Modify Event Properties

You can limit when a particular Windows NT event is translated into a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) trap by generating traps only when the frequency of a Windows NT event causes concern. For example, you can generate an SNMP trap for logon failures if three failures occur within 60 seconds. (In this case, only one trap is generated, not three.)

  1. In the Event to Trap Translator window, select the event.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. In the Properties dialog box for the selected event, complete the following settings to specify the event properties:
  4. Generate Trap If Event Count Reaches count
    Specify how many times this event must occur before the SNMP trap is generated.
    Generate Trap Within Time Interval time
    Select to specify that the number of events in Generate Trap If Event Count Reaches count must occur within a finite period of time. In the number box, type the number of seconds.
  5. Click OK.

Note    The Properties dialog box also displays the specific ID for the trap. You use the specific ID to configure a trap filter for traps generated from this event.
