I am looking for info on the steps needed to configure Oracle 11.2g to send SNMP traps to a 3rd party network monitoring system.

We will be running OEM on each DB server.

 If someone can point me to an Oracle document that describes how to do this, that would be a huge help.
I can't seem to find much on Oracle's website.

>>but should work for 11.2

I originally thought so as well until I found:
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11857_01/install.111/e16847/appdx_dep_features.htm

The Enterprise Manager SNMP subagent feature is planned for deprecation in Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g Grid Control Release 1 (11.1.0.1.0).

I've scoured the Internet and Metalink and cannot find ANYTHING either.

The link I posted above mentions Oracle will replace it with something but I've not been able to find it.

I suggest you contact Oracle Support.  They should know what the replacement is.

I guess they could try it.  Who knows, it might work.  If it does, I'll wish I had posted the link...

I am currently running OEM DB console 11.2.0.1.0
I will not be using Grid Control as the trap receiver.
I don't see where they plan on depricating the SNMP trap feature.
Isn't the OEM DB console different than grid control?

Yes they are different. DB console manages a single instance while grid control controls multiple instances.

Yes and no.  They report a lot of the same things.  Where they are different is 'how' they get that info.  I also think Grid Control has some 'extra' stuff.

It's possible SNMP is part of that 'extra' stuff.

I've never messed with SNMP in Oracle so I can only go by what I read.  Oracle Support will be the definitive authority for this.

Splitting the points between you both. Not much help but pointed in the right direction.
Thanks again.
