The Event Console can be configured to receive SNMP traps. In the past it only extracted all raw OIDs and values from the incoming trap and putting them together in the event message as they come in.

Now it is possible to use SNMP MIB files to let the Event Console translate the OIDs, values and units contained in the traps.

This feature is disabled by default. You need to enable the Event Console and the SNMP trap handling by using omd config in OMD environments.

Then you need to enable the trap translation in Event Console > Settings by setting Translate SNMP traps to on. Finally you need to activate the pending EC-Change.

Now all available MIBs will be used to translate the incoming traps.

You can now upload custom MIB files using the MIB management page at Event Console > SNMP MIBs which will be used for translation after reloading the Event Console.
