View SNMP traps in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console (deprecated)

This SolarWinds Platform topic applies to the following products if you are NOT using the Orion Log Viewer to monitor SNMP traps.


As of SolarWinds Platform 2022.3, SNMP Trap Viewer is no longer available and the Traps view was replaced by SolarWinds Platform Log Viewer. See View logs and events with the SolarWinds Platform Log Viewer.
  1. Log in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console.
  2. Click Alerts & Activity > Traps in the menu bar.

    Starting with Orion Platform 2019.4, you can switch to displaying traps in the Log Viewer.

  3. If you are using Orion Platform 2019.2 and earlier, or if you decided to keep the Traps view in Orion Platform 2019.4, you can use Traps as follows:
    1. To display only traps relevant for a specific device, specify the device:
      • To display only traps for a device, select the device in the Network Object field.
      • To view traps for certain device type, select the device type in the Type of Device field.
    2. Define what traps you want to view:
      • To view only traps of a designated type, select the type in the Trap Type field.
      • To view only traps originating from a specific IP address, type the IP Address in the Source IP Address field.
      • To view only traps with a designated community string, select the string in the Community String field.
      • To view only traps from a specific period of time, select the time period from the Time Period menu.
    3. Confirm the number of traps displayed in the Number of Displayed Traps field.
    4. Click Refresh to update the Traps view with your new settings.
