Forward SNMP Alarm Data In ASCII Format For After-Hours Monitoring

Forward SNMP Alarm Data in ASCII Format for After-Hours Monitoring

Record Alarm Data When Your NOC Staff is Off Duty

Problems in your network can happen at any time, even late at night and on holidays and weekends. Situations that need immediate attention can be sent to maintenance technicians in the form of automatic pager notifications. But you also need a record of even minor problems, which can easily grow to serious threats to network integrity if left unchecked.

ASCII forwarding of SNMP alarm data can help you keep track of events when the NOC staff is away. In this application, a protocol mediation device converts SNMP traps to ASCII text. The data is then forwarded to an ASCII-based monitoring or recording device.
