Video: SNMP Trap Processor

If you send and receive SNMP traps in your network, you need to watch this video. With the SNMP Trap Processor module, T/Mon can convert incoming SNMP traps. They can be converted into on-screen alerts, pages, emails, and voice dial-outs. Plus, you can also bring in alarms from ASCII text sources (like telecom switches) and non-SNMP remotes. Watch this video to see application diagrams that explain these important functions.

"My name is Andrew and today I'm going to be walking you through the T/Mon SNMP processor. Before we get into the details of T/Mon though let's take a look at what a standard SNMP manager does. A standard SNMP manager accepts trap messages from SNMP RTUs and other SNMP equipment out in the field. It will then display those traps generally in a list view for review by a human operator. Now let's look at what T/Mon does. T/Mon accepts trap messages from the same SNMP RTUs and the same SNMP equipment but it also accepts incoming alarms from legacy equipment, equipment with ASCII text output such as a telecom switch and many other types of equipment. And it doesn't just display those alarms in a list view, you have a Windows interface, a geographic map interface that also supports floor plans and wrapped photographs, and a web 2.0 interface with analog gauges that requires no software installation - and you can see that each of those methods supports multiple concurrent users so you're not limited to just a single screen, you can have a whole team looking at arms if that's what you need. You're also not trapped at your screen, you can output alarms via email, you can have T/Mon call you and speak the alarm text to you over the phone, and you can even send text messages to a cell phone - that's a very popular and very convenient method. Finally you can pass your SNMP traps and other alarms to a higher level Master station.
