The issue was resolved by installing the needed module: syslog-ng-afsnmp

I am referring the syslog-ng admin guide - https://www.syslog-ng.com/technical-documents/doc/syslog-ng-open-source-edition/3.30/administration-guide/48#TOPIC-1595034<https://nam12.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Furldefense.com%2Fv3%2F__https%3A%2Fwww.syslog-ng.com%2Ftechnical-documents%2Fdoc%2Fsyslog-ng-open-source-edition%2F3.30%2Fadministration-guide%2F48*TOPIC-1595034__%3BIw!!BiNunAf9XXY-!Q93jrzSZM4DX-Me8aBL3c0eYbt-EnqnTHtIIy3TzSyiJ4TIy3YexNnFaPAv7bmrAmrrw%24&data=04%7C01%7Cpeter.kokai%40balabit.com%7Cf379572f12174b196a0f08d9f6076813%7C91c369b51c9e439c989c1867ec606603%7C0%7C1%7C637811333957093773%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C2000&sdata=Nz%2BK7scKQPryybtsXC3fRgG30uBTly3CPpHGTDkFLY4%3D&reserved=0> and using the snmp() destination option.
The following is included in my syslog-ng.conf file as part of destination –

destination d_snmpv2c{
        trap-obj('.', 'Objectid', '.')
        snmp-obj('.', 'Octetstring', 'Test SNMP trap')
        snmp-obj('.', 'Octetstring', 'admin')
        snmp-obj('.', 'Ipaddress', '')

But syslog-ng service/daemon is not starting & pointing error at snmp(). Can you please help on this?
FYI - I am using RHEL7.
