How to monitor IPS sensor heath by emails?

Hi All,

Is there any way to configure e-mail notifications about IPS sensor health monitoring results?

I have tried to install IPS supported MIBs to my SNMP management station (actually, it is HP SIM). Cisco supported MIBs have not been installed successfully to HP SIM yet.

Also, I have been searching such a monitoring tool over web site. And tools like LAN Monitoring Solution (or Device Fault Manager) requires licensing, so in my case it is not suitable.

Does somebody know SNMP management station (monitoring) tool which could monitor the sensor health without additional MIB installation?

There is one more practical question: Is there any way to send a test trap from IPS sensor to SNMP management station?

Thanks in advance,

Hello Maksim,

This functionality is not yet available, but will be included in IPS 7.1. This enhancement is being tracked via CSCsu08529.

Thank you,
