Sometimes in multi vendor managed environments the status of a link can't readily be pinned down to a status change on a physical component. e.g. "holding time expired" EIGRP syslog message indicates that an ATM link (Telco managed) is down although the Orion monitored ethernet interface connecting to the ATM switch is up and operational.
My feature request is to create an alert action that simply changes the colour status of a link / item displayed on a map.
Got it, this is something we have heard from others looking for something similar to network weathermap.
