If you're looking for free tools, look no further than the Net-SNMP 
project ( net-snmp.sourceforge.net )
But I think what you are really after is a trap receiver (trapd). This 
basically listens to UDP/162 for SNMP traps and then does something with 
them. Most Network management applications (eg. HP Openview NNM, Concord 
TrapEXPLODER, Micromuse Netcool, etc.) have an integrated trap receiver, 
for a price.
Also check out snmp.com - there may be some low/no-cost solutions for 
you there.
It's possible that Sun Management Centre software has a trap receiver as 
well, but I haven't looked closely at that app.
