I am wanting the ability to get Spanning-tree Topology change notifications to a snmp trap server. I am currently evaluation SolarWinds Orion NPM. I have traps setup and working on a number of devices including Cisco CS3560, CS6509, and CS6513. I am receiving snmp traps notifications fine. The traps I thought I could setup to send a notification when a topology change had been made was through this command:
snmp-server enable traps bridge topologyChange
However, I only receive a topology change notification when a direct uplink has went down, and not when a switch downstream creates an stp change that cause a topology change on the upstream device. If i do a
sh spanning-tree detail on my CS6513 (upstream switch) I see there has been a topology change. Maybe I'm not using the correct trap or something. A case use on what I'm trying to achieve is this:
Two Devices: CS3560 connected to CS6513. STP enabled on both. The CS3560 reboots, or has a topology change happen, that in turn causes a topology change on the CS6513. I want a notification when the change occurs on the CS6513.
Thanks for your help.
