Can you send traps based on syslog messages from local NetVew/AIX box?
Is it possible to generate traps based on AIX syslog messages. I have a
Ciscoworks box as well as switches sending syslog messages to the NetView
box (AIX 4.3.3, NV 6.02). NetView's AIX syslog filters out critical syslog
messages to a special log. The reason we are doing this, is because syslog
provides more information than is available by just generating traps from
the switches (like coil errors). I also don't want Ciscoworks to generate
traps based on it's syslog because this would be a ton of junk traps which
I don't want hitting NetView.
My only idea so far is to write a script to search the syslog log on the
NetView box, but I was hoping there is a better cleaner way to do this. I
have read about trapgend and smux and have the impression that this is only
for AIX errors and does not apply to just any syslog message - if not I'm
not sure how to add this functionality to trapgend??.
