Shell Script - Generate SNMP Traps

Good morning to you all

Im kinda of a noob to scripting, and my knowledge is still very basic: anyway, Ive developed a small .sh script with the following purpose:

- it will check a result file, checking if it has any values, or if its empty
- if its empty it will send an email

What i wanted to do, is eliminate the email part and generate some kind of snmp trap to be used for Nagios for instance, and create an alarm.

Does anybody know how to do that? Any help is apreciated. Thkx

Here goes the code:


##############################################

cat /var/www/monitor/scripts/TestProbes/probelist.txt | while read probe

do


if [[ -s /var/www/monitor/scripts/TestProbes/Probes/"$probe".txt ]] ; then

echo "Probe has data at $(date +%Y-%m-%d) $(date +%H:%M:%S)" > /var/www/monitor/scripts/TestProbes/results.txt

else


SUBJECT="No\\ Service\\ at\\ "$probe" "
EMAIL="XXXX@XXXX.com"
EMAILMESSAGE="mail"
echo "====================================================
A "$probe" ISNT WORKING:"> $EMAILMESSAGE
echo "$(date -d "-3 hours" +%Y-%m-%d) $(date -d "-1 hours" +%H:%M:%S)
====================================================" >>$EMAILMESSAGE

su -c "/usr/bin/mail -s $SUBJECT $EMAIL < $EMAILMESSAGE" Probe_Tester


fi

rm /var/www/monitor/scripts/TestProbes/Probes/"$probe".txt
touch /var/www/monitor/scripts/TestProbes/Probes/"$probe".txt
chmod 777 /var/www/monitor/scripts/TestProbes/Probes/"$probe".txt


done
