Setting Up Alerts

  • Last updated on

This article refers to Barracuda Message Archiver Legacy Release firmware or higher.

SNMP Alerts

The Barracuda Message Archiver offers the ability to monitor various settings via SNMP including:

  • Traffic and policy statistics, such as:
    • Amount of overall traffic;
    • Number of messages that triggered a particular policy category;
    • Number of messages currently in the indexing queue;
    • Energize Updates Subscription status.
  • Performance statistics, including CPU temperature and system load.

Additionally, the Barracuda Message Archiver monitors disk usage via SNMP.

Emailed System Alerts

Use the BASIC > Administration page to configure the Barracuda Message Archiver to automatically email notifications to specified addresses; use a comma to separate multiple addresses.

System alerts notify you when:

  • Your Energize Updates subscription is about to expire
  • Possible backup, synchronization, Journal account, or other connectivity failures
  • Your system is low on disk space

SNMP Manager

You can use the SNMP Manager to query system information.

Set Up SNMP Agent

When setting up the SNMP manager, you are required to set two passwords, one for authentication and one for encryption.

Use the following steps to set up SNMP Manager:

  1. Log in to the Barracuda Message Archiver web interface, and go to the BASIC > Administration page.
  2. In the SNMP Manager section, set Enable SNMP Agent to Yes. This setting allows the Barracuda Message Archiver to accept and respond to SNMP queries.
  3. Enter the SNMP username for the appliance's agent in the User field, and the associated SNMP authentication password in the Authentication Password field.
  4. Select the Authentication Method as SHA or MD5; note that SHA is a more secure authentication mode.
  5. Enter an SNMP privacy password in the Privacy Password field; if you wish, this can be the same as the Authentication Password.
  6. Select the Encryption Method as AES or DES; note that AES is a more secure encryption method.
  7. Click Save at the top of the page to save your settings.
Set SNMP Notifications

You can set up SNMP notifications to one or more servers. You are required to set both an authentication and an encryption password for each configured server.

Use the following steps to set up SNMP notifications:

  1. Log in to the Barracuda Message Archiver web interface, and go to the BASIC > Administration page.
  2. In the SNMP Notifications section, set Enable SNMP Notifications to Yes.
  3. In the Server field, enter the server IP address or hostname, and enter the Port number.
  4. Enter the SNMP username for the appliance's agent in the User field, and the associated SNMP authentication password in the Authentication Password field.
  5. Select the Authentication and Encryption methods.
  6. Enter the SNMP privacy password in the Privacy Password field.
  7. Click Add
  8. Repeat steps 3 through 7 to add additional servers.
  9. Click Save at the top of the page to save your settings.
Import MIB and REF Files

Once you set up the SNMP Manager, import the following MIB and REF files to your SNMP monitor (note that these files are standard across all Barracuda Networks products):

  • The Barracuda Message Archiver MIB
  • The Barracuda Reference MIB (standard across all Barracuda Networks products)

You can monitor objects included in these MIB and REF files either from custom scripts or from your SNMP monitor. The MIB files are located on the Barracuda Message Archiver and can be obtained by replacing MGMTIP in the following links with the management IP address of your Barracuda Message Archiver:

  • http://MGMTIP:8000/Barracuda-BMA-MIB.txt
  • http://MGMTIP:8000/Barracuda-REF-MIB.txt
  • http://MGMTIP:8000/Barracuda-SMI.txt

Objects

When you open the Barracuda Message Archiver MIBs, you can see the objects provided by the system, as listed in Table 1.
