OIDs are only used when using SNMP to 'query' a device (a SNMP GET).

These SNMP GETs are scheduled, interactive and generally user-initiated.

SNMP Traps are not scheduled and are generated 'when' something happens. They are generated by whatever system (your router) and sent to a pre-determined destination (your Orion NMS).

Both (GETs and TRAPs) are both functions of SNMP, but they are independant, separate parts of the overall SNMP system. Both have their roles (TRAPs for 'alerts' and GETs for 'questions'). OIDs are only needed when questions are asked.

Darren is correct. If you want to create a trap in Orion, it's pretty easy. Take a look at the log when an interface goes down and base your trap alert off of that.
