Searching Logs for SNMP trap content

SNMP traps are available as LOGs in Dynatrace. Searching SNMP traps seems to be an issue, as searching in content doesn't match a lot of strings I'm seeing in OIDs.

How have you been able to search for specific content inside SNMP traps? BTW, this is in Managed, a non Grail environment.

Hi @AntonioSousa ! Here are my tips for the "Log monitoring classic" that works with Managed :

  • First you can rename your field if it contains "::" :


  • Then you can to add your field in a custom log attribute : 


  • Finally you can search into it :



Hope it helps.

This is an exceptional tip!I hadn't had the time to try it out, but worked flawlessly!

I believe you should post it in the Tips & Tricks zone, so other Community users might benefit.

BTW, I was intrigued about the first step: it might be because "::" are not permitted as keys, or even caps letters being present. Do you have a confirmation why it is needed? Because if it is, I believe it is structural, and not even a Product Idea would be applicable here.
