Greetings listers

Netview V7.1.3
Solaris 2.8

We currently receive and process traps froma cisco content switch. They are syslog traps that contain only the name of the service and the state:

Web Application Event: Service Transition - Service:lexlw5se State:alive @ Tue Apr 22 03:33:06 2003

The section in red is the part that is stripped out of the syslog trap and used for notification. What I want to do however, is have a "node" in NetView that turns red when the service is down and then green again when the service is active. I have a perl script that can execute the necessary functions but I'm unclear on what those functions would be.

My original thought was to add a node to the map with that service name and then use the "event" command to mark it down but that does not work (I think because status events have to come through netmon and the event command really doesn't change the status on a node.)

In my environment I don't need to use nvsniffer or any other tool to check the status, I merely need to handle the incoming traps and change the status of the "node" based on the trap. Anyone have recommendations on how to go about this?
