An SNMP Agent reports storage system errors to the SNMP Manager using the SNMP trap function.

When an error occurs, the SNMP Agent issues an SNMP trap to the SNMP Manager that includes the product number, nickname, reference code, and an identifier of the component.

The following table lists the types of events that trigger an SNMP Agent trap.

Events

Description

An SNMP Agent logs the most recent 10,000 traps, so you can see the trap history of a particular device.
