6.6.1 Exception Reporting

The Master Agent enables the mapper to report traps to the agent by building a Master Agent trap PDU and sending it to the agent.

The trap is caused by an unsolicited message known as an INDICATION from the DMI SP. If these indications are from the component, they are called events. The mapper receives all indications after it has subscribed to the SP by adding an entry into its subscription table. The mapper also sets the filter conditions for receiving every type of event. Because the mapper is already waiting for requests from the agent, this routine is a separate thread. The subagent determines what OIDs are sent with the trap. The following list describes the different types of indications.
