    Alerting when a Cisco Trunk port goes down


      Hi all -

      I'm just trying to get the hang of NPM etc (and am loving it so far), but one thing that doesn't seem to be straightforward to do is to send an alert when a Cisco 802.1q trunk interface goes down (rather than being bombarded with alerts whenever someone unplugs a PC/Phone/Laptop etc ). When I look in the Advanced Alert Manager there doesn't seem to be any option for "interface is trunk" or interface is "802.1q" etc. Am I missing something obvious?
