Sending SNMP traps


Hi!

We have a situation where we have to set up a server to send traps with information regarding CPU, memory usage, etc.

I know snmpd can be set up to allow another process to request snmp information about the server, but can it be done the other way around (have a host send information about itself to another server through snmp)?

Thanks in advance.

Set it your server as SNMP agent and send the trap to SNMP manager

WHat's trap2sink? Can¿t find it either by package name or file name in apt-cache or apt-file.
