Re: SNMP Function testing on production environment
There is no way to send test traps that I have found. Currently I am trialing this query on my snmp traps.
SCALEIO-MIB:scaleioAlertSeverity is greater than 3.
I use the Solarwinds product but any trap software should be able to replicate that.
I have determined what generates a few of the severity levels. A Severity Level 2 is generated when putting a node in maintenance mode which shows as Low in the scaleio interface, a level 3 annoyingly is Trial license in use, a level 3 is for Storage Pool failure recovery capacity is below threshold and all show as Medium in the Scaleio interface.
With that testing and without rebooting or shutting down a node, which prior to 2.0 was a normal maintenance practice, I feel that above 3 is high and critical. Let me know if you have a failure that triggers those severity's. I would say my strategy is good except i had a node go down with a coredump this week and had no trap alerts. hmm
Let me know how it goes.
EDIT: I found this link as well in the forum. It is a very convoluted way of testing that a simple send test snmp trap would fix.
