How to send snmp traps via shell script

Hello experts,

I am writing a shell script to get alarm information and depending of the alarm it will send snmp trap to a management platform.
The point I can not go further is sending the snmp. My HP-UX has the following installed:

bash-4.1$ swlist | grep snmp
OVsnmpAgent B.11.31 OpenView SNMP Agent

Is there a command to send the snmp? It has to be via CLI.

Many Thanks in advance!

If you have activated SNMP, there is a command called snmptrap. Read man pages for more details.

man snmptrap
