Setting Up SNMP Traps - AWS Elemental Delta

This is version 2.3 of the AWS Elemental Delta documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Delta Documentation.

Setting Up SNMP Traps

Nodes can be configured to generate SNMPv2 traps for all active alerts generated by the leader AWS Elemental Delta node.

SNMP traps are generated for the following event:

Notification Event Contents
ELEMENTAL-MIB::alert Any alert generated by the nodes within the cluster.
  • ELEMENTAL-MIB::alertSet: 1 if the alert is being set, 0 if the alert is being cleared.

  • ELEMENTAL-MIB::alertMessage: Message describing the alert that was set or cleared.

The SNMP MIB for AWS Elemental Delta is at http://<Delta IP>:8080/mib/ELEMENTAL_MIB.txt.

Perform this procedure on each node.
