I have been requested by our development Team to create a lab enviroment for testing of various new software our company developes.
in the labhave a cisco switch configured to send out snmp v2 traps and i am looking for a way to generate a trap (of any kind) every 1 - 2 seconds . the switch is configured properly and when using wireshark i can view the snmp traps its sending however in order for a trap to work i need an event to trigger it like a port shutdown or something similar .
this leads me to the question how do i generate such a trap ?
the reason why this must be a trap is because the port i am using to sniff the network is a monitor session port and being such .. it must recevie the traffic .
i tried playing with a CPU trap to maybe trigger some event every 2 seconds but no luck there.
any help or pointers will be much appriciated.
