Advanced Notification Originator

Multiple concurrent notifications

Send multiple SNMP notifications at once using the following options:

  • SNMPv2c and SNMPv3
  • with community name ‘public’
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • send INFORM notification
  • to multiple Managers
  • with TRAP ID ‘coldStart’ specified as a MIB symbol
  • include managed object information specified as var-bind objects pair

Here we tag each SNMP-COMMUNITY-MIB::snmpCommunityTable row with the same tag as SNMP-TARGET-MIB::snmpTargetAddrTable row what leads to excessive tables information.

Functionally similar to:

$ snmptrap -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com 12345 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.2
$ snmpinform -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com 12345 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.2
$ snmptrap -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com 12345 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.2
