Vision (whether on VxRack or VxBlock) acts as a blind forwarder for SNMP traps, so your dell/emc system (VxRack or VxBlock) would have components forward traps to Vision Core VM, then using "configureSNMP" script on the Vision Core VM you would define your 3rd party SNMP host/software IP for Vision to blindly forward traps to.

The Vision Administrator guide on has a section on how to setup SNMP trap forwarding from Vision Core VM to a 3rd party SNMP host/software.

The purpose is for Vision to be a single point to change or update your 3rd party SNMP host/software's IP. Otherwise, if say your 3rd party SNMP host/software's IP address changed you would have to go to each component in your dell/emc system (VxRack or VxBlock) and update the components config for the new IP address.  By pointing all components to the Vision Core IP and then having Vision blindly forwarding (using configureSNMP script) traps, you only have to change the IP address from example 1 time from the Vision core VM instead of having to go to all of your components to change the IP address.

i hope that answers your question. thanks
