James is correct, there is a script from Cisco which already has the all
of
the addtrap commands in it for all Cisco traps.
If you can't find it, send me a note and I'll forward you a copy of it.
Shouldn't be too hard to find, search for Netview on Cisco's site.

My understanding is that you can get a large addtrap script from Cisco
support which will add all their traps to trapd.conf.  I thought you
could
just download it from their website, but perhaps my information is old.
Can anyone confirm this?

Failing that you could try running mib2trap against the MIBs you have
and
see if it will create small addtraps scripts for you.  You would then
run
these to update trapd.conf.  I am assuming you have NetView V5.1.

I am getting a large number of traps from cisco routers that are not
defined
in trapd.conf.  I have loaded a large number of the cisco snmpv1 mibs
from
their website.  Do the mibs contain the trap information as well ?
Where
can I get the information to load into trapd.conf.  I am getting a
variety
of traps, not just one trap over and over.  Here is one of the traps I
get
repeatedly:

Specific:1
Generic: 6
Category: Status Events
Enterprise: 1.3.6.1.4.1.9
Source: Source Not Known
Hostname: ciscorouter
