this post describes a simply way to forward all traps by E-Mail received via SNMP.
This process is splited in several steps
- Receive the traps => snmptrapd
- snmptrapd calls the trapshandler script after each received trap. The trap details are handed over to the script by STDIN
- The trap handler is /usr/sbin/snmptthandler. This script spools all traps to /var/spool/snmptt
- The snmptt gets the traps from the spool folder, translate them in a human readable format and calls a custum script defined by snmptt.conf
