CA Network Flow Analysis (NetQos / NFA)



When sending NFA 9.1.x and newer Trap Events to NPC/EM they are showing up with a Category of "Unknown". Also the Description will show up like "NQreporter_MIB.reporter0.1.0.3 Trap" instead of having the correct description.



NFA 9.1 and later

Any version of NPC/Event Manager



1) Download the .zip file from the FTP link below to your NPC server:


2) Extract the zip file.

Copy the .xml files to the locations below:

NetQoSEventRules.xml -> \NetQos\EventManager\EventManagerWS
NetQoSTrapRules.xml -> \NetQos\EventManager\EventManagerService


3) Copy the Reporter.mib file to the directory below:



4) Open a command prompt and change directory to:


Then run the command below to import the updated NFA mib:

5) Recycle the NetQos Mysql51 service on the NPC/Event Manager server and wait for some time for new traps to come in from NFA, and the new trap events should now be translated properly.

**Note you should be at least NPC version 6.1.194 and Event Manager version 2.1.116 for the events to be displayed**
