eTrap is a windows service that converts the windows events from eventlog into SNMP traps. The eTrap SNMP traps can be easily integrated into NAGIOS to be able to monitor the windows systems and their services based on the generated windows events. The windows events that are to be converted can be effectively filtered, so no unimportant events are sent out to NAGIOS.
eTrap provides a simple and effective solution to keep your Windows based systems under control and to be able to monitor them in a very detailed way.

Thanks for the great improvements and the clear UI!

Somehow my previous question has gone away, so i repeat it:
Are there any step-by-step configuration guide available for setting up the event filters for a specific windows service?

etrap.ini is located in C:Windows, everything is fine. BUT traps will be sent to localhost?
How can I set this up. Google says nothing :(

Sorry for the late reply. We were so busy implementing new features and redesigning eTrap. Please check the new version available.

Great addition!

There was one major hitch that I encountered while implementing this solution. the .ini file "etrap.ini" MUST be located at c:windows. This seems to be a hard-coded location.

Once the .ini file was properly located, and the service had been installed and started, all events from the Windows event logs were forwarded to Nagios under one OID.

Unlike the built-in Windows Eventlog-to-SNMP Trap functionality, this handy utility will allow you to send traps for any event matching a set of rules, so you don't need to know in advance which events you want to look for. Seems to work very well with the SNMP trap processing functionality in Opsview.
