MIBS and SNMP Traps

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows you to monitor all hosts installed on your network. SNMP alerts (traps) and data listening (MIB) can be configured using the SNMP Agent module in your firewall’s web administration interface.

In this module, you will be able to configure the workstations to which the firewall has to send SNMP events and alerts (traps) or to configure access to those that gather data. This manager allows you to communicate with the SNMP agent on a firewall and to obtain, manage and monitor data from any firewall through the network. The SNMP agent authorizes read-only access to supervisors that comply with SNMP versions v1, v2c, and v3.

To configure data tracking and to receive Stormshield traps, you must first group data from Stormshield Network’s information base (these MIBs are available on Stormshield Network’s website, at the address indicated in the section on Stormshield Network MIBs). MIB data consists of files in text format that describe a list of SNMP objects used by the supervisor. These MIBs therefore provision data that the supervisor would need in order to interpret SNMP traps, events and query messages sent to the firewall.

The values of Stormshield Network MIB traps are described in the following sections.
