  1. Click Send an SNMP Trap, and then then click OK.
  2. On the SNMP Trap tab, in the SNMP Trap Destinations field, enter the IP addresses of the servers to which you want to send your generated SNMP traps.

    Use commas to separate multiple destination IP addresses.

  3. Select the type of trap to send on alert trigger from the Trap Template list.

    Some trap templates may use an alert message. You may change any provided text, if you want, but it is important that you understand the use of variables beforehand.

  4. Enter the SNMP Community String for your network in the designated field.
  5. On the Time of Day tab enter the time period and select the days on which you want to activate your alert action.
  6. If you want to enable alert escalation, open the Alert Escalation tab, and then check any of the following options, as appropriate for your alert:

    • To disable the action when the alert has been acknowledged, check Do not execute this Action if the Alert has been Acknowledged.
    • To execute the action repeatedly, as long as the trigger condition exists, check Execute this Action repeatedly while the Alert is Triggered and then provide an appropriate action execution interval.
    • To delay alert action execution, check Delay the execution of this Action, and then provide an appropriate interval for the alert engine to wait after the alert condition is met before executing the alert action.
  7. If you are finished configuring your SNMP trap alert action, click OK.
