NAME

action_snmptrap, action_snmpv1trap - Scripts for sending SNMP traps (version 2c and 1 respectively) from monitor action. action_snmpv1trap is obsolete as the preferred SNMP version is 2c.


SYNOPSIS

 <action name="snmptrap">
   <param name="action-type" value="exec" />
   <param name="command" value="$TORRUS_BIN/action_snmptrap" />
   <param name="launch-when" value="set, clear" />
 </action>


DESCRIPTION

This program is designed for usage from a monitor action only. It takes the arguments from environment variables, as described in action-type exec in Torrus XML Configuration Guide. In addition, some values may be supplied via command-line arguments (see section OPTIONS below).

Site-specific variables must be specified in the file snmptrap-siteconfig.pl. Default values are installed by the first run of make install. Subsequent runs of make install do not override this file.


OPTIONS

--host=HOSTNAME

Sets the hostname of the destination host.

--community=COMMUNITY

Sets the community string to use when sending the trap.

--port=PORT

Sets the destination UDP port.

--enterprise=OID

Sets the enterprise field of the SNMPv1 trap to a given OID (see RFC 1157 for more details). This option is only available for action_snmpv1trap and will be ignored for action_snmptrap.

--severity=SEVERITY

Sets the optional severity SNMP variable to some integer value.
