Enable LEM to receive SNMP traps by turning on the SNMP Trap Logging Service

Updated: September 15, 2017

Turn on the SNMP Trap Logging Service to enable LEM to receive SNMP traps from devices and applications on your network. LEM can correlate events sent as SNMP traps from devices that have a device-specific connector.

LEM can also correlate performance alerts sent as SNMP traps from the following SolarWinds solutions:

  • Network Performance Monitor (NPM)
  • Server & Application Monitor (SAM)
  • Virtualization Manager (VMan)

The SNMP Trap Logging Service must be enabled to correlate events sent by these SolarWinds products.

  • LEM receives SNMP traps on port 162.

  • The "SNMP Trap Listening Service" was renamed to the "SNMP Trap Logging Service" in LEM version 6.3.0.
