    2. If you want to Automatically Refresh the Current Traps View, select the option, and position the middle slider to set the refresh rate.
    3. Position the Retain Trap Messages For How Many Days slider to set the length of time that traps remain in the database.
  4. On the Displayed Columns tab, use the arrow keys to select and order the fields of information you want to see in the Current Traps view.
