About SNMP Notify Filters

Profiles indicating which targets should not receive SNMP notification messages are kept in the NotifyFilter table. If this table is empty, meaning that no filtering is associated with any SNMP target, then no filtering will take place. “Trap” or “inform” notifications will be sent to all destinations in the SNMP targetAddrTable that have tags matching those found in the NotifyFilter Table.

When the NotifyFilter table contains profile entries, the SNMP agent will find any filter profile name that corresponds to the target parameter name contained in an outgoing notification message. It will then apply the appropriate subtree-specific filter when generating notification messages.
