Unknown Device Event Type from a router

Hi,

I just included my first router within the reporting devices and decided to take a look at the raw events coming in to the MARS. To my surprise I see just two types of events :

- Generic IOS syslog

- Unknown Device Event Type

This second one looks like SNMP because every message begins with "SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises." and seems to contain OIDs and data. Is this normal or am I having some kind of problem? The syslog messages seem to be interpreted correctly; in fact they generated a few incidents when there were some problems on one of the interfaces. I'm worried that the SNMP messages (traps?) are not being understood.

Thanks for your help,

Joe

Re: Unknown Device Event Type from a router

The MARS guide does not mention sending SNMP traps from routers to the box, there is no need for it. You have to send syslog or netflow or both.

Re: Unknown Device Event Type from a router

Yes, I realize that. Unfortunately I don't have access to the router and I'll have to ask what has been configured. I was wondering why MARS sees this data as raw events, if indeed they are SNMP traps. Does MARS listen on port 162 UDP?

Thanks,

Joe
