Subject: Interface Down Events
Whenever an interface goes down on a router, it sends a trap to my NetView
system. I want to be emailed whenever this happens, and sometimes paged,
depending on which interface is down. The problem I am having is when I
pass this to sendmail, I can only pass the interface that is down (i.e. $2),
but I cannot pass which node is reporting this. Does anyone know which
variable I can pass to sendmail (and eventually the paging utility) to let
me know which node is reporting an interface down?
