    In PM the device Pingable use the Metric Family Reachability and you can use the Metric Average Response (ms) to send Alarm

    Yes, Pingable models can receive traps but you'll need to make sure you have enable_traps_for_pingables=TRUE in your .vnmrc.  If not, you'll need to make that change and restart the SpectroSERVER.  Some additional reading:
