The 3com traps that come with NetView are very old and were given to us by
3com once upon a time.
I doubt whether anyone can tell you what 3com devices support them, unless
it is 3com Support.    You can do what you
like with them -- modify them, delete them, whatever.   There is no
requirement that they remain in your trapd.conf file.

If you have NetView V5 there is a utility called mib2trap which will
convert those TRAP-TYPE mib definitions into addtrap commands, which can
then add those traps into trapd.conf, but there are problems with it that
are not fixed until 5.1.  Until you have 5.1,  you can still use mib2trap,
but you will have to add your own severity and a good format definition to
the addtrap output or it won't work.

In any case, I would just add whatever new traps you are getting and ignore
the old ones (or delete them).

In NetView Trap Configuration, there is an enterprise trap called 3com (1., which includes many traps, from 3COM_1 to 3COM_78. I would
like to associate some of them to 3Com switchs, like SuperStack-II SW
1000/3000 and CellPlex 7000 (ATM switch).

In the 3Com WEB site mentions the management RFC supported by these
devices. On CellPlex 7000, for example, it supports RFC1213, RFC1695, AToM
2 MIB, SONET MIB, Private Chassis MIB, LEC MIB, RMON MIB and Interface
Evolution MIB. Although, the traps associated with these MIB files are few
(if you edit the MIB file and look at the TRAP-TYPE definitions), and I
didn't find any relation between the NetView traps called 3com and the
traps defined from MIB files supported by switchs. (in NetView, in the
description field for each trap don't describe any specific device).

Do you know in which devices the NetView 3com traps are defined? Can I use
the 3COM_3 trap, for example, in a CellPlex ATM switch? The generic
enterprise name 3com means the traps are supported by all 3com devices?

Thanks in advance,
