SNMP trap reciever bind variables



I'm just a beginner with PRTG. I configured SNMP Trap Receiver and it works (test SNMP trap notifications passed). But I have problem with my real SNMP trap. It is snmp version 1 and contains bind variables in its body. I catch snmp packet by Wireshark, here it is:

3704	623148.637157	SNMP	162	trap iso.

You see, it has the main root iso. and some multiple variables, for example: - server name (for example: "MyServer") - server sensor name ("file share") - server senasor status ("Error") - status description ("file was modified")

For me it is important to get and work with all this messages _together_. Is it possible to do this, using PRTG? What is yhe OID value syntax in this way? The only one, I've get is _separated_ messages with different OID values listening.

I'm afraid as PRTG needs the exact OIDs of a variable binding you would have to use multiple Trap Sensors.

best regards.

It's a pity, separated OID value without other variables is pointless for me in this case (due to my previous example, for I'll get trap "Error", which really means nothing without understating on what system it happened). OK, I'll try to find smth to resolve this problem.
