With the CCMS monitoring architecture, SAP has a flexible management platform for monitoring and managing complex system landscapes of SAP and non-SAP components. The SNMP functions, among other things, are available to you for communicating with external system management programs and monitored components.
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is the de facto standard for managing networks and their components. For the monitoring architecture, it allows both communication with external management platforms and monitoring of SNMP-compatible devices. There is an auto-reaction method available to you for sending SNMP traps. If an alert occurs, the monitoring architecture starts the method which collects the required information and sends the trap to the external management platform.
To be able to send alerts as SNMP traps, you require the package SNMPLIB, which is available for releases as of SAP Web AS 6.10 (see also SAP Note 585110).
Perform the following steps (for a more detailed description of the steps, see Setting Up the Sending of SNMP Traps):
