How to send SNMP traps
Events recorded in the Apex log can be sent as SNMP traps. Doing so allows you to monitor Apex activity and trigger automated processes to start when certain events occur.
SNMP traps are widely used for sending notifications from one application to another, generally for alerting or notification purposes.
To send log events and alarm notifications, first configure your server and recipient settings. After configuring these settings, you can enable and disable the sending of automated messages.
Configure your server settings:
1. In the web interface, click System > Settings.
2. In the Feature Settings, click Notification.
3. Select Configure an SNMP Trap.
4. Configure the options.
For details, use the information in SNMP trap settings.
5. Click the accept icon .
6. In the Feature Settings pane, click Log.
7. Select Export logged events to an SNMP Trap.
8. Configure the options.
9. Click the accept icon .
Apex will send logged events to your SNMP Trap server.
