Test SNMP traps
You can use the ONTAP System Manager classic interface with ONTAP 9.7 or earlier to test SNMP traps. Because communication with a traphost is not automatically validated when you add it, you should verify that the SNMP traphost can correctly receive traps.
Navigate to the SNMP screen.
Click Test Trap Host to generate a trap from the cluster in which you added a traphost.
From the traphost location, verify that the trap was received.
Use whatever software you ordinarily use to manage the SNMP traphost.
