Question:
Our firewall team noticed that the Data Collectors are sending traffic on port 162.  Does the Data Collector send traps?
Answer:
The data collector does not send any traps.  If notifications are configured it is the CAPC system that sends the traps.  If the Data Collector process is communicating on port 162 it is because a SNMP profile is telling it to poll port 162.
