Enhancement Number:  
Cause:  
Resolution:

Alert SNMP traps are described in the Flowmon Monitoring Center MIB file

The following OIDs are used:

  • 1.3.6.1.4.1.39499.1.0.1 - alert (notification-type)

OID parts explained:

  • 1.3.6.1.4.1 - enterprise OID (http://oid-info.com/get/1.3.6.1.4.1)
  • 39499 - flowmon enterprise identifier
  • 1 - flowmon
  • 0 - fmc

Traps must have zero indexes in order to be able to translate "alert" into TRAP_TYPE or SNMPv1 Trap-PDU.

  • 1.3.6.1.4.1.39499.1.2.1 - alertName
  • 1.3.6.1.4.1.39499.1.2.2 - alertTriggerCondition
  • 1.3.6.1.4.1.39499.1.2.3 - alertTriggerValueLow
  • 1.3.6.1.4.1.39499.1.2.5 - alertTriggerValueHigh
  • 1.3.6.1.4.1.39499.1.2.6 - alertTimeStamp
  • 1.3.6.1.4.1.39499.1.2.4 - alertDetails
  • 1.3.6.1.4.1.39499.1.2.7 - alertDisplayName

OID parts explained:

  • 1.3.6.1.4.1 - enterprise OID (http://oid-info.com/get/1.3.6.1.4.1)
  • 39499 - flowmon enterprise identifier
  • 1 - flowmon
  • 2 - fmc

It is possible to import MIB to Wireshark to analyze the trap if necessary:

  • Rename the MIB file to flowmonFmcMIB.txt (object name)
  • Wireshark - Preferences - Name Resolution - SMI paths - add a path to the folder where MIB is located
  • Wireshark - Preferences - Name Resolution - SMI modules - add "flowmonFmcMIB"
  • Wireshark - Preferences - Name Resolution - Enable OID resolution
  • Restart Wireshark
