SNMP traps are network health notifications sent on UDP port 162. The SNMP Trap Receiver tool receives and displays SNMP Traps sent from any of the following:

  • Network management applications
  • Network devices
  • Servers

You can use SNMP Trap Receiver to analyze the format of the trap and to verify that a trap source is configured and functioning properly.

The SNMP Trap Receiver adds a powerful diagnostic tool to your kit. Trap Receiver ensures your network management solutions are properly configured to accept traps sent by your devices. The format of the trap is dictated by the device sending the trap. For more assistance with interpreting the Trap Details, refer to the documentation for the device sending the traps.

After you have launched the SNMP Trap Receiver you are ready to start receiving and displaying traps. No configuration changes need to be made in order for the application to begin collecting traps.
