Create a SNMP trap action

Before you begin

Create diagnostic system modules

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) actions are used to post SNMP traps in response to the triggering of an associated policy.

To create a new SNMP trap action:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, select Diagnostics > Diagnostic Modules.
  3. In the Diagnostic System Modules table, select the name of the diagnostic system module you want to assign the action to.
  4. Select Configuration > Policies and Actions > Actions.
  5. Click New.
  6. Select SNMP Trap from the Type list and click Next.
  7. Enter a name for the action in the Action Name field.
  8. Enter the timeout period in the Timeout (in seconds) field. The timeout period is the length of time, in seconds, that an action has to complete execution. By default, the timeout period is 0, which disables the action timeout.
  9. To enable or disable this action, select or deselect the Enable Action box.
  10. Click OK.
  11. In the Change Center, click Activate Changes.
