The Trap Editor tool can be used to modify SNMP Trap templates used by the SolarWinds Network Management Tools. By using the Trap Editor you can create SNMP Traps of almost any structure, including mimicking traps generated by network hardware. If you are using a network management solution, consider the ease with which you can now mimic critical alerts sent to that solution, ensuring it responds correctly when receiving such an alert.

  1. Click File > New Trap. The two OIDs required for an SNMP v2 Trap are provided whenever you create a new trap, they are:

    SysUptime (1.3.6.1.2.1.1.3.0) and TrapOID (1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.4.1.0).

  2. Click Trap > Add OID.
  3. Click browse (…) next to the blank OID column, select an OID, and then click OK.
  4. Select the data enter from the list in the Data Enter column. Click the cell to enable the list.
  5. If you need to edit the value of the data enter, click the empty value cell and enter the value. If you select an OID for the data enter, you can browse for the OID.
  • To duplicate a selected OID to a new row, click Edit > Duplicate.
  • To delete a selected OID, click Edit > Delete.
  • To copy a selected OID to the clipboard, click Edit > Copy.
  • To select all values, click Edit > Select All.
  • To add a new row, click Trap > Add OID.
  • To move a highlighted row up or down, click Trap > Shift Up or Trap > Shift Down.
