RFE against TS000163457

We have created a custom poller which uses a single OID search "ospfIfMetrcValue" and compares the threshold value if equal to certain number trigger an event.

Below are the OID values available available in the ospfIfMetricTable. Based on this I am using SNMP.VALUE.ospfIfMetricIpAddress value to populate as LocalaliasnodeAlias field value using the rules file. I have tried all the existing event map but unable to make the poller to perform granular lookup inorder to raise the event against the effected interface instead it is raising the event against the chassis.

ospfIfMetricTable TABLE not-accessible SEQUENCE OF
ospfIfMetricEntry ENTRY not-accessible OspfIfMetricEntry
ospfIfMetricIpAddress TABULAR read-only IpAddress
ospfIfMetricAddressLessIf TABULAR read-only Integer32
ospfIfMetricTOS TABULAR read-only TOSType
