The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a not a routing protocol but a network management protocol. The snmp statement controls whether GateD tries to contact the SNMP Multiplexing daemon to register supported variables. The SNMP daemon (usually smuxd) must be run independently. The snmp statement only controls whether GateD keeps the management software apprised of its status.
GateD communicates with the SNMP daemon via the SMUX protocol that is described in RFC 1227.
snmp yes | no | on | off

traceoptions traceoptions ;
} ] ;
Reporting is enabled by specifying yes or on and disabled with no or off. The default is on.
There are no SNMP-specific trace options. SNMP requests received via the SMUX protocol from the SNMP daemon are not handled quite like packets. The detail, send, and recv options are not supported.
