Configuration

Add a new configuration file /etc/ovirt-engine/notifier/notifier.conf.d/99-snmp.conf to configure the SNMP.

Configuration for sending SNMPv3 NoAuthNoPriv traps as user ‘NoAuthNoPriv’.

  SNMP_MANAGERS=localhost
  SNMP_OID=1.3.6.1.4.1.2312.13.1.1
  FILTER="include:*(snmp:)"
  SNMP_VERSION=3
  SNMP_ENGINE_ID="80:00:00:00:01:02:06:06"
  SNMP_USERNAME=NoAuthNoPriv
  SNMP_SECURITY_LEVEL=1

Configuration for sending SNMPv3 AuthNoPriv traps as user ‘ovirtengine’ with snmp auth passphrase ‘authpass’.

  SNMP_MANAGERS=localhost
  SNMP_OID=1.3.6.1.4.1.2312.13.1.1
  FILTER="include:*(snmp:)"
  SNMP_VERSION=3
  SNMP_ENGINE_ID="80:00:00:00:01:02:05:05"
  SNMP_USERNAME=ovirtengine
  SNMP_AUTH_PROTOCOL=MD5
  SNMP_AUTH_PASSPHRASE=authpass
  SNMP_SECURITY_LEVEL=2

Configuration for sending SNMPv3 AuthPriv traps as user ‘ovirtengine’ with snmp auth passphrase ‘authpass’ and snmp priv passphrase ‘privpass’.

  SNMP_MANAGERS=localhost
  SNMP_OID=1.3.6.1.4.1.2312.13.1.1
  FILTER="include:*(snmp:)"
  SNMP_VERSION=3
  SNMP_ENGINE_ID="80:00:00:00:01:02:05:05"
  SNMP_USERNAME=ovirtengine
  SNMP_AUTH_PROTOCOL=MD5
  SNMP_AUTH_PASSPHRASE=authpass
  SNMP_PRIVACY_PROTOCOL=AES128
  SNMP_PRIVACY_PASSPHRASE=privpass
  SNMP_SECURITY_LEVEL=3

Net-Snmp configuration

Stop snmp services

  # service snmpd stop
  # service snmptrapd stop

Edit /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.conf to support version 3 traps and log traps to file.

  # version 3 traps: allow user ovirtengine to log,execute,net
  authUser log,execute,net ovirtengine
  
  # version 3 add a user NoAuthnoPriv who can send noAuthNoPriv 
  authUser log,execute,net NoAuthNoPriv noauth
  # Log incoming traps to /var/log/snmptrapd.log
  logOption f /var/log/snmptrapd.log

With latest net-snmp-5.7.3-38.fc28.x86_64 logOption is moved to a library specific directive from an application-level one. Edit /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.conf to add the library specific directive in front of logOption.

  # Log incoming traps to /var/log/snmptrapd.log
  [snmp] logOption f /var/log/snmptrapd.log

Create the users

edit /var/lib/net-snmp/snmpd.conf add createUser to support version 3 traps and edit /var/lib/net-snmp/snmptrapd.conf add creatUser to support version 3 traps

  createUser -e 0x8000000001020505 ovirtengine MD5 authpass AES privpass
  createUser -e 0x8000000001020606 NoAuthNoPriv

Edit /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf

  rwuser ovirtengine
  rwuser NoAuthNoPriv noauth

Start the snmp services

  # service snmpd start
  # service snmptrapd start

Test by sending SNMPv3 traps

  # snmptrap -v 3 -n "" -l noAuthNoPriv -u NoAuthNoPriv -e 0x8000000001020606 localhost 0 linkUp.0
  # snmptrap -v 3 -n "" -a MD5 -A authpass -l authNoPriv -u ovirtengine -e 0x8000000001020505 localhost 0 linkUp.0
  # snmptrap -v 3 -n "" -a MD5 -A authpass -x AES -X privpass -l authPriv -u engine -e 0x8000000001020505 localhost 0 linkUp.0

See traps in /var/log/snmptrapd.log

  tail -n 40 /var/log/snmptrapd.log

Notes:

  • SNMP_MANAGER (net-snmp) must be properly installed and configured in order for the notifier to send SNMPv3 traps.
