All traps received by DFM can be forwarded to another NMS by configuring trap forwarding under DFM > Configuration > Other Configurations > SNMP Trap Forwarding.

The best docs are the built-in context-sensitive help you get by clicking on the Help link in the top right-hand corner of the screen when looking at the trap forwarding page. However, there's not much to it. Simply add the IP address/hostname of the forwarding destination and the UDP port to use, and you're done.

While it's not supported, you can control trap forwarding in by modifying the NMSROOT/objects/conf/smarts/conf/trapd/trapd.conf. The comments in this file should get you started. Once the file has been modified, restart Daemon Manager.

I just checked another thing.

I believe Notification Services Generate Events based on information collected through syslog/snmp messages generated by the devices.

So i can use Notification Services to Create EVENT SETS and use SNMP Trap Notification to forward the event as TRAP , So it will help me achieve the Same goal as filtering traps??
