This section deals with enabling and customizing the Fiorano Platform agent. This can be done easily through the Profile Manager in eStudio. In the Profile manager, load the profile intended to be changed (FES/FPS) and navigate through Fiorano > esb > Snmp
Figure 6: Properties of SNMPHandler
This can be done by adding the line ENABLE_SNMP=yes. The default value is false.
Setting the SNMP community
This is done by setting the SNMP.COMMUNITY variable.
For example, SNMP.COMMUNITY=tifosi. The default value is public.
SNMP Agent Port
The port the SNMP agent will listen on. The default SNMP port number is 1161
SNMP manager URL
This URL specifies hostname and event port to which the SNMP traps are sent. By default all SNMP managers listen for traps on event port 162. The default URL is http://localhost:162.
For instance, if you need to send traps to a machine named network_manager on event port 162, you can set it as follows:
Enable sending traps on occurrence of alerts
This tells the FES to send an SNMP trap message to the configured manager in case of alerts being raised. The default is disabled. To enable it, set the "SnmpSendAlertTrap" value to yes
Enable sending traps on occurrence of events
This tells the FES to send an SNMP trap message to the configured manager whenever an event is received. The default is disabled. To enable it, set the "SnmpSendEventTrap" value to yes.
SNMP System Contact
This variable should be set to the name of the individual responsible for maintaining the managed network. The default is email@example.com. In order to set it, set the SNMPSystenContact value.
SNMP System Location
This is the physical location of the system. The default value is set to Unknown.
Example: SnmpSystemLocation: Fourth Floor, Room No. 123
This is used to set the Trap Levels for sending the traps to the SNMP Manager.
Quite : 0 (00000)FioranoPeerServer : 1 (00001)Gatewayserver : 2 (00010)Application : 4 (00100)Service : 8 (01000)SBW : 16 (10000)
Set the trap level to 0 for No traps and to 31 for all types of traps to be sent to the SNMP manager. For any combination of these traps, a value which sets the bits at those positions has to be provided.Example: For receiving both Application and Service level traps, the trap level will be 12 (01100)
