Enabling SNMP on the KEMP LoadMaster

SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) can be used to monitor the LoadMaster unit, for example CPU load and statistics. To enable SNMP, follow the steps below in the LoadMaster Web User Interface (WUI):

  1. In the main menu, select System Configuration > Logging Options > SNMP Options.

  2. Select Enable SNMP.

  3. Enter the IP address or hostname of the SNMP server in the SNMP Clients text box.

  4. Next, add the Community String. This can be set to public if open to all, or to a private string name.

  5. In the Contact text box, enter the username of the contact person who has the management information, for example KEMP Support.

  6. Enter the device Location, for example Ireland.

  7. Choose whether to Enable SNMP Traps or not. When enabled, this will display two additional text boxes: SNMP Trap Sink1 and SNMP Trap Sink2. SNMP Trap Sink1 is related to SNMP v1 and Sink2 is related to SNMPv2. These options allow the user to specify a list of hosts to which a SNMPv1 or v2 trap will be sent when a trap is created.
