    [ trapCategory ]* [ trapFilters trapFilter ]

    no snmp-server host ipAddress

    To specify the ping timeout and trap queue:

    snmp-server host ipAddress pingTimeOut timeOutValue
    [ trapQueue { drainRate queueDrainRate | full queueFull |
    size queueSize }
    [ drainRate queueDrainRate | full queueFull | size queueSize ]*]

    snmp-server host ipAddress trapQueue
    { drainRate queueDrainRate | full queueFull | size queueSize }
    [ drainRate queueDrainRate | full queueFull | size queueSize ]*
    [ pingTimeOut timeOutValue ]

    no snmp-server host ipAddress { pingTimeOut | trapQueue { drainRate | full | size } }
