Transport tweaks

Serving multiple network interfaces

Receive SNMP TRAP/INFORM messages with the following options:

  • SNMPv1/SNMPv2c
  • with SNMP community “public”
  • over IPv4/UDP, listening at 127.0.0.1:162 over IPv4/UDP, listening at 127.0.0.1:2162
  • using Asyncio framework for network transport
  • print received data on stdout

Either of the following Net-SNMP commands will send notifications to this receiver:

$ snmptrap -v2c -c public 127.0.0.1:162 123 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.1 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.5.0 s test
$ snmpinform -v2c -c public 127.0.0.1:2162 123 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.1

Requires Python 3.4 and later!
