How to test that Prognosis is getting SNMP traps from AEP?

There was some concern that Prognosis may not have alerted on AEP events, and whether it was just due to the network outage at that time or if there is a more permanent problem stopping us getting these alerts. How can we test it to be sure that we should receive an alert from Prognosis?

Re: How to test that Prognosis is getting SNMP traps from AEP?

By sending a test trap , which can be triggered manually at will from the AEP web interface.

But if we want to look at further detail of the work flow inside Prognosis to break it down by 'did Prognosis receive the trap' , 'trap severity Critical, Major or Minor' and 'was an alert triggered' here is a short video on how to do that.

 

 

Steps in this video:

1. Send test traps from AEP by manually triggering them from teh AEP web interface;

2. Run a display, or the attached display in the Prognosis client to view the AEPTRAP record, to see Prognosis received the trap.

3. Also display the PROBSUM and PROBSUMC records with appropriate where clauses to show the alerts triggered by the AEP.

4. Repeat viewing these Prognosis records after sending a trap if each different severity. The AEP web interface allows changing teh trap severity of the test trap so that all trap severities can be tested.
