— Traps are configured to send to this specific port on the server the agent is deployed.
— This is a Boolean value that indicates how to handle unformatted traps. If false, the unformatted trap is logged and discarded. If true, an alarm is sent to the alarm browser. Traps are logged in the agent log. The agent log can be retrieved through the UI using the Agent Status dashboard. The agent can be selected and the Get Log button can be clicked.
— When an unformatted trap is sent to the alarm browser, the duration of the trap is noted. When combined with the Clear Integration Alarm Rule, the trap could stay open in the event browser.

to the name or IP address and port number of the Management Server. For example: http://123.456.78.9:8080/Integration/Write.
