Solaris Volume Manager Administration Guide

Limitations of the Solaris Volume Manager SNMP Agent

The Solaris Volume Manager SNMP agent does not issue traps for all of the Solaris Volume Manager problems that system administrators need to be aware oft. Specifically, the agent issues traps only in the following instances:

Many problems, such as an unavailable disk with RAID-0 volumes or soft partitions on it, do not result in SNMP traps, even when reads and writes to the device are attempted. SCSI or IDE errors are generally reported in these cases. However, other SNMP agents must issue traps for those errors to be reported to a monitoring console.
