Beginning on 2021-12-10, The Apache Software Foundation disclosed serious vulnerabilities in its widespread Log4j library. SocketStation and TrapStation do not use Log4j. However, an optional TrapStation integration for Kafka does. If you use TrapStation's Kafka target, a log4j*.jar file will be in TrapStation's libx/ folder. That file is a copy from your Kafka server. So, if you need to update your Kafka server's Log4j, update TrapStation's copy too, then restart. If you are not integrating Kafka, you can safely delete any Log4j files in TrapStation's libx/ folder, if any exist.

TrapStation is a transport hub for SNMP traps/notifications. Correlate, threshold, enrich, filter, translate SNMP versions, and forward to multiple SNMP managers. Then view graphs, search history, replay traps for testing. Overview… Use Cases… What Customers Say…

Live events suddenly become easier to access for multiple stakeholders and purposes. More…
