    SNMP Trap Alerting questions

    sbeauchamp

      I have an external server that is sending SNMP traps to my NPM server. These traps have a certain variable in them that indicate a circuit ID. The problem is that this server sends the same snmp trap (until the problem is corrected) every 5 minutes, and unfortunately its not something I am able to change. What I need to be able to do create alerts based on the unique string in the variable I am looking for AND suppress the alerts so we only get the same unique alert once every 4 hours. Can I do this with NPM? I see that I can suppress the the alerts by the total number of alerts that come in on the rule, but I need to suppress them by the number of unique alerts.
