snmptrapd

Receive SNMP TRAP messages

Syntax:

snmptrapd [-d] [-p] [-p port] [-v 1|2] 

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:

-d
Dump input and output packets.
-p
Print messages to standard output.

By default, messages are sent to the system log. In order to capture the log messages, you need to have syslogd running.

-p port
Specify the destination port number.
-v 1|2
SNMP version (default is 2).

Description:

The snmptrapd utility receives SNMP TRAP messages sent to the snmp-trap port on the local machine. If you specify -p, snmptrapd prints messages to standard output. The messages are of the form:



------------------------  Notification  ------------------------
10.0.0.59: Cold Start Trap (0) Uptime: 1 day, 6:11:24
system.sysDescr.0 = "SUN 3/60: SUNOS4.0"

You must have superuser privileges when you run snmptrapd.

Environment variables:

MIBFILE
Specify the location of the mib.txt file. For example, MIBFILE=path/mib.txt (the default path is /etc).
SUFFIX
If SUFFIX exists in your environment, all object IDs with a symbolic name are printed with only the last element. Examples:

This ID:

system.syscontact.0
      

is printed as:

syscontact.0
      

This ID:

udp.udpTable.udpEntry.udpLocalAddress.0.0.0.161
      

is printed as:

udpLocalAddress.0.0.0.161
