snmp link down on itnerface trap received with out interface name but only with if index name

Hi,

we are observing snmp link down on interface trap in nnmi received with if index name but not with if interface name, can any one advise how can i import the interface name on the trap configurations, i tried with varbind values, but for some device the interface name or description order changes in custom attributes.hence it is not populating exact values in trap message, any one can advise how can i include interface name in the snmp trap configuration.

Re: snmp link down on itnerface trap received with out interface name but only with if index name

Hello bebu,

 

if NNMi "knows" this interface, the column Source Object of the incident contains the ifDescription. Then you shouls be able to add $ifAlias to the message text (see online help for other "Valid Parameters Visible from an Interface Form").

 

HTH and kind regards

Hello bebu,

 

if the sending node and related interface is no tin the NNMi database/topology, NNMi cannot "fill" the $ifAlias variable.

 

If the SNMP trap does not contain the information you are looking for, the only option is to use "some" information from the reveiving trap and to kick of an action script which uses these information to get the needed values and to generate a new SNMP trap with them.

 

HTH and kind regards
