trap events to netmon

I am sending bgp traps (.1.3.6.1.2.1.15.3.1.2 bgpPeerState) to netmon from a cisco 7513 router. Netmon receives them, but event log message returns:

- NO TRAPD.CONF FMT FOR .1.3.6.1.2.1
.15.0.1 ARGS(2): [1] mgmt.mib-2.bgp.bgpPeerTable.bgpPeerEntry.bgpPeerLastError.209.144.128.46 (Octet
String): 0x00 00 [2] mgmt.mib-2.bgp.bgpPeerTable.bgpPeerEntry.bgpPeerState.209.144.128.46 (Integer)
: 6;3 .1.3.6.1.2.1.15.0.1 0

xnmtrap event configuration/modify shows the event log message:
$E $# args: $*

How do I config the trapd.conf so that I display the bgp state values (6:3, in above msg) and a message such as "bgpPeerState Idle, or bgpPeerState Connected."

Thanks for your help.

Re: trap events to netmon

Kenn,

You can either configure the Trap Manually, (highlight it then configure one for the unformatted Trap definition).

Or you can select Options->Load/Unload MIBs
and then Load Standard/rfc-1269-BGP, rfc-1657-BGP4-MIB, or you can connect to the Cisco Website and pull in the SNMP v2 MIBs and then load the BGP4-MIB.my.

Hope that helps.

Re: trap events to netmon

The messages you get where it says "no format in ....", is
telling you that NNM was unable to find a matching event in the trapd.conf file.
So you need to go an add an event for it and set it to not log, log to alarm, etc.

Re: trap events to netmon

Berlene is correct, if you load the MIBs that I indicated in my last message, your problems will disappear.

Have a Great Day. Please let me know if I can assist further.
