Extract character from an OID (BGP-Trap)


There is some way to extract the ip-address from the OID bgpBackwardTransition (. that has the data inside the variable $ 1 or $ 2.

Example: ., should extract '.' to print the value in incident message.

Thank You!

as far as I know this is not possible. The newer NNMi versions support BGP monitoring and perhaps you should upgrade and have a look at the out of the box solution for that.

In a engagement we have developed a script which runs as an action. The script "correlates" multiple BGP traps for a single router down situation (as multiple neighbors generating the traps) and issue a new single incident for that device (same for router up again). Perhaps this is an idea which will also work for you.


HTH and kind regards
