ap-trapd - a SNMP trap processing daemon
ap-trapd [ -i device ] [-u user ] [-s]
ap-trapd It's a SNMP trap processing daemon that accepts traps, parse them and store useful data using syslog, at logging LEVEL0. Specify device to listen for SNMP traps on the particular device (this option only works at Linux). To be running by user different from nobody you may specify user. To correct work with Smartbridges APs specify -s key (they use specific traps). Utility added to ap-utils from version 0.8.
To store traps to own log file you may add next string to your /etc/syslog.conf local0.* /var/log/ap-traps.log After doing it, just restart syslogd with command like killall -HUP syslogd
When a trap is received, a message will be logged indicating that an action happened to the Access Point such as: Trap Reassociation: This trap message is sent when a Station reassociation request is received from Access Point. Trap Association: Indicates the reception of an association request packet and the sender Station's successful association with the Access Point. Trap Disassociation: This trap message is sent when a disassociation notification packet is received from a Station. Trap Reset: This trap message is sent when Access Point Resets. Trap Setting IP Address with Ping: This trap message is sent when the Access Point IP address is set with the transmission of a ping message. Trap Start Up: This trap message is sent when the Access Point Starts Up. Trap Failed To Erase Flash: This trap message is sent when Access Point Failed To Erase Flash. APClientScanning Access Point Client is scanning... APClientAuthenticating Access Point Client is authenticating with the AP. APClientAssociating Access Point Client is associating with the AP. APClientReAssociating Access Point Client is reassociating with the AP. APClientAuthenticationFailed Access Point Client has failed authenticating with the AP.
