3.2. The Event Group

   -- the event group
   --
   -- a collection of objects allowing the description and
   -- configuration of events from a SNMPv2 entity acting
   -- in a dual role.

   snmpEvent      OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { snmpM2MObjects 2 }

   -- The snmpEvent table defines the set of events generated on
   -- a SNMPv2 entity acting in a dual role.  Each entry in the
   -- snmpEventTable associates an event type with the
   -- notification method and associated parameters.  Some
   -- snmpEvent entries are fired by an associated condition in
   -- the snmpAlarmTable.  Others are fired on behalf of
   -- conditions defined in the NOTIFICATION-TYPE macro.  The
   -- snmpNotificationTable defines notifications that should
   -- occur when an associated event is fired.

               0 indicates that no unassigned entries are
               available.

               A management station should create new entries in
               the snmpEventTable using this algorithm: first,
               issue a management protocol retrieval operation to
               determine the value of snmpEventNextIndex; and,
               second, issue a management protocol set operation
               to create an instance of the snmpEventStatus
               object setting its value to `createAndWait' or
