150 CHAPTER 7: CONFIGURING SNMP
The inform or trap option specifies whether the MSS SNMP engine
expects the target to acknowledge notifications sent to the target by the
WX switch. Use inform if you want acknowledgements. Use trap if you
do not want acknowledgements. The inform option is applicable to
SNMP version v2c or usm only.
The username is a USM username, and is applicable only when the SNMP
version is usm. If the user will send informs rather than traps, you also
must specify the snmp-engine-id of the target. Specify ip if the target’s
SNMP engine ID is based on its IP address. If the target’s SNMP engine ID
is a hexadecimal value, use hex hex-string to specify the value.
The community-string is applicable only when the SNMP version is v1 or
The profile-name is the notification profile. The default is default.
The security option specifies the security level, and is applicable only
when the SNMP version is usm:
unsecured—Message exchanges are not authenticated, nor are they
encrypted. This is the default.
authenticated—Message exchanges are authenticated, but are not
encrypted—Message exchanges are authenticated and encrypted.
The retries and timeout options are applicable only when the SNMP
version is v2c or usm and the notification type is inform. The retries
option specifies the number of times the MSS SNMP engine will resend a
notification that has not been acknowledged by the target. You can
specify from 0 to 3 retries. The default is 0. The timeout option specifies
the number of seconds MSS waits for acknowledgement of a
notification. You can specify from 1 to 5 seconds. The default is 2.
The following command configures a notification target for
WX1200# set snmp notify target 1 10.10.40.9 usm inform user
