I would make sure that the first trap is "Log Only" so that it won't show
in the Event Browser. You can run a script when this trap is received
(either from automatic action in the trap configuration or from a ruleset)
and this script will analyse the content of the variable and if the proper
severity is found, send a new trap configured to appear in the Event

Please respond to
I am looking for a way to handle traps, and specifically, remove a trap
in the database, so in the "event browser".
I have looked for something like a "specific" trap to send to trap
daemon to remove a given one, but I found nothing.
My real issue is : I receive snmp trap from an application, but with a
"compact" format, that means all fields I need (as severity, ...) are
grouped in one single string. So I must analyse this string and then
display the trap in the event browser according to what I found (by
default, the trap is indeterminate, but in the string i can find a
severity equal to critical, so i would like to remove the received trap
from the browser and display it again but with the right severity).
Thanks a lot for your help.
