Mike -

What level of code are you using?  $A is supposed to return the trap
sender, which should be the box reporting the down interface.  You are
correct that technically it is netmon reporting this but that trap which
netmon sends says that the "agent" who sent the trap is the failing box.
So Blaine is correct -- $A gives you the box with the failing interface.

  If this is a trap generated by Netview (via netmon) $A will return the
hostname of Netview.
