  • SNMP use a simplest command between Manager and Agent, using UDP/IP. “connection less”

  • Most of communication start by a manager.

  • Agent communication is response for manager.

  • SNMP Traps: Agent start communication when predetermined even occur.

    • IP Address

    • Subnet mask

    • Default Route

    • ARP Cache

  • For each new IP address found in the ARP Cache or Default Route from the previous step, ping it to make sure it is alive, make an SNMP query to determine the SNMP version supported, then use SNMP to retrieve the configuration information noted in step 3

Controlling netmon discovery
Controlling Netmon Discovery

Viewing Alarms

Ch: 22


  • Trap : A specific message that is sent by an SNMP agent to UDP port 162 (the default) of the NNM management station is called a trap, or snmptrap. These messages always originate from outside the NNM process structure. They are received by ovtrapd for processing into NNM.

  • Event : An internal message format resulting from a trap which has NNM header information added to it, or a message that occurs between two NNM processes. It indicates an incident of interest, regardless of the source of the incident.

  • Alarm: After an event has been received, processing of the event occurs. The result of the processing is an alarm. Not all events result in alarms, but every alarm is the result of one or more vents.

Nnm event processing
NNM Event Processing

  • When an incident does occur, the involved NNM process or SNMP agent generates and sends an event to NNM’s pmd process. Events sent by SNMP agents are called SNMP traps.

  • NNM services can request information from outside the management station. For example, netmon polls the network for discovery of objects.

  • Services can send events to each other. For example, the pmd service sends alarms to the ovalarmsrv process to display the alarms in the alarms browser.

Nnm event processing1
NNM Event Processing

  • If the event comes from outside the management station, it is received by ovtrapd.

  • ovtrapd sends the event on to the postmaster, pmd.

  • pmd sends all events, whether from ovtrapd or another process, through the Event Correlation System (ECS), where the events are processed.

  • Some of the events may be sent to processes that have subscribed to them. Other events may be correlated. Sometimes a new event, or alarm, is generated.

Alarm browser
Alarm Browser

  • ovalarmsrv subscribes to all alarm events.

  • For example, netmon polls a device to see if it is up and running. When the device returns an event that says it is up, ovalarmsrv does not get the event. However, if the device does not respond, then an alarm results saying the device is unreachable. This alarm is sent to ovalarmsrv and appears in the alarms browser.

  • The ECS system correlates some events.

  • For example, netmon continues to poll the device that is not responding. Each time there is no response, an event occurs. After the first event, ECS correlates the events. In the alarms browser, you only see the first event.

  • Correlation of events can be turned on or off.

Browsing nnm alarms
Browsing NNM Alarms

  • Action  Alarm Details

  • Action  Show Correlated Alarms

  • Select node  Alarm

Event correlation system
Event Correlation System

  • ECS provides correlations for use with NNM which produce one of the following actions:

  • Pass Through - The event passes through ECS with no change.

  • Suppression - The event is suppressed within ECS. This event is not broadcasted to the NNM process.

  • Associated or correlated - The event is correlated with another event. A parent child relationship is set up with the events.

  • New event - A new event is generated as a result of the original event.

Configuring events size
Configuring Events size

  • To change the Alarm Browser size;

  • ovalarmsrv:ovalarmsrv:


  • By default: 3500 events

Hp open view nnm i

  • BSE: Binary Event Store

  • Log event. By default, incoming events and correlated alarms are logged to the Binary Event Store. The maximum size of the binary event store can be changed by modifying pmd.lrf. To increase the size of the binary event store from the default of 16 MB to 32MB:

  • Edit pmd.lrf and add the option shown in the example below:

  • pmd:pmd:


  • cd OV_LRF (on UNIX) or cd %OV_LRF% (on Windows)

  • ovaddobj pmd.lrf

  • ovstoppmd

  • ovstart -c
