It's my mistake, just swap agent and monitor. But as I understand, this doesn't matter.

Here you use broadcast address, it's better to specify monitor address (192.168.x.x).

But how agent will know where to send trap messages ? Sending traps to broadcast is not a good idea.
I don't know what "((SnmpTargetAddrEntryRow)addr).getAddress()" is, but I think you can look at source
