NAME

ap-trapd - a SNMP trap processing daemon
 

SYNOPSIS

ap-trapd [ -i device ] [-u user ] [-s]
 

DESCRIPTION

ap-trapd It's a SNMP trap processing daemon that accepts traps, parse them and store useful data using syslog, at logging LEVEL0. Specify device to listen for SNMP traps on the particular device (this option only works at Linux). To be running by user different from nobody you may specify user.
 
To correct work with Smartbridges APs specify -s key (they use specific traps).
 
Utility added to ap-utils from version 0.8.
 

SYSLOG

To store traps to own log file you may add next string to your /etc/syslog.conf
 
local0.* /var/log/ap-traps.log
 
After doing it, just restart syslogd with command like
 
killall -HUP syslogd
