SNMP Trap Listener
SNMP Trap Listener can be configured in such a way that, if a particular trap is received, actions can be configured and alarms will be generated accordingly. For e.g., you can configure a trap listener for system shutdown, you can assign the severity as critical and also associate an email action through SNMP Trap Listener. If the trap is received, then the severity becomes critical and an email alarm is generated.
The default port through which the traps are received is 1620. The default port can be changed by modifying <am.traplistener.port> property in <AMServer.properties> under AppManager Home/Conf directory. Restart the server for the changes to take effect.
