Hi all,


I'm trying to get SNMP Traps from VMWare showing up in Xymon.


I think the issue is with the trap format from VMWare and I suspect I
may need to tweak my snmptt.conf file for this. 


I have attached my snmptt.conf file and here is a an example of what I
am seeing in my /var/log/messages file. (Text in italics has replaced
what actually shows in the log for security reasons)


Jul  8 11:08:02 hostname snmptrapd[7399]: 2011-07-08 11:08:02 full host

]:60701) TRAP, SNMP v1, community public
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.50 Enterprise Specific Trap (201) Uptime:
28 days, 20:3

3:40.64         SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.50.301 = STRING: "At vm"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.50.302 = STRING: " "       SNMP

v2-SMI::enterprises.6876.50.303 = STRING: "host name"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.50.304 = STRING: "Error (Red)"

enterprises.6876.50.305 = STRING: "Error (Red)"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.50.306 = STRING: "Heartbeat is missing for
VM - (Heartb

eat stopped)"



>From what I can see it appears that VMWare sends multiple OID's in the
same trap. 


Has anybody got this working or can suggest a solution?
