SNMP Traps Recommendation ?

Dear All,

I need your suggestion regarding enabling of snmp traps on cisco devices. What is the recommended set of traps we should enable on devices ? I am asking this becasue we have few very low bandwidth links ( 128 kbps ) at some of our enterprise customers. We are monitoring customer's devices through centralized SNMP server so trap messages will be forwaded to low bandwidth links. Kindly guide me in this regard.

Thanks & Regards,



Re: SNMP Traps Recommendation ?

You do not want a Cisco device to send all of the SNMP traps that the device knows how to send. For instance, if you enable all traps in a Remote Access Server with 64 dial-in lines, you get a trap whenever a user dials in and whenever a user terminates the connection. This creates too many traps. Cisco IOS Software defines groups of traps that you can enable or disable.
