    How to build an alarm for SNMP discovery/stat collection failing



      Someone removed a Cisco router (with a valid community string) and installed a Windows PC (without a community string) using the same address as the router.  They didn't updated DNS.

      Orion continued ping the PC, but didn't update the Node Details, or generate any Event log that I could find about failing to rediscover or query the device.

      How do you build an alert or event to trigger when SNMP rediscovery or stat collection fails?  Or maybe how to build one for X amount of time since last successful stat collection or rediscovery?
