No Juniper alarms in SNMP for MX204
Open, Stalled, LowPublic



The two main options are syslog and SNMP traps.

I added the following alert rule in LibreNMS, to email only me for now.

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-operations) [2019-12-19T06:51:59Z] <XioNoX> cr2-eqdfw:delete chassis alarm management-ethernet - T241105

As a test, I pushed the following:

[edit chassis]
-   alarm {
-       management-ethernet {
-           link-down ignore;
-       }
-   }

As cr2-eqdfw doesn't have a mgmt link, it did detect the issue:

ayounsi@cr2-eqdfw# run show system alarms 
1 alarms currently active
Alarm time               Class  Description
2019-12-19 06:52:10 UTC  Major  Management Ethernet Links Down

But... nothing in syslog...

I reached out to our Juniper account rep, after a few emails they opened ER-080949 (Enhancement Request).

Since Junos 15, it's possible to generate custom OIDs using python scripts: Might be worth investigating.

ayounsi lowered the priority of this task from Medium to Low.

At least Alarms are spamming us in Rancid, so hard to miss :)
