Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 We are using OGG Monitor v11.1.1.1.0 configured with SNMP alerts to trigger when certain alert criteria is triggered.  However, the SNMP alerts don't reflect the identifier in the MIP. SNMP MIB has identifier 1.3.6.1.4.1.111.17:

os> cd <monitor install>/cfg
os> cat GoldenGate-Monitor-mib.mib

 OracleGoldenGateMonitorMibModule MODULE-IDENTITY

     DESCRIPTION
         "MIB objects module for Oracle GoldenGate Monitor Server"
     ::= { enterprises 111 1 }

 monitor OBJECT-IDENTITY
         STATUS current
         DESCRIPTION
                 "Oracle GoldenGate Monitor server side objects root."
         -- 1.3.6.1.4.1.111.17
         ::= { enterprises 111 17 }

But in SNMP traps, the identifiers for each message are based on entries in <Monitor install>/cfg/SNMPJMXMapping.xml:

<OID1.3.6.1.4.1.18657.10.1.21.1.2 name="alertName"
<OID1.3.6.1.4.1.18657.10.1.21.1.3 name="alertTime"
<OID1.3.6.1.4.1.18657.10.1.21.1.4 name="alertObjectName"
<OID1.3.6.1.4.1.18657.10.1.21.1.5 name="alertSeverity"
<OID1.3.6.1.4.1.18657.10.1.21.1.6 name="alertMessage"

These appear in each SNMP trap as:

 #0 enterprises.18657.10.1.21.1.2: sfo310000_message
 #1 enterprises.18657.10.1.21.1.3: 08282012111721901
 #2 enterprises.18657.10.1.21.1.4: EX_AA
 #3 enterprises.18657.10.1.21.1.5: 1
 #4 enterprises.18657.10.1.21.1.6: The alert was triggered because:
 Lag = 4.540 sec.
