Can someone tell me if the ONS-15454 support INFORM Traps?

I'm trying to get INFORM Traps working with my NMS, but I don't think it's working. Either I don't have it configured correctly or its supported on the ONS.

Many Thanks

Hi. and thanks for the reply.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Notification Traps are different than INFORM Traps. correct?

You are correct.  INFORM Requests are different from TRAPS.  Both are sent from the monitored device to the SNMP Manager.  Both advise the SNMP Manager of an event that has occurred.  The difference is the INFORM Request requires a response from the SNMP Manager while a TRAP does not.  The INFORM Request allows the monitored device to know that the SNMP Manager has received his message.

Now to the ONS... it supports TRAPS, but not INFORM Requests.

It is not going to be in the latest release (9.2) and no word on putting it into future releases.
