You know your atm mesh and (hopefully) you have an IP address bound up on the switch itself so you can gather snmp statistics from the box. I realize that this might have been too obvious to have come up in discussions when proactive monitoring was being implemented on your net. If you know that from your monitoring station it's normally 6ms to switch X and switch Y lives (normally) 6ms behind switch X, it's simple to set up alarm profiles. if X > 6 alarm if Y > 12 alarm You get the general idea. We do this exact same thing in our nework and have dependencies set up as well. For example, switch monitoring is dependent on switch X not being in alarm so, if X is in alarm, don't alarm for Y also because our path to Y is through X. blah blah. Don't worry about the CBX-500 in CMH. You know we'll call if it has problems. <grin> --- John Fraizer EnterZone, Inc
