snmp traps to syslog

I am implementing monitoring on our RHEL 3 boxes and Solaris 9 boxes. I've read and heard that there is a way to have any local snmp traps sent to the local syslog. How can this be done ?

I am already running a syslog server on the network and it would be convienent to just have everything (syslogs and traps) sent via syslog if possible.

If I understand your post correctly, you have a couple of options:

1) If you have applications capable of sending snmptraps (vs. syslog), then enable snmptrapd on your syslog server. Snmptrapd can be configured to log received snmp traps via syslog. See the -L option.

2) If you are simply wanting to have all remote syslog daemons log to a centralized syslog server. Then add the following to each remote syslog.conf:
*.* @

Obviously, the syslog server running at needs to have the -r option enabled. See: man syslogd
