I'm wonderng about a "missing feature", that is a daily one in working with snmp-traps - from my not very deep knowledge about snmp. Maybe it is also there but I do not know how to manage it.
My scenario: I have a communication server managing about 10 "dial"-connections to different partners, FTP, OFTP and so on. For each of it I'd like to know when there is a failure, sensor-state on error or warning. After the connection was established without problems again, the error-state should be deleted back to "ok".
I would expect the following from this feature: I setup the SNMP trap receiver. For the receiver, I configure different channels as different trap-codes (one trapcode for each connection). Then I'D need to configure what state the sensor should take on which message in the trap (set error, set warning, unset error, do nothing but log and so on).
After try-and-error for a while it looks as this could only be done with setting up a whole bunch of trap-sensors, one for each single trapcode, that would have to contain information about the connection and the state of the connection, but this looks as a very nasty solution, do it?
Hopefully you can understand what I'd like to do and give me a hint how to do such things.
Best regards Dominic
