Common notifications

SNMPv1 TRAP with defaults

Send SNMPv1 TRAP through unified SNMPv3 message processing framework using the following options:

  • SNMPv1
  • with community name ‘public’
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • send TRAP notification
  • with Generic Trap #1 (warmStart) and Specific Trap 0
  • with default Uptime
  • with default Agent Address
  • with Enterprise OID 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 0.0.0.0 1 0 0 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0 s “my system”

SNMPv2c TRAP via Twisted inline callbacks

Send SNMPv2c TRAP through unified SNMPv3 message processing framework using the following options:

  • SNMPv2c
  • with community name ‘public’
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • send TRAP notification
  • with Generic Trap #1 (warmStart) and Specific Trap 0
  • include managed object information ‘1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0’ = ‘my system’

Functionally similar to:

$ snmptrap -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com 12345 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.2 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0 s “Hello from Twisted”
from twisted.internet.task import react, defer
from pysnmp.hlapi.twisted import *

def sendtrap(reactor, snmpEngine, hostname):

    yield sendNotification(
        snmpEngine,
        CommunityData('public', mpModel=0),
        UdpTransportTarget((hostname, 162)),
        ContextData(),
        'trap',
        NotificationType(

        ).addVarBinds(
            ObjectType(ObjectIdentity('1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0'), OctetString('Hello from Twisted'))
        )
    )

# Preserve SnmpEngine instance across [potentially] multiple calls to safe on initialization
