Introduction

This document describes how to test the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) trap capability.

Prerequisites

The information in this document is based on any AsyncOS platform.

How do you test the SNMP trap capability without simulating actual outages or service-impacting events?

Use the snmptrap hidden command. This initiates an SNMP trap message to the configured SNMP trap servers (see snmpconfig).

You can choose from several trap events and object types and specify individual values as well.

3. FIPSModeEnableFailure
4. RAIDStatusChange
5. connectivityFailure
6. fanFailure
7. highTemperature
8. keyExpiration
9. linkUpDown
10. memoryUtilizationExceeded
11. powerSupplyStatusChange
12. resourceConservationMode
13. updateFailure
Enter the number of the trap you would like to send.
