Support Trap from Cumulus devices

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fe225507030>


When I generate a linkDown event on Cumulus device, Cumulus send a snap-trap message to LIbreNMS, libreNMS received it ( checked with tcpdump). but the trap is not showed in event log .
This is just basic linkDown event.

What configuration is needed in LibreNMS in order to support trap from Cumulus ?


Hi jhfeng,

Did you setup traps?


Hi @Kevin_Krumm yes, I followed each step. I even downloaded MIBS from Cumulus device and add them into /opt/librenms/mibs/cumulus. my /etc/systemd/system/snmptrapd.service.d/mibs.conf is like this:


snmptrapd has been reload and restarted.

In fact, the traps from my Atrsta test device is reported correctly.

Is there debug option I can use to check why the trap message is getting lost.

My trap message from Cumulus looks like this in tcpdump:

I think you can have it show the generic traps in the event log by enabling a flag.


@Kevin_Krumm which flag ? generic trap is what I need at this time


this flag


@Kevin_Krumm I already use ‘all’ for this flag:

Default community

$config[‘snmp’][‘community’] = array(“public”);
$config[‘snmptraps’][‘eventlog’] = ‘all’;


$config[‘enable_syslog’] = 1;


For basic linkDown trap, I don’t need add new handler, right ? like documented here


I think you do.


@Kevin_Krumm so you think the existing /opt/librenms/LibreNMS/Snmptrap/Handlers/LinkDown.php is not good enough for generic linkDown trap ?


The old trap handler is bad. I have never missed with the snmp traps.
