  • Patent number: 6182157
    Abstract: An alarm monitoring apparatus and method allows a user of a management station to dynamically create and flexibly configure SNMP traps based on any management information base variable without having to define an exhaustive set of trap definitions in a management information base. Apparatus for monitoring status of a network device includes a processor assembly coupled to the network device and a data memory member accessible by the processor assembly for indicating user-defined alarm thresholds of the subject device. The processor assembly obtains threshold data from the data memory member and compares current status to the obtained threshold data. Upon a threshold being met by the current status, the processor assembly transmits an indication of threshold condition of the subject device to a system management station across a network. The data memory member is a database formed of a plurality of records defined by a management information base.
