How to monitor logs with NETSNMP on Spectrum OneClick

We have some machines running linux with NETSNMP installed and we'd like to monitor some logs with Spectrum.

 Is there any way to perform it with NETSNMP?

 How is the best practice to perform it?

 Any kind of customization or modification will be need on "snmpd.conf" file?

 Take a look at my Spectrum Oneclick image below which describes better

Answer:

For the NETSNMP agent, log file monitoring cannot be configured from within Spectrum. The snmpd.conf file on the agent system can be configured to monitor the logs at which time Spectrum will be able to view the associated mib when the log file monitor has been configured.

Additional Information:
Please reference the "Log File Monitoring" section at  http://www.net-snmp.org/docs/man/snmpd.conf.html on how to configure log file monitoring in the snmpd.conf file for the NETSNMP agent.
