snmptrap(1)                        Net-SNMP                        snmptrap(1)


       snmptrap, snmpinform - sends an SNMP notification to a manager


       snmptrap  -v 1 [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Ci] enterprise-oid agent generic-trap
       specific-trap uptime [OID TYPE VALUE]...

       snmptrap -v [2c|3] [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Ci]  uptime  trap-oid  [OID  TYPE

       snmpinform  -v  [2c|3]  [COMMON  OPTIONS]  uptime  trap-oid  [OID  TYPE


       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 (enter-
       prises.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.


       snmptrap takes the common options described in  the  snmpcmd(1)  manual
       page in addition to the -Ci option described above.


       snmpcmd(1), snmpset(1), variables(5).
