We are currently are trying to use the SNMP Trap receiver Beta to get real time updates from applications when problems arise. Upon testing this we noticed that PRTG doesn't do anything with the received trap until the polling period has been reached.
Why does the Trap receiver have a polling period, a trap should be instantaneous otherwise it's no better than an active polling sensor? Once the trap receiver receives the message it should immediately be acted upon.
Can you explain this behavior or have we misconfiguration something somewhere?
