Proactive Monitoring SNMP Alerts

Proactive Monitoring SNMP Alerts

You can configure the PMPC solution to send alerts as SNMP traps in addition to email and RTAM alerts. PMPC solution supports SNMP v2.
Configure the following PMPC components to send alerts as SNMP traps:
  • SNMP Rule
  • SNMP Responder
  • SNMP Response


The SNMP rule generates SNMP traps for alerts. The rule activates whenever an event occurs on pc_notifications. The rule takes following variable values from the incoming activation and binds them to the trap Protocol Data Unit (PDU): body, priority, extended_properties, rs, rulename, artifact_type, domain, persona, product, rule_user, rule_group, and subject.
The PC_S7 SNMP Notification Response rule is available as part of RulePoint installation and is disabled by default. To reactivate the rule, edit the PC_S7 SNMP Notification Response rule from RulePoint and change the status of the rule to active.
To add bindings, check for the corresponding variable definition in the MIB. If the variable definition is present in the MIB then add the parameter name to OID mapping to the source code. Add the property to the response parameters.

SNMP Responder

The SNMP responder sends the trap PDU to the network manager that you configure to receive traps. The SNMPv2Responder is available as part of RulePoint installation and is disabled by default. To configure the SNMPv2Responder, edit the SNMPv2Responder from RulePoint and provide the network manger details.
The following table describes the responder properties that you need to configure:
Name for the responder.
NMS Host
IP address of the host on which NMS is available.
NMS Port
Port number on which NMS will receive traps. The default value is 162.
Community String
Community string for SNMPv2. The default values is public.
Timeout value for trap in milliseconds. The default values is 0.
Retry Count
Retry count for trap. The default value is 0.
Trap OID
OID of the trap.
Status of the responder. Change the status of the responder to active to reactive the responder.

SNMP Response

The SNMPv2Response is available as part of RulePoint installation and is disabled by default. The SNMPv2Response is the default response for SNMPv2Responder.
Use the response parameters map values to construct the response variables. Edit the SNMPv2Response in Rulepoint. Change the status of the response to active to reactivate the response.
