generate alarm when specific trap is received



Traps can be hard to understand. Thus i want to create an alarm for every time a certain type of trap is received, for instance a dying gasp trap. Is this possible within the SNMP Trap Receiver?

Just found out it is possible with filters and notifications inside the trap receiver sensor... but still got to make it work https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/64208-alarm-for-trap-received-in-snmp-trap-receiver
