Hi

I am using Splunk Enterprise 6.4.2. However http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.1/alert/SendingSNMPtrapstoothersystems does not support latest versions of Splunk.
Is there any alternative solution to this?

Thanks in advance

Here is the best answer I have seen about SNMP; it is older and some new options surely exist but it is a great starting point:

Ultimately, the way to do this is to run a search that triggers a script (as an alert action). All the documentation supplied was tips about how to do this.
Here are a couple of scripts that people have posted: Generate SNMP trap from Splunk
But you could just google "python send snmp trap" (or your language of choice) for example scripts.

Also, you can take a look at the documentation on triggering a script as an alert: Run a script alert action.
