comment Only desired traps should be received by snmptrapd
The traptoemail script is a traphandle that comes with net-snmp. It's in the local directory of the source tree, or may have been installed in /usr/bin on your system.

comment HAProxy perl plugin and Net-SNMPd on Ubuntu 10.04
In /tmp/test.pl, try putting system("touch /tmp/test.works"); return 1;. If you start snmpd and it creates /tmp/test.works then you know the perl is getting executed. Otherwise, there is a different problem. Also make sure that your snmpd.conf file is being read (run snmpd using: -f -Le -Dread_config and watch the output).

comment Old, stale DNS slave server considered harmful?
They're both problems. Reducing the TTL before changing things that have mission critical timing is always a good thing. However, there is a lot of cases documented of resolvers that are caching information much longer than the TTL says to cache it.

Hmm.... You're right that the wiki appears down (I was just looking at it like 2 days ago, so it must be temporary).

comment Ubuntu local display
If this is on a remote then you definitely need the host name, with proper xauthentication set up. xauth is sort of annoying to get working, so once you get it running save the results in a script. I'll also add a note about SSH itself in an updated version of the above.
