Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 613584
manual page of snmptrapd is buggy for option -D
Last modified: 2011-07-21 08:22:30 EDT
Description of problem:
while man page tells about -D TOKEN, snmptrapd only understands -D without any additional argument
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Turn on debugging output for the given TOKEN(s). Try ALL for extremely verbose output.
enable debug mode
# snmptrapd -h 2>&1 | grep '\-D'
-D turn on debugging output
snmptrapd does understand additional arguments of -D, but not in format which is described in man page.
Correct usage is -Dtoken, without space. I'll fix the man pages and -h output.
I've fixed the documentation upstream, SVN rev. 19230.
