Syslog logging vs SNMP

I have a Cisco ASA. I noticed you can configure sending syslog messages 2 ways:

1. logging enable
    logging trap notifications
    logging host inside x.x.x.x

2. snmp-server host inside x.x.x.x community *******
    snmp-server enable traps syslog

Are these two methods one in the same? If not, what are the differences?

They are not one in the same:

1.  Sends syslogs.

2.  Sends SNMP traps as syslogs.

Why/When would you want to do number 2?

If your syslog/management server can't process SNMP traps.  Sending them as syslogs allows them to be processed as syslogs.

Just as a follow up, would enabling syslogs on the ASA catch everything that snmp would? Basically, would  "logging trap notifications" include everything that "snmp-server enable traps syslog" would? Would it make any sense to have both enabled??
