Can someone tell me if the ONS-15454 support INFORM Traps?
I'm trying to get INFORM Traps working with my NMS, but I don't think it's working. Either I don't have it configured correctly or its supported on the ONS.
You are correct. INFORM Requests are different from TRAPS. Both are sent from the monitored device to the SNMP Manager. Both advise the SNMP Manager of an event that has occurred. The difference is the INFORM Request requires a response from the SNMP Manager while a TRAP does not. The INFORM Request allows the monitored device to know that the SNMP Manager has received his message.
Now to the ONS... it supports TRAPS, but not INFORM Requests.
