    Just though I would share a simple way to monitor the UIM/Nimsoft EventAdmin model for incoming traps. This simple Spectrum Watch performs a DELTA on the SBGWtrapEvents attr (ie on the UIM EventAdmin) for 0 over 5 minutes. Should traps stop flowing into Spectrum from UIM for over 5 minutes, an alarm will be generated. From there you can also use SANM to send an email notification as well.
