4. OSPF Traps

OSPF is an event driven routing protocol, where an event can be a change in an OSPF interface's link-level status, the expiration of an OSPF timer or the reception of an OSPF protocol packet. Many of the actions that OSPF takes as a result of these events will result in a change of the routing topology. As routing topologies become large and complex it is often difficult to locate the source of a topology change or unpredicted routing path by polling a large number or routers. Another approach is to notify a network manager of potentially critical OSPF events with SNMP traps. This section defines a set of traps, objects and mechanisms to enhance the ability to manage IP internetworks which use OSPF as its IGP. It is an optional but useful extension to the OSPF MIB.
