the OSPF tree but it only goes as far as 15 which is ospfConformance. Any ideas on how I can translate this OID?

I'd have to see the raw trap PDU to be sure, but I'm guessing this is your application's way of saying this is an OSPF trap of general type 6 (enterprise-specific) and specific type 10 which would be ospfTxRetransmit:



ospfRouterId, -- The originator of the trap



ospfNbrRtrId, -- Destination






STATUS current


"An ospfTxRetransmit trap signifies than an

OSPF packet has been retransmitted on a non-

virtual interface. All packets that may be re-

transmitted are associated with an LSDB entry.

The LS type, LS ID, and Router ID are used to

identify the LSDB entry."

Ok, that is helpful. What we are receiving is the trap below. OspfTXRetransmits though -

should that be something I worry about as they are occuring very often(or rather the trap is logged often)?

SNMP config on the Metro Switch is as follows:

snmp-server enable traps ospf state-change

snmp-server enable traps ospf errors

snmp-server enable traps ospf retransmit

snmp-server enable traps ospf lsa

snmp-server enable traps ospf cisco-specific state-change

snmp-server enable traps ospf cisco-specific errors

snmp-server enable traps ospf cisco-specific retransmit

snmp-server enable traps ospf cisco-specific lsa
