Our Solarwinds admin guy said he can't set up rules unless a sample event is sent to solarwinds.
We have about 70 events from an app : so far the apps team only could get someone to login/logoff
to simulate once such event but for the other 69 events, need to do reboot etc which they can't
unless there's downtime.
Attached is the full list of snmp events our apps team gave to me.
I'm wondering :
a) what exactly our solarwinds admin is expecting or hinders him from creating rules? He's
elusive & extremely busy (ie no time to show me)
b) are there free tools like snmpwalk etc which I could trigger sample events?
I'm sure Cisco devices & Windows events which are currently sent to the solarwinds will
go through the same process to be monitored but really doubt the network chaps will
send the 100+ Cisco event types to Solarwinds for them to be monitored.
