Regarding command “deactivate snmp traceoptions” in Juniper

Hi What will happen if the command “deactivate snmp traceoptions” is added in Juniper EX?
I think it would disable all SNMP function for this router, do you think so? Thank you

That should keep settings in configuration, however it should mark snmp as inactive:snmp the same way as you would shutdown interface.

Example2
 - not with snmp, but it is explanation what deactivate is doing.
However traceoptions are equal to Cisco debugging.
So, I guess it should just turn off snmp debugging, not to turn off snmp completely, but I am not sure. :)
SRX Getting Started -- Configuring Traceoptions for Debugging and Trimming Output
Stop Traceoptions

    The debug trace can be stopped in a couple different ways.
        Enter the “deactivate <option> traceoptions” to stop the trace.  This is a good option if you need to activate the trace in the future.  Use the 'activate <option>' to start capturing debugs again.
        # deactivate interfaces traceoptions
        # deactivate security flow traceoptions
        # commit

        OR
        Enter the "delete <option> traceoptions” command to delete.
        # delete interfaces traceoptions
        # delete security flow traceoptions
        # commit

    You can remove the log with the operational mode command “file delete interface.txt”.
    You can clear the contents of the file with the command “clear log interface.txt”.

Thank you so much for your fast reply.
So, after I add  command “deactivate snmp traceoptions” , the below commands would lose their functionality, can we say it like this?

set snmp traceoptions file files 2
set snmp traceoptions file size 10m
set snmp traceoptions file world-readable
set snmp traceoptions flag all
set snmp traceoptions flag pdu
