SNMP Trap Action

The SNMP Trap action will take values, descriptions, etc from a monitor and fire them off as an SNMP Trap. You can configure the action to send the Trap to any server/device on the network, using any port (port 162 is the default SNMP Trap port).

Traps will have the following fields:

alertSummaryA human readable summary of the alert condition.
computerNameSource Computer Name
monitorNameSource monitor name.
monitorStatusMonitor status.
monitorMessageA custom message from the monitor. This field is often empty.
alertTimestampA string representing the time of the error in YYYYMMDDHHMMSS format. This is in the local time of the reporting agent.
monitorTypeSource monitor type.
monitorStatusIDMonitor status ID.
computerID*Source computer ID within the Power Admin monitoring product.
monitorID*Source monitor ID.
monitorTypeIDSource monitor type ID.
monitorIDasOID*Source monitor ID as an OID
computerIDasOID*Source computer ID as an OID

* You can view the IDs in the Console by setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\PAServerMonitor, [DWORD] xShowIDs = 1

A MIB file exists in the C:\Program Files\PA Server Monitor\MIBs folder which describes the format of the Traps that will be sent.

You can download that same MIB file here.
