The notifications that result from analysis by VMware Smart Assurance Managers typically contribute very little to the notification load on Global Manager. During analysis, VMware Smart Assurance Managers reduce the load by analyzing numerous traps and polling results to produce a notification for each root cause rather than the symptoms.

Do not forward traps to the Global Manager when they are already sent to a Domain Manager for analysis. Use the first match in trap forwarding configuration file, if possible. If you have not implemented batching at the VMware Smart Assurance SNMP Trap Adapter, do so.

Designing trap processing provides additional information.
