We have a situation a lot many times that NNMi is not recieving traps from the network and storage devices and everytime we are notififed by the Storage team that they are not receiving any OVO alerts and we find that something is wrongfrom the NNMi side. Does anyone have had this problem in their environments . Any help is highly appreciated.
So earlier you said that you were "finding something wrong from NNMi side"
But now you're saying that you want to monitor if NNMi is receiving the traps from the devices.
Which one is it? Are you seeing NNMi problems, or is it that the traps are never received by NNMi? (e.g. due to monitored device trap misconfiguration, network misconfiguration, etc).
The problem is that the traps are only sent when an event occurs, so how do you know that you're not receiving traps because there's no events, vs not receiving traps because something is broken?
How often do these traps get sent? If it is reasonably frequently, then maybe you should be monitoring it at the Operations Manager side. Figure out how to query the database to find out when the last event was received for that specific system. Run that query as a scheduled action, and look at the time difference. When it goes above some threshold, raise an alert that tells the operators to investigate the system. Also see if your monitored system can either schedule sending a trap, or if there's some way you can script telling it to send a trap on a daily basis. Then you just need to check Operations Manager to ensure that traps are seen daily.
You should also be doing more active polling of systems, not just relying on traps.
This looks like a solution to our problem, I will do some more tweaking. We do not see traps when something is broken from the NNMi server side, Last time we had this when the OPC_PRIM_MGR on the ovo agent was not configured, which lead to the loss of the traps ultimately the OVO events.
But i appreciate your thoghts and thanks for the help. Kudos!!!!!!!!
