Having commissioned and tested failover between a pair of appliances I was rather surprised to discover that they do not share a VIP address. From an operational support perspective this implies that I need to configure each host to accept snmp queries from two servers and double the number of snmp trap receivers to cater for instances where the Primary appliance is out of service. This implies that the network is having to cope with twice the volume of snmp udp 162 traps and alerts. I dare not even think about syslogging!
Hopefully, I've missed something, but how do fellow community members handle this eventuality?
Thanks in anticipation
