Do you want to receive the traps on your desktop, or use a command, to generate the SNMP trap on the host server ?

Run the vicfg-snmp.pl command from the Remote CLI or vSphere CLI to enable the SNMP agent and configure trap destinations

You will need to install SNMP Monitoring software on your vc's desktop computer.

An example product is here

No, this software will display the alert when your desktop receives it.

(after you have tested and generated an alert using the test command!)
