DESCRIPTION

snmptrap

is an SNMP application that uses the SNMP TRAP operation to send
information to a network manager. One or more object identifiers
(OIDs) can be given as arguments on the command line. A type and a
value must accompany each object identifier. Each variable name is
given in the format specified in
variables(5).

When invoked as
snmpinform,

or when
-Ci

is added to the command line flags of snmptrap, it sends an
INFORM-PDU, expecting a response from the trap receiver,
retransmitting if required. Otherwise it sends an TRAP-PDU or
TRAP2-PDU.

If any of the required version 1 parameters,
enterprise-oid,

agent,

and
uptime

are specified as empty, it defaults to
1.3.6.1.4.1.3.1.1 (enterprises.cmu.1.1),

hostname,

and
host-uptime

respectively.

The
TYPE

is a single character, one of:


i


INTEGER
u


UNSIGNED
c


COUNTER32
s


STRING
x


HEX STRING
d


DECIMAL STRING
n


NULLOBJ
o


OBJID
t


TIMETICKS
a


IPADDRESS
b


BITS


which are handled in the same way as the
snmpset

command.

For example:

snmptrap -v 1 -c public manager enterprises.spider test-hub 3 0 ” interfaces.iftable.ifentry.ifindex.1 i 1

will send a generic linkUp trap to manager, for interface 1.
 

OPTIONS

snmptrap

takes the common options described in the
snmpcmd(1)

manual page in
addition to the
-Ci

option described above.
