    NetSight Alerts for APs, deliver AP name instead of SN...

    I have Netsight configured to alert me if a AP goes offline. This is a typical email:

    Device:

    Severity: Critical

    Message: AP[13140661595A0000] out of Service on EWC[10.22.110.32]

    Netsight relays the info the HWC delivers to it via syslog (i think) The AP is identified by SN. SN is useless to me unless I x-reference though the controller. Can the alert be changed to identify AP by name instead of SN?

    Netsight can be configured to report the AP names in certain traps, alarms, syslogging, etc..

    There is an Alarms Manager section (Console --> Tools -- > Alarms Manager ) and you can go to a specific alarm and select "Actions" and override the content.

    For the trap and syslog section you can enter in $alarmSource, $alarmSourceName or $deviceNickName.

    Thanks Doug. $AlarmSourceName was exactly what I was looking for.

    Is there a reference where to find all possible variables?

    In Alarm Manager > Actions > Overwrite Content > Edit Content > Show Keyword...



    That will open the browser with the Online Help with all the varaibles.
