How to generate a SNMP trap per event (custom media type script?) to a SNMP server/another monitoring tool ?

If so, how to pass the community + OID as arguments to the media type script? By default, only the destination, subject and message seem to be passed to the script.

I've concoted a script which parses all the necessary parameters from a Zabbix Action (each line following a controlled structure), mapping all the required parameters from the zabbix notation to the SNMP tree values range and later calling snmptrap -v2c – Joao Figueiredo Mar 16 '12 at 9:12

Did you try:

snmptrap -v 1 -c public '.' '' 6 33 '55' . s "eth0"

The snmptrap is linux command (so easy to use in shell scripting). It is contained in the net-snmp-utils package.
