    Creating an alert from match in Trap Details....

    sotherls

      Is it possible to create an alert based upon a match in the Trap Details? If so I can't find out how and NEED to....


      Also, I can't seem to find in the database where Trap Detail is stored. It isn't in any of the tables starting with Trap....

            I have a similar issue with traps and not sure if this was answered already.  Lets say I have a trap come in and I want to pull out one of the sections of the trap message and log it to a file.  When define the condition as the main trap OID, then add an action to Log to a file.....it doesnt appear I can figure out what variable I can insert to define which part of the trap message I want.  The only one that appears to pull the trap info is the default $Message but that logs a lot of lines of info I do not need.


            For instance F5 sends traps when a pool member goes down etc...if I log $Message I get every line including sysuptime, and a bunch of other values that are sent via the trap.  I only want the one line that describes what member is down.  Are there any variables available or macro sql calls that would be able to pull this info out?


             Hopefully I explained what I am asking for well. :-)
