Hello. Normally I like to do all the filtering of SNMP traps at source, so adding a rule to notify us is straightforward - forward all traps as an email, etc.
In this case I can't do so, so I need to exclude certain traps from my alert rule. Specifically, I need to forward all traps that contain the string cdsAlarmMajor , unless they also contain the string tcpstat-v1 in which case they can be ignored. At a later date, I'll also need to add extra exclusions.
The first section is straightforward - just put *cdsAlarmMajor* in the Trap Details tab. I assume for the exclusion I should use the Conditions tab, then do a rule that says "Traps received where none of the following are true", and then have a separate line for each string to exclude but what do I need to put in the first half to replace SNMPvs-MIB:snmpTrapOID?
