    Default Fault/error management with SNMP

    Hello all,

    Just looking for a little guidance on having SNMP traps trigger my Zimbra services to restart, if necessary.

    I have a couple Zimbra servers, 3.1.3 on CentOS, and would like to do service monitoring/restart/etc using the SNMP traps that generated by the swatch process. I understand I'll have to configure the SNMP traps that are generated in the /opt/zimbra/snmp/conf/snmp.conf file. I guess the biggest thing is I'm not sure what software I should use to capture the SNMP traps and cause the Zimbra processes to restart, etc. I started playing around with Monit, which seems really great, but I already have Swatch trolling through logs generating traps, so why not use that.

    Any advice/guidance on this greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Andre

    Don't think swatch can do the restart for you... You'd need something outside of that to actually catch the SNMP trap and restart. In 3.2 there is a restart manager for tomcat so that is covered.

    Thanks Kevin. You have any idea what to use for that?? I've never really used anything that involves SNMP so I dunno...

    and a FreshMeat search yields a bazillion results...

    I think nagios can do something like that.

    Networkmonitoring with Cacti via SNMP makes fun.
    Have a look at http://www.cacti.net/

    Did you actually managed to run monit with the webpage ?
    Mine is running fine except I can't get the webpage on Zimbra offers Open Source email server software and shared calendar for Linux and the Mac.
