Monitor dlsw+ status via SNMP and change config?

Unanswered Question

I have two routers, a 2600 and a 2801, both with dlsw+ for mainframe access. One connected to my primary WAN connection and one on a backup. I need to be able to monitor the status of the dlsw connections to be able to redirect traffic in case of a failure.

I've seen that there is a MIB for dlsw, but it's less than clear which OID gives me status. (I suppose I can count cicuits, but that's plan B).

When status is determined - can I via a script on a server change the configurations of these routers to transfer the traffic from one to another? Via SNMP or otherwise?

Or am I barking up the wrong tree to solve this?

Kind regards
