Selecting/modifying SNMP traps on switches


Hi,

I'm curious as to what defines the SNMP trap info sent by switches? I would like to get updates on 802.1x authentication and state of switches (all manufacturers if possible). Is the data sent via traps determined by the manufacturer or is it possible to modify/select it from the switch MIB?

Any insights will be helpful.

Thanks

The switches configuration and coding defines it. As you've not mentioned a thing about what the switch is we can't help you.

Specifically I'd be using hp procurve 2600 switch and possibly cisco catalyst 4500.

What I'm asking is, in general, is it possible to specify the OIDs that the switch will send to the SNMP NMS? I want to target the 802.1x parameters such as VLAN, authentication status, client mac address.

Thanks.

Can't speak for procurve off hand, but for a 4500 series it'd be a case of setting "snmp-server enable traps [trap types...]"
