#vROps 6.3 – SNMP filtering

vRealize-Operations-Manager-Logo_thumb.jpgSo one of the most common questions I get from customers regarding vROps is alert filtering and up until very recently the only way to filter was either by email alerting or via the REST plugin. However 9/10 customers wanted to use SNMP and with vROps it was a question of switching on the fire-hose and pointing it to the receiver and let that end point or middle-ware handle the torrent of data. This was naturally not always well received and in some cases rendered that option as a dead end.

However I was delighted to see in 6.3 that you can now indeed filter SNMP as well.

So how do we do this?

From the home page click content
snmp-filter-content

 

 

 

 

Then from the content menu select notifications

snmp-filter-notifications

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then in the main window click the green plus icon to create a new notification filter.

You can then create the filter you want and then when happy click save.

snmp-filter

 

 

 

 

That’s it job done!
