Hi folks, just wondering if anyone has tried forwarding events relating to 
specific interfaces to TEC. We are implementing monitoring in phases based on 
application and do not want to forward everything to TEC at this point.

For example, a router has several interfaces, and we want to only forward 
interface down traps from a subset of those interfaces. We were thinking of 
perhaps using a custom field in the database to mark the nodes/interfaces for 
the application in question, and then using that field somehow to filter out 
traps within a ruleset.

However, I have noticed that when a NetView Interface Down trap is generated, 
field 2 is the router name, and field 4 is a string containing the interface IP 
address plus other info i.e. I can't seem get the interface value in order to 
use a database compare node for the custom field value. I have thought about 
using a custom script as an alternative.

Any opinions on this approach? Is there a better way?
