Java Dynamic Management Kit 5.0 Tutorial


An SnmpTrapForwarder object makes it possible to listen to traps emitted by a subagent, convert them into the master agent's manager's protocol or protocols, and forward them to the manager or managers as if they originated from the master agent itself. One or more SnmpTrapForwarder objects must be instantiated, and the subagents must be configured to send their traps to these objects. This is the responsibility of the main application code. This is explained in detail in Trap Forwarding.
