It is possible to forward SNMP traps to a machine that is not part of the cluster where you can use the
snmptrapd daemon on the external machine and customize how to respond to the notifications.
Perform the following steps to forward SNMP traps in a cluster to a machine that is not one of the cluster nodes:
On the external host that will receive the traps, edit the
/etc/snmp/snmptrapd.conf configuration file to specify your community strings. For example, you can use the following entry to allow the
snmptrapd daemon to process notifications using the
public community string.
authCommunity log,execute,net public
On the external host that will receive the traps, make sure that the
snmptrapd daemon is enabled and running by executing the following commands:
chkconfig snmptrapd on
service snmptrapd start
For further information on processing SNMP notifications, see the
snmptrapd.conf man page.
