SNMP v1/v2c communities

An SNMP community is a grouping of equipment for network administration purposes. You must configure your FortiManager to belong to at least one SNMP community so that community’s SNMP managers can query the FortiManager system information and receive SNMP traps from it.

These SNMP communities do not refer to the FortiGate devices the FortiManager system is managing.

Each community can have a different configuration for SNMP traps and can be configured to monitor different events. You can add the IP addresses of up to eight hosts to each community. Hosts can receive SNMP device traps and information.

To create a new SNMP community:
  1. Go to System Settings > Advanced > SNMP and ensure the SNMP agent is enabled.
  2. In the SNMP v1/v2c section, click Create New in the toolbar. The New SNMP Community pane opens.

  3. Configure the following options, then click OK to create the community.

    Name

    Enter a name to identify the SNMP community. This name cannot be edited later.

    Hosts

    The list of hosts that can use the settings in this SNMP community to monitor the FortiManager system.

    When you create a new SNMP community, there are no host entries. Select Add to create a new entry that broadcasts the SNMP traps and information to the network connected to the specified interface.

     

    IP Address/Netmask

    Enter the IP address and netmask of an SNMP manager.

    By default, the IP address is 0.0.0.0 so that any SNMP manager can use this SNMP community.

     

    Interface

    Select the interface that connects to the network where this SNMP manager is located from the dropdown list. This must be done if the SNMP manager is on the Internet or behind a router.

     

    Delete

    Click the delete icon to remove this SNMP manager entry.

     

    Add

    Select to add another entry to the Hosts list. Up to eight SNMP manager entries can be added for a single community.

    Queries

    Enter the port number (161 by default) the FortiManager system uses to send v1 and v2c queries to the FortiManager in this community. Enable queries for each SNMP version that the FortiManager system uses.

    Traps

    Enter the Remote port number (162 by default) the FortiManager system uses to send v1 and v2c traps to the FortiManager in this community. Enable traps for each SNMP version that the FortiManager system uses.

    SNMP Event

    Enable the events that will cause SNMP traps to be sent to the community.

    • Log disk space low
    • CPU Overuse
    • Memory Low
    • System Restart
