Spoofing Standard SNMP Traps

You can use the request snmp spoof-trap operational mode command to mimic SNMP trap behavior. The contents of the traps (the values and instances of the objects carried in the trap) can be specified on the command line or they can be spoofed automatically. This feature is useful if you want to trigger SNMP traps from routers and ensure they are processed correctly within your existing network management infrastructure, but find it difficult to simulate the error conditions that trigger many of the traps on the router. For more information, see the JUNOS System Basics and Services Command Reference.
