    We have set up of Trap exploders (two in count) to send "Blind" traps to Spectrum. Where and how I have to check Spectrum for these traps. Ultimate goal is to generate alerts on any condition other than BGP session "Established".

    Sample config for reference:

    Modified "trapexploder.cf" file on both Primary and Secondary servers and setup as blind.

    # 'aview' action:
    # This action writes out traps in the aview format.  This action will
    # not work if TrapExploder is running on an eHealth machine with a
    # FaultManager license present.
    # filter * * * * * * aview /opt/aview/var/traps
    # filter * * * * * * aview c:\aview\var\traps

    filter * * * * * * blind 10.10.x.x
    filter * * * * * * blind 10.11.x.x

    filter * * * * * * file 'C:\trapx\log\trapLogs.out' 8192
