Notification Originator

The following script sends SNMP TRAP notification using the following options:

The following Net-SNMP's command will produce similar SNMP notification:

$ snmptrap -v1 -c public 127.0.0.1 1.3.6.1.4.1.20408.4.1.1.2 127.0.0.1 1 0 12345

from pysnmp.carrier.asynsock.dispatch import AsynsockDispatcher
from pysnmp.carrier.asynsock.dgram import udp, udp6
from pyasn1.codec.ber import encoder
from pysnmp.proto import api

# Protocol version to use
pMod = api.protoModules[api.protoVersion1]
#pMod = api.protoModules[api.protoVersion2c]

# Build PDU
trapPDU =  pMod.TrapPDU()
pMod.apiTrapPDU.setDefaults(trapPDU)

# Traps have quite different semantics across proto versions
if pMod == api.protoModules[api.protoVersion1]:
    pMod.apiTrapPDU.setEnterprise(trapPDU, (1,3,6,1,4,1,20408,4,1,1,2))
    pMod.apiTrapPDU.setGenericTrap(trapPDU, 'coldStart')

# Build message

transportDispatcher = AsynsockDispatcher()

# UDP/IPv4
transportDispatcher.registerTransport(
    udp.domainName, udp.UdpSocketTransport().openClientMode()
    )
transportDispatcher.sendMessage(
    encoder.encode(trapMsg), udp.domainName, ('localhost', 162)
    )

# UDP/IPv6
transportDispatcher.registerTransport(
    udp6.domainName, udp6.Udp6SocketTransport().openClientMode()
)
transportDispatcher.sendMessage(
    encoder.encode(trapMsg), udp6.domainName, ('::1', 162)
)

# Dispatcher will finish as all scheduled messages are sent
transportDispatcher.runDispatcher()

transportDispatcher.closeDispatcher()
