Cisco SNMP Traps forwarding to Splunk

New Member

Hi Team,

I am completely new to Splunk, Due to one of the project requirement we are trying to send SNMP Traps information from Cisco Devices to Splunk Enterprise directly. But i am not seeing any logs at Splunk side.

Not sure if i have to install any additional tools or any configuration required to perform this element.

Hi Chaitu kranthi,
The people who are managing the Cisco network Devices have to configure to send the data from Source IP to Destination IP( splunk server) UDP:162
Configure the remote devices to send their traps directly to the Splunk Enterprise instance IP address. The default port for SNMP traps is udp:162.
You have to configure "Data Input" -> UDP to add port 162 to receive the SNMP data. As Mmodestino mentined this link has all the details. https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/Data/SendSNMPeventstoSplunk

Hi chaitu_kranthi,

Are you the one that would be configuring the Splunk side?

I would recommend starting here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/Data/SendSNMPeventstoSplunk
