How can you use old snmp trap varbinds variables in the new OLV?

I am trying to extract a field from a SNMP trap but I cannot find anyway of doing it in the new 2019.4 RC1 release. Is there a variable equivalent to ${varData1} in the latest realease?

You can use SWQL queries in the alert message (or custom query) to extract the varbinds. It's a bit messy but it is discussed in this thread:

I can confirm 100% the above is correct. Everything is dumped as a "message".

This is logged as a feature request with a few examples from us, and gets wrapped up under the "extract data" from the "what we're working on". No sign of it in the new release/RC. I suggest raising a Feature request for your exact metrics/examples to make sure they develop something fit for your needs.

Is this the feature request your referring to?  Log Analyzer - Allow searching for varbind name / value pair

Pretty certain that the new tool doesn't retain the varbinds as separate objects, they just all get clumped together as "message"

From my experience that is what it does, but it really isn't helpful at all. Most messages contain a lot of useless information that just clutters things up if you display it as a whole.

Would have been nice if they actually had the features of the old tool before they "deprecated" it.  😞

I have raised a feature request idea here: Please up-vote it as this is the same function you are asking for!
