Task manager config snmp trap receiver.jpg

The maximum table sizes for the SNMP Trap Receiver are defined here. Keeping the tables set to a range that you will actually use will improve efficiency.

The default XML configuration file is entered here. This is the file that the SNMP Trap Receiver will attempt to automatically load upon first time startup. After that, settings are retained in the database, and further file activity can be managed on the Config File page for the SNMP Trap Receiver.

Activity timeout is a form of watchdog. If the task manager does not see the SNMP Trap Receiver task update its activity indicator within this amount of time, the task manager will restart the SNMP Trap Receiver. If set to zero, the watchdog is disabled. The task manager itself is restarted by the Linux cron if it stops responding.

IMPORTANT: Do not set the activity timeout for SNMP to less than 120 seconds. While the SNMP functions will update their timers much faster during normal operation, they will time out during startup while waiting for all of the background SNMP tasks and daemons to start. Setting the activity timeout too short for SNMP tasks will result in a system that can never fully start up.
