How about auto clear an alarm after a certain number of hours or days have passed?
I think it’s dependent whether the device sends something if the loop is gone or not. Doesn’t matter if trap or syslog. Personally I prefer to work with traps whenever possible because most manufacturer implement traps with clear defined states. So for example Fan running = trapOID.x.x.x.1, Fan defect = trapOID.x.x.x.2 This makes it a lot simpler in XMC to work with self clearing alarms then with syslog and parsed strings. Also if you have different device manufacturers in XMC, parsed syslog strings are difficult to handle.
