DFM is configured to forward events and alerts as traps to my trap receiver, and it is forwarding ok, except...a majority of the traps received have multiple alerts/events imbedded in the trap, for example, the alarmDescription field for one trap is:
IF-172.18.254.241/2 [PO4/0] [172.18.252.17]:HighUtilization; IF-172.18.254.241/2 [PO4/0] [172.18.252.17]:HighQueueDropRate; IF-172.18.254.241/2 [PO4/0] [172.18.252.17]:HighDiscardRate; 172.18.28.26 [172.18.254.241]:Unresponsive;
Is there a config option somewhere in DFM that will send individual traps for each alert/event received? These long (multiple) descriptions are causing problems, some are more than 255 characters and my trap receiver cannot handle it, plus, I need to process single events one at a time so that each problem can be address individually. Although it seems that all events in the string are from the same 'source', different problems exists for different ports/resources.
See this thread on disabling alert notifications. If you only want one event per trap, do not enable alerts in your notification group:
