SNMP Traps - referencing OIDs without knowing the Attribute name

Frequent Guest

Below is a sample log entry from SNMP:  I need to create an event extraction and include all the SMI Experimental variables.  The challenge is that the column/attribute names will change depending on the trap.   One time it may be

"SNMPv2-SMI::experimental.": "129"
and next event  may be

"SNMPv2-SMI::experimental.": "80"

Is there a "field" that will let me dump all the elements into the event extraction, regardless of the column name?

In my case, I have uploaded MIB files to the ActiveGates, and now I don't have OIDs, but their resolution name. Do you think it might help in your use-case?

Thank you, Antonio...I THINK I'm going to use the OID Trim function to help with this situation.    

I would still like a way to have a index for a OID so that I can reference with a variable.
