    Orion node variables in Syslog and Trap alerts

    multipl3x

      Hi

       

      We recently set up syslog alerting and we are getting a pretty long stream of alerts into our NOC's email address.

      The problem is, they aren't very useful at all because of one single issue.

      I can't tell where they come from.

      IP address is great, but it takes some digging.

       

      From what I have read node variables in alerts should be available.
      I don't have the time/resources available to do a hosts file or reverse dns mappings for all of our devices.

      I have tried ${SystemName), ${SysName}, and a couple others, and nothing seems to work.

      Any insights into this?

      Would make syslog alerting so much more valuable to us.
