Hi @JoseJarrin ,

Defining SNMP traps with Palo Alto firewalls is little different from other vendors. So the best way to check it to look at your firewall configuration.

- Device -> Server profiles -> SNMP Trap - here you define SNMP server and community that firewall will use to send the traps. Nothing more

- Device -> Log settings  - here you define what firewall will do for each log type.  Here you can specify log type and sub type that will be forwarded as SNMP trap to the host you defined earlier. Each log that is generated (system, traffic or security) by the firewall can be forwarded as SNMP trap (or syslog message). If you don't see your SNMP profile used anywhere in here, that means that your firewall is not sending any traps.

 

Another way would be to set a packet capture and filter for the SNMP server. Assuming that you use the dedicated management interface you will need to run tcpdump from command line - https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA10g000000CleECAS
