Enable SNMP SupportΒΆ

SNMP support must be enabled before you can begin using it to monitor a system.

About this task

In order to have a workable SNMP configuration you must use the command line interface on the active controller to complete the following steps.


  1. Define at least one SNMP community string.

    See StarlingX Fault Management: Adding an SNMP Community String Using the CLI for details.

  2. Configure at least one SNMP trap destination.

    This will allow alarms and logs to be reported as they happen.

    For more information, see Configuring SNMP Trap Destinations.
