Current version of  the probe 3.17 and other versions of the probe, have a limitation when passing an alarm the probe only has the ability to parse complete variables and not a specific part of the alarm. The current request is to have the probe upon converting the trap into a  Nimsoft alarm  to parse specific elements as can been seem in the example



$1 = Silent Servers: MSDN.Probe.COM

Event: Http 302 - Found

Alert: Http 302 - Found

Threshold: 1

Last Value: 15

Threshold Type: Positive



So the request would be to go ahead and remove "http 302-found" and create a separate  as separate alarm with a the specified information.

"Http 302 - Found" from $1 and sent that as part of my alarm title to Spectrum like: "Dreamweaver Alarm: Http 302 - Found"


Please can this be added into as future functionality.

This idea remains "Under Review" and is not currently planned for a future release.


I am no longer the owner of this probe, and there is not a new owner assigned at this time.

Hello Jim,


Can you please provide me a link or document with all the improvements that you are planning for SNMPTD probe? Also, what's the ETA for this probe?

Thank you for the idea.  This idea is very similar to a few other ideas centered around SNMPTD, and parsing more information on both sides of the varbind.have a roadmap planned to make several improvements to the SNMPTD


I have a roadmap to make several improvements to the SNMPTD.  This was a story that I already had planned.

This is a great idea that brings delivery of an alert that is more human friendly (readable - and focused on true content of the situation).   We would appreciate this ability to provide our customers (our  Operations Command Center) a more readable friendly alert summary(extracting the sub-string that has more remainingful information and focused on root issue).

This is a great idea to be able to extract sub-string from a varbind in the SNMP probe and send that sub-string as a part of alarm title to Spectrum.
