snmp inform

The snmp inform session allows to send an acknowledged notification to a manager. An inform-request generated which is confirmed by the manager with a response message. The event type is defined by the snmpTrapOid in the same way as described for the trap session command above.

The varbind list vbl contains variables that provide additional information for the remote manager. Note, the value of sysUpTime.0 is added to the varbind list automatically. The inform session command will only send confirmed notifications on SNMPv2c or SNMPv3 sessions. Invoking the inform session command on an SNMPv1 session will result in an unacknowledged trap. If the inform session command contains a callback script, then the command sends the inform-request and returns immediately. The result is the request id for the asynchronous request.

The snmp# inform session command is processed synchronously if the callback script is absent. In this case, the received varbind list is returned. The command fails with a Tcl error if the manager does not respond or if a protocol error happens.
