QUESTION: We are trying to get a 3rd party trap to go against the appropriate model in Spectrum. The events go against the Event Admin model with no problem but if the actual device is in Spectrum, the alarms still only go to the Event Admin model.
How to forward events from a 3rd party trap to existing device models in Spectrum
ANSWER: If one of the trap varbinds contain the hostname or ip address of the model in Spectrum, the South Bound Gateway (SBG) can be used to save the value to a specific event variable which the SBG will use to locate the associated model in the Spectrum database and if found, forward the event to be processed on that model. The specific event variables are as follows:
|7||Target Name||String||This field lets you specify a target model by model name. This field is case sensitive.|
|8||Target Address||Octet/Text String||This field lets you specify a target model by IP address. Use this field if you want to send the event to a model other than an EventModel.|
|16||Target Name||String||This field lets you specify a target model by model name. This field is case insensitive.|
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Please reference Southbound Gateway Toolkit for more information.
