SIM Alerts when Swap threshold is exceeded?

How do I configure SIM to send an alert when my Lniux servers have exceeded - say 500Mb of used swap?

Unfortunately, swap isn't one of the filesystems tracked by the management agent. See attached...

Re: SIM Alerts when Swap threshold is exceeded?

Hi, I've noticed that. Is it possible to do something using SNMP though? If I could get the oid string that shows how much swap is in use?

Any HP Expert on SIM,
is it possible to tract swap space usage through SNMP trap?
HP SIM is very limited in term of as a tool in monitoring. Dell OpenManager seems better.

I'm using Cacti now instead of HP SIM for monitoring and alerting of swap usage. Just thought I'd mention it in case you wanted to give it a go.
