Here we have another akind of implementation.
We have writen a script that receives the trap and generates another one. In
this new one we can parse everything at its slots.
We found this solution interesting because we can use the native Netview
Rule base implemented in version 7.1.2.

The Internal TEC adapter does not afford you this sort of flexibility, nor
does anything you can throw at trapd.conf or the trap settings window in
message slot definitions.
To do this sort of thing, you will have to pass the event to an external
script that ultimately calls postemsg to send the TEC
event. It sounds scary but it's actually quite simple to do, and is
in fact they way we handle all our events.
You have a couple ways to pass the event to an external script. One is in
the trap settings dialog box "Command for automatic action," or identially,
adding a -C switch to the "addtrap" command that defines a given trap (see
man addtrap for details). The other way you can do it is by using an Action
node in a correlation ruleset (if you're using rulesets).
In the script, your varbinds will be accessible for processing as
environment variables. Then you can use awk or what have you to
isolate the second work in varbind 3 to form as an agument to your
postemsg command that sends the event to TEc with the slots populated as
