notificationEvent ifMtu.1 IF-MIB::ifMtu.1

monitor -I -u root -s -t -r 18 "Warn: High ipp Usage" -e ifMtu.1 !=

The above lines are in my snmpd.conf file which is generating a trap when the condition evaluates to false.

My issue is that I want to send "Trap Severity Levels" with it. Is it possible? If so, how? If it isn't is there any other way to send them?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You need to use -o option in addition. For example:

monitor -o -o -I -u root -s -t -r 18 "Warn: High ipp Usage" -e ifMtu.1 !=

where: and are two additional varbinds added to SNMP PDU payload and defined by these OIDs.

You may also refer to: man page of snmpd.conf do
