E7-2 Management>SNMP>Trap Destination Settings

Quick question:

 

What does "Inform Y" or "Inform N" do?  What are the pro's and con's of this setting?

Re: E7-2 Management>SNMP>Trap Destination Settings

From the manual:

Specifies whether the message type of outgoing messages is "INFORM." Otherwise, the message type is "TRAP."

INFORM messages carry the same data as TRAPS, but are acknowledged by the recipient or otherwise resent until they are acknowledged (5 retries, 1 second timeout).
