SNMPTRAP(1)                        Net-SNMP                        SNMPTRAP(1)



NAME
       snmptrap, snmpinform - sends an SNMP notification to a manager

SYNOPSIS
       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 VALUE]...

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

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.
