What type of information is provided in an SNMP trap from StruxureWare Data Center Expert?

Product Line:

StruxureWare Central / Data Center Expert

Environment:

StruxureWare Central any version
StruxureWare Data Center Expert any version

Cause:

StruxureWare has the ability to send traps using the "Alarm Action" functionality as well as the "Network Management System Integration" feature. These traps can be sent based upon both manually configured thresholds under the "Threshold Alarm Configurations" tab as well as the normally APC device's pre-created alerts (Essential alerts) that are on the "Device Alarm Configurations tab.

Resolution: There are 2 ways to send traps from DCE. If you are using an alarm action, the traps are being sent as NetBotz traps and would be defined in the NetBotz MIB. This can be downloaded from any NetBotz appliance or from our APC software downloads page.

The traps are in this section of the MIB:
.iso.org.dod.internet.private.enterprises.netBotzAPC.netBotz.netBotzTraps
.1.3.6.1.4.1.5528.100.10

If you are using the "Network Management Systems Integration" feature, these traps are sent using the powernet mib. This is the regular APC mib. There will be version related info as well so the file name may be something like Powernet411.mib. All of the APC traps are listed under:
.iso.org.dod.internet.private.enterprises.apc.apc#
.1.3.6.1.4.1.318.0

All the traps and clearing traps for StruxureWare are based on the severity levels of the events such as warning or informational such as:
.iso.org.dod.internet.private.enterprises.apc.apc#.isxcInformationalAlarm
.1.3.6.1.4.1.318.0.740
.iso.org.dod.internet.private.enterprises.apc.apc#.isxcWarningAlarm
.1.3.6.1.4.1.318.0.742

The traps also provide additional information / arguments as described in the mib:

INFORMATIONAL: An ISXC Alarm exists.
- The first argument is the unique ISXC alarm ID.
- The second argument is the ISXC alarm label as a UTF8 string.
- The third argument is the ISXC alarm code.

- The thirteenth argument is the unique ISXC sensor ID.
- The fourteenth argument is the ISXC sensor label as a UTF8 string.
- The fifteenth argument is the sensor value as a UTF8 string.
