The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an application–layer protocol for exchanging management information between network devices. This is basically how most devices in a network communicate. In this, the most commonly used SNMP messages are the SNMP Traps. SNMP traps are alerts generated by agents on a managed device.

VarBinds are alert data incorporated into SNMP traps, that are sent to the SNMP manager. This data is encrypted and is contained in a typical key-value pair configuration. These key-value pairs are called "Variable Bindings" or in other words, VarBinds. Each VarBind is made up of a triplet (OID, Data type, Data value).
VarBind oid: 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11 type: string value: DeviceDown
