Alerting and Viewing SNMP Traps

So, after looking through the community and the documentation it looks like I have successfully setup an SNMP Trap monitor. The snmptrap log file has successful traps. Now I want to be able to view those traps through the interface and alert based on linkstatus (up/down) of an interface. Basically, just send an email when I get certain traps.

Bonus points for instructions on changing the log file location.

Here is an older link that will explain content generators, and provides variables for the different types of generators:

Garrett have you set up the Analysis of Test Results section in the trap monitor?  You will also want to set up a content generator. This is where you will actually trigger an alert.

No, I was under the impression that enabling that would determine which traps got accepted or rejected. With that disabled I assumed it would allow any trap. The log file showed that the traps are being accepted so I thought I was good there.

I also didn't really understand what the content generator was. So I assume there is a way to set up additional content generators for email?
