Thanks Martin, thats got me on the right track, i have a few more questions tho if you can help, in the management documentation it states ..
• Do not set traps on tabular data.
It is possible to set traps on row entries in a sequence—for example, an entry in a table. However,
if the order in the table is changed by adding or removing rows, you will no longer be trapping
the same numeric variables.
So don't set traps on tabular data .. but sometimes you can !
So in my example of wanting to trap on aggrStatus (which is listed in traps.dat) if i query the oid i get a table with 2 instances both saying online.
So my variable should work if i use trigger = change-trigger then if any of the instances change state i should get a trap ?
For Another one i want to trap if im using 90% of cifMaxconnections
I can query cifsMaxConnections = 730400
Can this be achieved ? (there doesn't seem to be a cifsCurrentConnections attribute available)
