This article provides steps to configure SNMP for Websense system alerts.

System and usage alerts for Websense Web Security and Web Filter are not stored in the Websense SQL Server database. To capture these alerts with your LEM Manager, your Websense product must be set to send them to your LEM Manager's SNMP service.
