Thread-topic: struggle for best approach

Hello all.  Running NV 7.1.4 FP3 on RH AS2.1


Looking for help on coding a ruleset to monitor remote routers doing dial on demand to an access server (both Cisco devices)

I can see the Async interface (built in modem) change state and the access server on this end open & close a PPP session. 

Ideally, the AS5350 would be the trap sender (since it’s LAN connected) but I’ve been struggling with how to parse it’s traps for anything meaningful other than the modem number it’s using (though I swear I saw one trap that actually had the PPP username come by and that could be handy)  Without that as an option, I can watch for an event where the 1811 Async 1 has become active or stopped (which I have plenty of traps for ) but I don’t know how to parse the trap for only the Async interface (I typically page on any interface transition) – but in this scenario we only want to know about Async interface going up AND down.


Can anyone point me in the right direction?  Please know I am not a scripter (basic batch files are about the extent of my skills) so unless it’s really simple I may not be able to understand any sophisticated scripts.


Thanks in advance,
