I have a need to accept SNMP traps from a Cisco ASA and ASR. All works fine, however, since I don't have the MIBs loaded, it doesn't seem to give me a descriptive trap and it's something difficult to decipher. I have tried loading MIBs into NetSights mymibs directory etc... including some of the mibs that looked to include trap definitions, but it never works. Can this actually be done?
You'll need to define the traps in the trapd.conf file per the following:
"How to Add Trap DefinitionsYou can add trap definitions that can trigger Alarms, which can be configured to take a specific action, such as running a program or automatically sending e-mail messages. Trap definitions are added manually, using a text editor.
CAUTION:You should always save a copy of the trap definition file prior to editing and testing your new definitions.
To define a new trap:
Using your favorite text editor, open the trapd.conf file in the \services directory. This is a text file that can be edited to modify the severity levels for particular traps or add trap definitions to support devices.
Add Event Definition using the format described in the trapd.conf file.
Save the file."
Per the trapd.conf file here is the event definition format to be used:
