Configure Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Notification Recipients on a Switch
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a network management protocol which helps record, store, and share information about the devices in the network. This helps the administrator address network issues. SNMP notification messages, or traps, report system events such as the temperature of a remote device. Traps are sent from an SNMP-enabled network device to network management stations that help troubleshoot network issues easily. The system can generate traps in the Management Information Base (MIB) that it supports.
The following configurations are prerequisites of being able to configure SNMP notification recipients successfully:
SNMP Communities — This is required for SNMPv1 and SNMPv2. For instructions on configuring SNMP Communities, click here.
SNMP Users — This is required for SNMPv3. For instructions on configuring SNMP Users, click here.
This document aims to show you how to configure the destination (notification recipient) to which SNMP notifications (traps or informs) are sent, and the types of SNMP notifications that are sent to each destination on a switch.
1.4.7.05 — Sx300, Sx500
2.2.8.04 — Sx250, Sx350, SG350X, Sx550X
