community (RMON)


Hierarchy Level


Configure the SNMP trap group that is used when generating a trap (if the eventType object is configured to send traps). If that trap group has the rmon-alarm trap category configured, a trap is sent to all the targets configured for that trap group. The community string in the trap matches the name of the trap group (and hence, the value of eventCommunity). If nothing is configured, traps are sent to each group that has the rmon-alarm category configured.

The event community is not the same as an SNMP community.


community-name—Name of the trap group that is used when generating a trap if the event is configured to send traps.

Required Privilege Level
