SNMPv1 TRAP variants

Custom SNMPv1 TRAP

Send SNMPv1 TRAP through unified SNMPv3 message processing framework.

Original v1 TRAP fields are mapped into dedicated variable-bindings, (see RFC2576) for details.

  • SNMPv1
  • with community name ‘public’
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • send TRAP notification
  • with Generic Trap #6 (enterpriseSpecific) and Specific Trap 432
  • overriding Uptime value with 12345
  • overriding Agent Address with ‘127.0.0.1’
  • overriding Enterprise OID with 1.3.6.1.4.1.20408.4.1.1.2
  • include managed object information ‘1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0’ = ‘my system’

Functionally similar to:

$ snmptrap -v1 -c public demo.snmplabs.com 1.3.6.1.4.1.20408.4.1.1.2 127.0.0.1 6 432 12345 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0 s “my system”
from pysnmp.hlapi import *

errorIndication, errorStatus, errorIndex, varBinds = next(
    sendNotification(
        SnmpEngine(),
        CommunityData('public', mpModel=0),
        UdpTransportTarget(('demo.snmplabs.com', 162)),
        ContextData(),
        'trap',
        NotificationType(
            ObjectIdentity('1.3.6.1.4.1.20408.4.1.1.2.0.432'),
        ).addVarBinds(
            ('1.3.6.1.2.1.1.3.0', 12345),
            ('1.3.6.1.6.3.18.1.3.0', '127.0.0.1'),
            ('1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.4.3.0', '1.3.6.1.4.1.20408.4.1.1.2'),
            ('1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0', OctetString('my system'))
        )
    )
)
if errorIndication:
    print(errorIndication)
