Difference between Syslog and SNMP traps

Hello,

What is the difference between Syslog and SNMP traps ? Does Syslog mean every log message shown in 'show log'.

The Cisco IPS sensors can not send Syslog messages of any kind using the native software. You can send an SNMP Trap when a signature fires, but you have to configure the signature action to do that on EACH signature you wish the sensor to send an SNMP Trap.

The Cisco IOS-IPS is a different story.
