Object Description
Global Settings
Mode Indicates the trap mode operation. Possible modes are:
  • Enabled: Enable SNMP trap mode operation.
  • Disabled: Disable SNMP trap mode operation.
Trap Destination Configurations
Name Indicates the trap Configuration's name. Indicates the trap destination's name.
Enable Indicates the trap destination mode operation. Possible modes are:
  • Enabled: Enable SNMP trap mode operation.
  • Disabled: Disable SNMP trap mode operation.
Version Indicates the SNMP trap supported version. Possible versions are:
  • SNMP v1: Set SNMP trap supported version 1.
  • SNMP v2c: Set SNMP trap supported version 2c.
  • SNMP v3: Set SNMP trap supported version 3.
Destination Address Indicates the SNMP trap destination address; only a valid IP address in dotted decimal notation ('x.y.z.w') is allowed.

A valid hostname, a string drawn from the alphabet (A-Za-z), digits (0-9), dot (.), dash (-), without spaces, is also allowed. The first character must be an alpha character, and the first and last characters must not be a dot or a dash.

Indicates the SNMP trap destination IPv6 address. IPv6 address is in 128-bit records represented as eight fields of up to four hexadecimal digits with a colon separating each field (:). For example, fe80::215:c5ff:fe03:4dc7. The symbol :: is a special syntax that can be used as a shorthand way of representing multiple 16-bit groups of contiguous zeros; but it can appear only once. It can also represent a valid IPv4 address, such as ::192.1.2.34.

Destination port Indicates the SNMP trap destination port. SNMP Agent will send SNMP message via this port. The port range is 1 – 65535.

Object Description
Trap Mode Indicates the SNMP trap mode operation. Possible modes are:
  • Enabled: Enable SNMP trap mode operation.
  • Disabled: Disable SNMP trap mode operation.
Trap Version Indicates the SNMP trap supported version. Possible versions are:
  • SNMP v1: Set SNMP trap supported version 1.
  • SNMP v2c: Set SNMP trap supported version 2c.
  • SNMP v3: Set SNMP trap supported version 3.
Trap Community Indicates the community access string when sending SNMP trap packet. Valid length is 0 – 255, and the allowed content is 33 – 126 ASCII characters.
Trap Destination Address Indicates the SNMP trap destination address, a valid IP address in dotted decimal notation ('x.y.z.w'). A valid hostname, a string drawn from the alphabet (A-Za-z), digits (0-9), dot (.), dash (-), without spaces, is also allowed. The first character must be an alpha character, and the first and last characters must not be a dot or a dash.
Trap Destination IIPv6 Address Indicates the SNMP trap destination IPv6 address. IPv6 address is in 128-bit records represented as eight fields of up to four hexadecimal digits with a colon separating each field (:). For example, fe80::215:c5ff:fe03:4dc7. The symbol :: is a special syntax that can be used as a shorthand way of representing multiple 16-bit groups of contiguous zeros; but it can appear only once. It can also represent a valid IPv4 address, such as ::192.1.2.34.
Trap Authentication Failure Indicates that the SNMP entity is permitted to generate authentication failure traps. Possible modes are:
  • Enabled: Enable SNMP trap authentication failure.
  • Disabled: Disable SNMP trap authentication failure.
Trap Link-up and Link-down Indicates the SNMP trap link-up and link-down mode operation. Possible modes are:
  • Enabled: Enable SNMP trap link-up and link-down mode operation.
  • Disabled: Disable SNMP trap link-up and link-down mode operation.
Trap Inform Mode Indicates the SNMP trap inform mode operation. Possible modes are:
  • Enabled: Enable SNMP trap inform mode operation.
  • Disabled: Disable SNMP trap inform mode operation.
Trap Inform Timeout (seconds) Indicates the SNMP trap inform timeout. The allowed range is 0 – 2147.
Trap Inform Retry Times Indicates the SNMP trap inform retry times. The allowed range is 0 – 255.
Trap Probe Security Engine ID Indicates the SNMP trap probe security engine ID mode of operation. Possible values are:
  • Enabled: Enable SNMP trap probe security engine ID mode of operation.
  • Disabled: Disable SNMP trap probe security engine ID mode of operation.
Trap Security Engine ID Indicates the SNMP trap security engine ID. SNMPv3 sends traps and informs using USM for authentication and privacy. A unique engine ID for these traps and informs is needed. When Trap Probe Security Engine ID is enabled, the ID will be probed automatically. Otherwise, the ID specified in this field is used. The string must contain an even number (in hexadecimal format) with number 10 – 64 digits, but all zeros and all Fs are not allowed.
Trap Security Name Indicates the SNMP trap security name. SNMPv3 traps and informs using USM for authentication and privacy. A unique security name is needed when traps and informs are enabled.
