To have Security Center events or alarms triggered by SNMP traps on a device, you must add SNMP traps to the device template.

What you should know

If you want to add all of the traps related to an SNMP device, import the MIB files provided by the SNMP device manufacturer.
NOTE: A device can have more than one MIB file provided with it. When this is the case, you must upload all of the provided files, as they can be dependent on each other.
If you only want to monitor specific SNMP traps, you can add them manually in Security Center.
NOTE: You must know the OID of the trap that you want to receive notifications for.

Procedure

To add SNMP traps using a MIB file:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select SNMP Manager from the entity browser and click the Device templates tab.
  3. In the Templates section, select the device template that you want to add a trap to.
