SNMP Trap ReceiverΒΆ

SNMP Trap Receiver service allows to receive SNMP messages. A rough description of a Trap is that it is somewhat like a Syslog message, just over another protocol (SNMP). A trap is generated when the device feels it should do so and it contains the information that the device feels should be transmitted. It also contains some (few) standard items, as the version, community etc. MonitorWare Agent supports decoding of MID values and also supports forwarding SNMP traps via other protocols, for example syslog.
