Multiple SNMP Traps with the same message

Hello,
I am using a IBM SAN24-B4 (brocade 300) SAN switch and have questions about the snmp trap settings.

Whenever a port goes offline/online on the switch, a SNMP trap is sent to the SNMP manager.
However when I get these traps, some traps have the same messages.

For instance I get the following SNMP trap message when a port goes online.

--------------------------------------
swFCPortScn: PortStatus: 1 ^(0/unknow 1/online 2/offline 3/testing 4/faulty^) PortNumber: 5 ^( RealPortNumber: -1 ^)
--------------------------------------

however I get 2 more traps at the same time with the exact same message.
I have disabled FA-MIB, so FA-MIB related SNMP traps are not sent.

Can anybody tell me why I am getting three traps with the same message instead of just one?
and how I can reduce it to only one trap?

I have attached my current snmpconfig of my switch.
(the snmp manager IP address is redacted )
I am not using snmpv3.

Thanks in advance.
