   snmptrap is an SNMP application that uses the SNMP  TRAP  operation  to
   send  information to a network manager.  One or more object identifiers
   (OIDs) can be given as arguments on the command line.   A  type  and  a
   value  must  accompany  each  object identifier.  Each variable name is
   given in the format specified in variables(5).

   When invoked as snmpinform, or when -Ci is added to  the  command  line
   flags  of  snmptrap,  it sends an INFORM-PDU, expecting a response from
   the trap receiver, retransmitting if required.  Otherwise it  sends  an

   If any of the required version 1 parameters, enterprise-oid, agent, and
   uptime  are  specified  as  empty,  it  defaults  to
   (enterprises.cmu.1.1), hostname, and host-uptime respectively.

   The TYPE is a single character, one of:
          i  INTEGER
          u  UNSIGNED
          c  COUNTER32
          s  STRING
          x  HEX STRING
          d  DECIMAL STRING
          n  NULLOBJ
          o  OBJID
          t  TIMETICKS
          a  IPADDRESS
          b  BITS
   which are handled in the same way as the snmpset command.

   For example:

   snmptrap  -v  1  -c  public  manager enterprises.spider test-hub 3 0 ''
   interfaces.iftable.ifentry.ifindex.1 i 1

   will send a generic linkUp trap to manager, for interface 1.


   snmptrap takes the common options described in  the  snmpcmd(1)  manual
   page in addition to the -Ci option described above.  Note that snmptrap
   REQUIRES  an argument specifying the agent to query as described there.
