How to manage trap by a poller


This feature is only avalaible since FAN 2.3. First you have already configure a distributed architecture (fan-poller, fan-central and fan-database).

With Centreon 2.3.X, we can translate mibs from the fan-central and generate the SNMPTT configuration for 1 or several fan-poller.

1) From Centreon, we will generate snmptt configuration (used by snmptrapd daemon). Centcore send files configuration by scp

2) Equipements are configured to send SNMP traps to FAN poller

3) centTrapHandlerForPoller-2.x plugin is invoked when a trap is understood by Snmptrapd

4) centTrapHandlerForPoller-2.x retrieve information Service and Host in FAN database

5) centTrapHandlerForPoller-2.x send external command to Nagios

  • Choose a Vendor Name

    Une erreur c’est glissée dans la partie creation du service :
    au lieu de “Check Passive Checks Enabled NO” il faut le mettre à YES.
