SNMP and PET Traps

SNMP traps are generated by SNMP agents that are enabled on the SNMP devices being managed by Oracle ILOM. Oracle ILOM receives the SNMP traps and converts them into SNMP event messages that appear in the event log.

Platform Event Trap (PET) events are generated by systems with Alert Standard Format (ASF) or an IPMI baseboard management controller. The PET events provide advance warning of possible system failures.

The MIBs are available on the Tools and Drivers CD and can be downloaded from http://support.oracle.com.

The following table shows the relationship between traps and sensors.

Sensor
Trap/Event/Severity
Description
NEM
sunHwTrapIOFault

event fault.chassis.device.fail

MAJOR

A component in the IO subsystem is suspected of causing a fault.
sunHwTrapIOFaultCleared

event fault.chassis.device.fail

INFORMATIONAL

An IO subsystem component fault has been cleared.
PS
sunHwTrapPowerSupplyFault

event fault.chassis.env.power.loss

MAJOR

A power supply component is suspected of causing a fault.
sunHwTrapPowerSupplyFaultCleared

event fault.chassis.env.power.loss

INFORMATIONAL

A power supply component fault has been cleared.
T_AMB

PSn/T_AMB

BLn/T_AMB

n = 0 through 3

sunHwTrapTempCritThreshold Exceeded

Upper critical threshold exceeded

MAJOR

A temperature sensor has reported that its value has gone above an upper critical threshold setting or below a lower critical threshold setting. The sunHwTrapThresholdType object indicates whether the threshold was an upper or lower.
sunHwTrapTempCritThreshold Deasserted

Upper critical threshold no longer exceeded

INFORMATIONAL

A temperature sensor has reported that its value has gone below an upper critical threshold setting or above a lower critical threshold setting. The sunHwTrapThresholdType object indicates whether the threshold was an upper or lower.
sunHwTrapTempFatalThreshold Exceeded

Upper fatal threshold exceeded

CRITICAL

A temperature sensor has reported that its value has gone above an upper fatal threshold setting or below a lower fatal threshold setting. The sunHwTrapThresholdType object indicates whether the threshold was an upper or lower.
sunHwTrapTempFatalThreshold Deasserted

Upper fatal threshold no longer exceeded

INFORMATIONAL

A temperature sensor has reported that its value has gone below an upper fatal threshold setting or above a lower fatal threshold setting. The sunHwTrapThresholdType object indicates whether the threshold was an upper or lower.
BLn/T_AMB

n = 0 through 3

sunHwTrapTempNonCritThreshold Exceeded

Upper noncritical threshold exceeded

MINOR

A temperature sensor has reported that its value has gone above an upper non-critical threshold setting or below a lower non-critical threshold setting. The sunHwTrapThresholdType object indicates whether the threshold was an upper or lower.
sunHwTrapTempOk

Upper noncritical threshold no longer exceeded

INFORMATIONAL

A temperature sensor has reported that its value is in the normal operating range.

BLn/HOT

sunHwTrapComponentError

Assert

MAJOR

A sensor has detected an error. This generic 'component' trap is generated when the SNMP agent does not recognize the component type.
sunHwTrapComponentOk

Deassert

INFORMATIONAL

A sensor has returned to its normal state. This generic 'component' trap is generated when the SNMP agent does not recognize the component type.
