Receives trap messages generated by local or remote Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) agents and forwards the messages to SNMP management programs running on your computer.

SNMP Trap logs on as NT AUTHORITY\LocalService and runs in its own process of snmptrap.exe. It does not share its process with other services. If SNMP Trap fails to start, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows Vista startup proceeds, but a message box is displayed informing you that the SNMPTRAP service has failed to start.
