Create SNMP traps, managers, and users

Whenever an abnormal condition occurs on the Citrix Application Delivery Management (ADM), an SNMP trap is generated. The traps are then sent to a remote device called a trap destination server or the SNMP trap destination. Here, Citrix ADM is configured as the trap destination. You can query the SNMP agent for system-specific information from a remote device called an SNMP manager. The agent then searches the management information base (MIB) for requested data and sends the data to the SNMP manager.

To create an SNMP trap destination on Citrix ADM:

  1. Navigate to System > SNMP > Trap Destinations.
  2. Under SNMP Traps, click Add to create an SNMP trap, and then specify the following details:
    • Version. Select the SNMP version to use.
    • Destination Server. Name or IP address of the trap destination.
    • Port. Enter the trap destination’s port. The port is set to 162 by default.
    • Community. Specify the community string to use when sending a trap to the trap listener.
  3. Click Create.

    Note

    If you are creating an SNMP v3 trap destination, specify the SNMP user credentials to which you want to bind the trap. Click Insert and then add the user from the list of SNMP users available. To add an SNMP user, see To create an SNMP user.

To create an SNMP manager community:

  1. Navigate to System > SNMP > Managers.
  2. Under SNMP Manager, click Add to create an SNMP manager community, and then specify the following details:
    • SNMP Manager. Enter the name or IP address of the SNMP manager.
    • Community. Specify the community string to use when sending traps to the trap listener.
  3. Optionally, you can select the Enable Management Network check box to specify the Netmask which is the subnet mask of the SNMP manager network.
  4. Click Create.

To create an SNMP user:

  1. Navigate to System > SNMP > Users.
  2. Under SNMP User, click Add.
  3. Enter the user name and assign a security level to the user from the menu.
  4. Based on the security level you’ve assigned to the user, provide extra authentication protocols, such as authentication protocols, privacy passwords, and assign SNMP views.
