MX408e SNMP Trap String Configuration

Version 1

    Question:

    What is the SNMP trap-string?

     

    Answer:

    The trap-string is a textual representation of a 32-bit hexadecimal bitmap, where each bit corresponds to an individual alarm.
    The default value is set to all zeroes, which effectively disables all the fault traps. The string must be set to all ones for traps to be sent.

     

    Here is the CLI definition:

    mx408e#2(config-snmp)#trap-string xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx - Configure SNMP trap enable string (Ref. adMX408e.mib)

     

    Example for setting the trap-string using CLI:

    mx408e#2(config-snmp)#trap-string FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF

     

    Note, when using CLI to show the SNMP provisioning, the trap-string is not displayed when it is set to ‘00:00:00:00:00:00’ (default).
