You can configure a Simple
Network Management Protocol (SNMP) agent on the NetScaler SDX appliance to
generate asynchronous events, which are called traps. The traps are
generated whenever there are abnormal conditions on the NetScaler SDX
appliance. The traps are then sent to a remote device called a
listener, which signals the abnormal condition on the NetScaler SDX appliance.
In addition to configuring an SNMP trap destination, downloading
MIB files, and configuring one or more SNMP managers, you can configure the
NetScaler appliance for SNMPv3 queries.
figure illustrates a network with a NetScaler
that has SNMP enabled and configured. In the figure, each SNMP
network management application uses SNMP to communicate with the SNMP agent on
the NetScaler SDX appliance.
The SNMP agent on
the SDX appliance generates traps that are compliant with SNMPv2 only. The
supported traps can be viewed in the SDX MIB file. You can download this file
