we're running two FWSMs in two seperate 6500s. When a failover test occurs (triggered by "failover active" on the cli on the primary FWSM), the 6500s don't notice that circumstance, although all snmp traps are activated there. This seems to be as "works as designed".
So the solution seems to be to enable snmp traps on the FWSM. But there are just a few snmp traps and none of them belong to the category "failover". So it seems, that the FWSM cannot send a snmp trap, when a failover occurs.
So my question: Is there any way to monitor a failover between two FWSMs with snmp traps?
