bottleneckmon email alerts without external tool



I was wondering if it is possible to configure email alerts with bottleneckmon, without using through an external tool.

I only now of the "-alert" parameter in the bottleneckmon command, which will generate an SNMP and a RASlog alert, but no email.

In Fabricwatch for example, you can specify "-action email" for any event.

It is strange to me that this is not possible for bottleneckmon.


Is there any way to make bottleneckmon send out email alerts without external tooling? Or do you always need a tool that captures the SNMP trap and then send out an email accordingly? This kind of setup seems overkill for small environments.
