Correct. But receiving traps means monitoring that traps are received
and processed, sending test traps, etc. This is why we don't use traps
for anything.

Polling means we _know_ the data is current. If there's no data when
polling, a general alarm can be raised.

To put it another way, polling is more expensive than catching traps,
but more reliable.


PS: Can you log a request to add the data for missing PSU as well.
I.e. to make ME3600x act like C6500 in this regard. Or should I do
that via TAC?
