I'll bet David H. Lipman will know EXACTLY what this is (seems to be related to networking and something right up his alley).
In the interim, a quick Google search of "SNMP trap" turned up a wikepedia article and several more:
Mostly geek-speak to me, but it seems to be legit?

SNMP - Simple Network Management Protocol
There are two parts for SNMP which uses the UDP protocol (SNMP 161 & SNMP Trap 162).
SNMP is loaded on a system or device and using an associated platform related Management Information Base (MIB) you can query the device for its state and health.
Additionally there is a SNMP Trap daemon loaded on a centralized system (Network Management Station - NMS) that receives alerts from systems and devices and keeps records of the alert events. For example if a system has a fault it will send a datagram over UDP port 162 message to the NMS (SNMP Trap IP address).
SNMP is well known and there is a plethora of information on the 'net describing SNMPv1, SNMPv2 and SNMPv3.
Wireshark can decode SNMP trap messages and in "C:\Program Files\Wireshark\snmp\mibs" are various Management Information Bases (MIBs).
SNMP can also be used internally by a Windows system through the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
