%monitoraddr% adds the description as well

Is there a way to return just the monitor address instead of the extra information it adds


%monitoraddr% returns the following

servername.whatever:161 (D:\ Label:Data  Serial Number 780c5592)


All I want to return is


Also, is it possible to use this token in alerts?

If you examine a monitors internal xml configuration through the Popup XML feature you can target any items under the /nv branch. 

You can use %monitor[addr]% to get the address without the description. If you wanted to add the port you could do this %monitor[addr]%:%monitor[port]%.
