We have much the same situation.  To resolve this issue we installed the Magnum Coordinator.  A really nice product that does a very good job of determining and alerting on Root Cause of any outage as well as providing a list of affected devices / ip addresses.  I feel that it was very well worth the cost of the system in the functionality provided.  And in addition, what is most important to us is service and support.  Magnum has been exceptional in that area.

Subject: [nv-l] Monitoring Cisco Routers and interfaces

NetView 7.1.3 FP1, Redhat Linux 7.2

I was wondering what folks are doing to monitoring routers and interfaces.
I have about 800 cisco routers in my network. I need to monitor all the
interfaces on these routers and provide intelligent notification of events.
Primarily I use popup notifications configured in Event configuration for
trapd. I know I can also use rulesets.

Here is an example. I have a router with a loopback, ethernet, 2 WAN links.
I need to provide notification to my operators when the site goes down. It
is easy to determine when the site is down via a unreachable or router down
event. I can also alert when a single interface goes down via an interface
up/down event. The problem is that when a router is completely down I get a
notification for the entire router being down as well as a notification for
each interface. What tools or products exists to provide some intelligence
to the traps stream to give my operators more concise alerts.
