The sending of trap messages and not polling process by the NMS
station.

Actually, I would like to know whether we can change or add or delete
default trap  IP address destination of a  SNMP agent ( using SNMP set-
commands) .
Once you get a Manager running ( HPOpenView,SPectrum, Sunnet
manager, NETview etc) . It can configure all the switch to sent their trap
to manager. No need to telnet to all devices and configure or configure
multiple traps destination to all the devices
Is this is possible.? if it is possible, I would like to know which MIB
variable does it refering to.?

You said configure. In what way it is done ? Via telnet , console or SNMP
set commands.

I don't understand what you mean by "default manager". Usually,
several managers can perform requests simultaneously to a given
agent. Moreover, it is generally possible to configure agents so
that they send the traps to all the managers.

What particular behaviour should have an agent against a "default
manager" ?
