No configuration is required for the VoIP Notification Trap Adapter to process VoIP informational traps received from the SNMP Trap Adapter configured as a trap exploder, unless you choose to customize the trap definitions in one or more of the following trap_mgr.conf files in the VoIP Availability Manager BASEDIR/smarts/conf/voip/icoi directory:
If you wish to view a list of VoIP informational traps that the VoIP Notification Trap Adapter processes, consult the appropriate <vendor>_trap_mgr.conf file. Use the sm_edit utility to open the file. In addition to the pm_trap_mgr.conf file, also describes the default VoIP Performance Manager threshold documents.
Each vendor-specific trap to be transformed into a notification has an uncommented trap definition entry in the corresponding <vendor>_trap_mgr.conf file. The default_trap_mgr.conf file contains (1) BATCH_NOTIFY_INTERVAL configurations, which can be used to define the Batch Notify Interval to batch the updates to notifications, and (2) default rules, which can be used to define trap definitions that are not defined in the <vendor>_trap_mgr.conf files. Trap definitions are described in “Customizing trap definitions for the VoIP Notification Trap Adapter” on page 101.
A <vendor>_trap_mgr.conf file contains rules that the VoIP Notification Trap Adapter uses to map incoming traps into the data fields of an VMware Smart Assurance notification. The Adapter Platform, in turn, creates the VMware Smart Assurance notification object from the data fields and exports the notification to the Global Manager. Adapter Platform and trap definitions are described in the VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Adapter Platform User Guide.
The default port for the VoIP Notification Trap Adapter is 9002. If the --port=<port number> option is not specified in the VoIP Notification Trap Adapter’s startup command, the trap exploder listens for traps on the port specified by the PORT parameter in the VoIP Availability Manager BASEDIR/smarts/conf/voip/trapd.conf file (port 9000 by default), or port 162 if no PORT value is specified in the trapd.conf file. The VoIP Notification Trap Adapter startup options are described in “The VoIP Notification Trap Adapter service” on page 116.
Customizing trap definitions for the VoIP Notification Trap Adapter on page 101 describes how to customize trap definitions in a <vendor>_trap_mgr.conf file.
