4.6. Polling Event Counters

Many of the tables in the OSPF MIB contain generalized event counters. By enabling the traps defined in this document a network manager can obtain more specific information about these events. A network manager may want to poll these event counters and enable specific OSPF traps when a particular counter starts increasing abnormally.

The following table shows the relationship between the event counters defined in the OSPF MIB and the trap types defined in section 5.
