    Alert Message Manipulation

    So we have an SNMP OID for Cisco ASA's for failover that returns status numbers between 1 and 10. I would like my alert message to reflect the status codes description rather than number. Here is a list of the numbers and there descriptive names: 1:other 2:up 3:down 4:error 5:overTemp 6:busy 7:noMedia 8:backup 9:active 10:standby So when the alert is sent (on any change) we want the message to say something like: "The primary ASA firewall has changed failover status to ##VALUE##". But instead of the value being the number returned like "10" we want it to say "STANDBY" or the description of the value above. I made a groovy script that would take the snmp values and change them to the words returned. But I'm not sure the alert (based on delta|>0) will do anything with the text as it is non-numerical. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if there was much better way to do this. Any ideas? Obviously, we can include a legend/key in the alert message to explain the codes but we would rather not do this unless we have to. Thanks for you help! Mark
