Send traps through PATROL SNMP Master Agent

The /snmp/trapConfTable configuration variable specifies whether or not the PATROL SNMP Subagent sends traps to the SNMP managers through the PATROL SNMP Master Agent. A list of managers is set in the PATROL SNMP Master Agent configuration file and is not created through the PSL function, snmp_trap_register_im().

Format and type of data

Boolean, yes or no

Default value


Minimum and maximum

Not applicable


This variable and the snmp/trapMibTable variable are not mutually exclusive. If both variables are set to yes, every time an activity satisfies the send-trap criteria, the PATROL Agent will send two traps, one to the SNMP managers listed in the snmpmagt.cfg file and one to the SNMP managers listed in /snmp/piV1m_list.

If an SNMP Manager is in the snmpmagt.cfg file and the /snmp/piV1m_list agent configuration variable, the manager will receive the same trap twice.
