In an environment where you do NOT want to receive an SNMP trap every time a PC is turned on and off, you can add the following command to the Cisco Switch interface to prevent those traps. “no snmp trap link-status” Add it to every interface that you don’t want the trap from.
I had a case where no snmp trap link-status didn’t stop the snmp traps. After looking into the issue, I found that there was an SNMP statement converting all syslog into SNMP Traps. The following command snmp-server enable traps syslog was sending syslog events to the monitoring server via SNMP Traps. To resolve this, issue the following command to remove it no snmp-server enable traps syslog
Has anybody else been affected by this?
