GET vs TRAPEdit

from xxN0 MAX-ACCESS + Access Mode;

"get" = GetRequest + GetNextRequest + GetBulkRequest; see GetRequest GetNextRequest GetBulkRequest
“trap” = SNMPv2-Trap + InformRequest. see SNMPv2-Trap and Reliability of notifications

comparison:

TRAPs better than GET:

Lots of messages exchanged in TRAP vs often no change in GET;

Timeliness, there is time gap between event and next GET.

GET better than TRAP:

Timeliness of detecting element failure, time to next GET + timeout(detect) vs detect never or after element restarts in TRAP;

Robustness of GET.
