SNMP problem

L0 Member

Hi everyone


I have a palo alto device with snmp configuration to send snmp packets when something happen (for example when an interface is down or up), the problem is when an interface is down the snmp server does not see snmp packets and if I make a packet capture I only see the next 




My palo alto device is and the snmp server is but I see packets with is this the oid?

If an interface is down is not suppose the oid 1.3.6 or something like this? 


hope someone can help me

The oid is a polling request from your snmp manager not a trap.  The only traps here are the system uptime from the PA to the snmp manager.  This validates that you have the trap configuration setup since they are being sent and seen.


But you are saying you dropped a link in this period.  So there is no link down trap here being sent.  You do need to enable traps for policies and alerts but my understanding is that standard traps like the link down should be visible as soon as traps are enabled.  So there may be some kind of bug here.
