For the first time in 30 years I have now seen a TRAP OID message returning with a sequency number at the end of each Trap OID messages.

And because of the sequency number, it is impossible to filter for Include/Exclude/warnings/Error in the context / variables. See below.

So I surgest that PRTG TRAP reciever, get a WILDCARD function. That allows filtering from a certain tree level so that it can be filtered on a tree subgroup or sequence number with subsequent parameter / variable. Like .*,5 or APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgSeverity.* = cleared (5)

Example from my TRAP reveiver (it is only one event notifikation) :

APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgSequenceNumber.9060 = 9060

APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgId.9060 = 1048611

APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgText.9060 = Link down input

APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgSourceName.9060 = Network

APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgSeverity.9060 = cleared (5)

APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgDetailPresent.9060 = 0

APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgGenerationTime.9060 = 2018-10-02 13:58:40


APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgPort.9060 = -1

APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgInstance.9060 = 0

APPEARTV-MESSAGES-MIB::msgCardId.9060 = 12
