Monitoring Zimbra Servers : SNMP

SNMP
SNMP Monitoring Tools
You will probably want to implement server monitoring software in order to monitor system logs, CPU and disk usage, and other runtime information.
Zimbra uses swatch to watch the syslog output to generate SNMP traps.
SNMP Configuration
Zimbra includes an installer package with SNMP monitoring. This package should be run on every server (Zimbra, OpenLDAP, and Postfix) that is part of the Zimbra configuration.
The only SNMP configuration is the destination host to which traps should be sent.
Errors Generating SNMP Traps
The ZCS error message generates SNMP traps when a service is stopped or is started. You can capture these messages using third-party SNMP monitoring software and direct selected messages to a pager or other alert system.
