When one link of my eaps links went down I noticed that  the switch sends the trap: extremeEapsLastStatusChangeTime and there was no alarm in Netsight.

In Netsight the alarm is triggerd by extremeEapsLinkDownRingComplete.

Is this correct ?

extremeEapsStateChange would be the best trap to use.  Looking at the MIB I found that the "extremeEapsLinkDownRingComplete" trap will only be sent when If a EAPS Transit node is in a Link-Down state, and it receives a Health-Check-Pdu from the Master indicating the ring is complete.  This should not happen in a correctly configured EAPS ring, and is why you didn't receive this trap.

Sorry for the confusion and hope this helps.
