As I remember the $NVATTR_4 returns the event message, 'Interface Serial0
if you use netmon polling.
A simle way to extract the interface name via a small script is to call
it with this parameter ($NVATTR_4) like below :

# This script extract parameter $2 from from $NVATTR_4 (Interface 'name'
Down) # wich will return the 'name' of the interface
IFNAME=´echo $2´
other commands

If the scriptname is 'getifname',  you call it with 'getifname $NVATTR_4'
(for example as action in a ruleset)
