Integrating eG Enterprise with Third-party SNMP Management Systems

Some environments may already be using network-monitoring systems such as HP OpenView, Tivoli NetView, etc., for monitoring their networks and systems. Administrators of such environments may desire that eG Enterprise’s alarms be reported to their existing alarm consoles. By configuring the eG manager to send eG alarms as SNMP traps to one/more SNMP management consoles in an environment, you can enable eG Enterprise to support the integrated display and tracking of alarms from a single monitoring console.

The broad steps towards this integration are as follows:

  1. Configure the SNMP managers/trap receivers to which the eG manager needs to send SNMP traps
  2. Define the SNMP trap settings
  3. Configure the third-party SNMP managers to receive SNMP traps from the eG manager.

Each of these steps have been discussed in detail below.
