Trap, Syslog and TFTP Servers
Traps are unsolicited device notifications. Quantellium only accepts Traps from “known” devices (placed on a project map). Traps can be informational (port up / down, new user logged in) but also critical (fan problem, power failure).
In order not to miss critical device messages it is important to limit the number of incoming traps by adding trap filters.
Incoming Traps can also be forwarded to other systems (log management systems) for further processing. For more information on Trap filters read:
Syslog is a widely used standard for message logging. System- and network managers can use syslog for system management and security auditing as well as general informational, analysis, and debugging messages.
A wide variety of devices (such as printers and routers) and message receivers across multiple platforms use the syslog standard. Because of this, administrators can use syslog to integrate log data from different types of systems in a central repository. Quantellium provides a basic Syslog server.

TFTP stands for Trivial File Transfer Protocol. TFTP is a mechanism to tranfer files from one device to another. It is typically used by the network administrator to copy configuration files, log files and firmware to/from networking devices. TFTP uses the UDP protocol over port 69. The MonitorONE G2 TFTP server is implemented as a Quantellium service. Read more..
