SNMP Trap Broker service in Linux


Hi All,

Is there any linux application that acts as an SNMP trap broker for multiple applications. I am looking for something on the same lines as the 'SNMP Trap Service' in Microsoft windows.

Regards,
Kishore

"snmptrapd" receives and logs traps.
AFAIK a default package in any major distribution.

Thanks unSpawn, I am actually looking for a service which can forward SNMP traps to registered applications.

As you would know, if an application has bound to port 162, only it can recieve snmp traps. On windows , to avoid a single appplication holding up this port, a service - 'SNMP Trap Service' is used as a broker. This service binds to port 162, other applications interested in recieving SNMP traps than register with the 'SNMP Trap Service' through standard windows APIs. With this model, many applications can receive SNMP traps.

AFAIK snmptrapd does not offer a brokerage service for traps, can you please advise if there are any such services in linux.

Dunno. Maybe check "man snmptrapd" under "NOTIFICATION-LOG-MIB SUPPORT" if that's what you're looking for.
