SNMP traps for GSLB configuration synchronization

Starting with Citrix ADC 12.1 build 49.xx, the Citrix ADC appliance generates SNMP traps for both local and remote sites when you synchronize the GSLB configuration. SNMP traps are generated for both manual synchronization and real-time synchronization.

When you synchronize the GSLB configuration for the first time, SNMP traps are generated. In the subsequent synchronization attempts, the SNMP traps are generated only if there is a change in the synchronization status from the previous synchronization status. Also, the SNMP traps are generated only for sites for which the synchronization status changed from the previous state.

For example, consider that the first GSLB configuration synchronization is successful. When you synchronize the configuration for the second time and if the synchronization is successful again, then SNMP traps are not generated because the status is not changed. However, in the third attempt, if the synchronization fails for one of the sites, then SNMP trap is generated for that site alone.

In a high availability and a cluster setup, the appliance generates the SNMP traps when you synchronize the GSLB configuration from the new node irrespective of the previous synchronization status. Also, if SNMP trap option was previously disabled and then enabled, SNMP traps are generated from that point onwards irrespective of previous synchronization status.

The following figure displays sample SNMP traps of GSLB configuration synchronization.
