Cisco Prime SNMP Traps Best Pratice

 

The Cisco Prime documentation recommends configuring switches to send SNMP traps. However it does not give any more details.

I was wondering what sorts of SNMP traps people in the community are using with Cisco Prime 2.1. I'm looking for some sort of best practice or for an idea of what traps would be the most useful to configure on the switches, to send to Prime.

Thanks, that's a very helpful

Thanks, that's a very helpful link.

I was also wondering which traps make sense from a practical perspective. Perhaps there are certain traps that will trigger useful events in Prime? 

A hypothetical example would be that a configuration event trap could trigger Prime to do a config-sync with the device.

Are there certain traps that are particularly useful when combined with Prime?

Hi ,

Snmp traps need to be configured only on device end , there is no config need to be done on PI.

you can enable all the traps that you want.  for e.g

snmp-server enable traps syslog
snmp-server enable traps ipsec start stop
snmp-server enable traps memory-threshold
snmp-server enable traps interface-threshold
snmp-server enable traps connection-limit-reached
snmp-server enable traps cpu threshold rising

 

etc......

and you can monitor then in PI (Administration > System Settings > Severity Configuration, Link down)
