SolarWinds Orion


The SolarWinds Orion DSM for JSAsupports SNMPv2 and SNMPv3 configured alerts from the SolarWinds Alert Manager.

The events are sent to JSA using syslog. Before you can integrate JSA, you must configure the SolarWinds Alert Manager to create SNMP traps and forward syslog events.

To configure SNMP traps in the SolarWinds Orion Alert Manager:

  1. Select Start >All Programs >SolarWinds Orion >Alerting, Reporting, and Mapping >Advanced Alert Manager.

    The Alert Manager Quick Start is displayed.

  2. Click Configure Alerts.

    The Manage Alerts window is displayed.

  3. Select an existing alert and click Edit.
  4. Select the Triggered Actions tab.
  5. Click Add New Action.

    The Select an Action window is displayed.

  6. Select Send an SNMP Trap and click OK.
  7. Configure the SNMP Trap Definitions— Type the IP address of the JSA consoleor Event Collector
  8. Configure the Trap Template— Select ForwardSyslog.
  9. Configure the SNMP Version— Select the SNMP Version to use to forward the event. JSA supports SNMPv2c or SNMPv3.

    SNMPv2c— Type the SNMP Community String to use for SNMPv2c authentication. The default Community String value is public.

    SNMPv3— Type the User name and select the Authentication Method to use for SNMPv3.

    JSA supports MD5 or SH1 as methods of authentication and DES56 or AES128 bit encryption.

  10. Click OK to save the SNMP trigger action.

    The Manage Alerts window is displayed.


    To verify that your SNMP trap is configured properly, select an alert that you edited and click Test. This action will trigger and forward the syslog event to JSA.

    Repeat these steps to configure the Alert Manager with all of the SNMP trap alerts that you want to monitor in JSA

    You can now configure the log source in JSA.
