Handling SNMP traps with Nagios
WARNING: Work in progress
1. run snmptrapd which listens on UDP port 162 on all IPv4 interfaces.
vi /etc/default/snmpd TRAPDRUN=yes :wq vi /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.conf (incomplete - see http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/1_0/int-snmptrap.html)
/etc/init.d/snmpd restart ps ax | grep snmp
2. in other systems snmpd.conf put
trapsink 192.168.1.103 community proc puppetd
where IP is the address of the snmpdtrapd system and community is the comm string and puppetd is the process we want to monitor.
