Yes. I'd suggest submitting an enhancement request. Any event that Netview generates that can be correlated at the TEC should have the correlatable fields in separate slots. They did put the ip address of the down interface in a separate slot for this reason. The new ones for services should get the same treatment.

Re: [nv-l] servmon - Slot with service

Hi Martina,
As far as I know, you can only map complete TRAP variables to TEC
slots.  I can think of 2 approaches:
1) Run an automated action for this TRAP which parses out the second
token of the 3rd variable and generates a new TEC event using
wpostemsg.  Deconfigure sending the original TRAP to TEC.  You obviously
need to define your new TEC event with an extra attribute for the dead
service name - I would perhaps put it at the end of netview.baroc.

2) Run an automated action for this TRAP which again parses out the
second token of the 3rd variable and generates a new TRAP to your
NetView with the relevant information that you really want in it.  Once
tested, customise your original service TRAP to be LOGONLY and not to be
forwarded to TEC and customise your new TRAP to forward to TEC, mapping
the variables as you want them. Same comment applies re modifying

I guess the 2nd solution is a more architecturally clean solution but
probably takes more processing.

Any other ideas??
