Scotty's SNMP trap receiver (part of tkined) gives me more-or-less useful trap info such as Mon Nov 09 16:06:23 GMT 1998 SNMPv1 trap from [18.104.22.168]: sysUpTime.0 = 0d 2:37:44.02 snmpTrapOID.0 = IF-MIB!linkUp ifIndex.0 = 96 ifAdminStatus.0 = up ifOperStatus.0 = up snmpTrapEnterprise.0 = rcTraps or (where it hasn't got the appropriate MIB loaded, I guess): Tue Nov 10 02:13:36 GMT 1998 SNMPv1 trap from [22.214.171.124]: sysUpTime.0 = 61d 10:16:35.17 snmpTrapOID.0 = 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.0.2 enterprises.220.127.116.11.7.0 = 49:20:31:31:2F:31:30:2F:39:38:20:30:32:3A:31:33:3A:33:36:20:74:69:6D:65 :70:3A:20:63:6C:69:65:6E:74:20:70:6F:6C:6C:69:6E:67:20:73:65:72:76:65:72:20:61:74:20:31:33:34:2E:32:3 2:35:2E:33:32:2E:31:31 snmpTrapEnterprise.0 = enterprises.18.104.22.168.11.3 - but I have to be running Tkined to catch the traps (I think) All NOCOL's trapmon gives me is reports like: Wed Nov 18 13:23:00 1998 [trapmon]: SITE Unknown 22.214.171.124 VAR Enterprise/5 0 0 T I'm not sure how much use most SNMP traps (e.g. system restart, link up/down) are to NOCOL: only systems sending repeated traps for e.g. excessive errors/utilisation on a link fit in with NOCOL's escalating-severity reporting stategy.
