Could you do this?  Yes, you could, except that you would have to use the
snmptrap command to re-generate Cisco traps, because the event command only
generates NetView traps.  But this is exactly the sort of thing we do to
test rulesets.

And no, there is no single command to query a smartset for the status of
its members.  You would have to use nvUtil the get a list of the members
and then query the database for their IP status.  You could use ovobjprint
for that.

But if you are using smartsets, why not just create a smartset of things
which are both (1) Cisco and (2) IP Status down?  Don't have the user look
at events at all.  Have him or her watch the smartset instead.  That's what
I would suggest if you aren't going to keep the nvevents GUI up for a long
time.   The nvevents GUI would show you recent activity if you wanted to
keep that, but the smartset would track all activity.
