    Interface error Alert based on MIB Traps (RMON)

    styrfus

      Hi


      I have configured my Cisco 3750 and 6500 with RMON so it fires a snmp-trap when an interface recieves more than 0 interface-errors over a 1 min period towards my Orion 9.2 SP2.


      These are the rmon commands used on my Cisco equipment:


      rmon event 1 log trap SNMP-String description "High ifInErrors" owner ME 


      rmon alarm 1 1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.14.283 60 delta rising-threshold 1 1 falling-threshold 0 owner ME


      It looks like this when recieved in the Orion Trap Viewer:


      sysUpTime=2816057649
      snmpTrapOID=RMON-MIB:risingAlarm
      alarmIndex.1=1
      alarmVariable.1=IF-MIB:ifInErrors.283
      alarmSampleType.1=deltaValue(2)
      alarmValue.1=4
      alarmRisingThreshold.1=1
      experimental.1057.1=10.x.x.x
      snmpTrapEnterprise=RFC1271-MIB:rmon


      I want to be able to alert on this, i have the follwing questions:


      How do I create an alert based on the trap ? Does anyone have a kind of template for this ?


      Is it possible when configuring the alert to change the IF-MIB name to the real interfacename, eg:
      IF-MIB:ifInErrors.283 = GigaEthernet 5/4 ?


      If there's a another easier way to monitor and alert on interface-errors with RMON, please let me know.


      Thanks
