Alert when failover link is active

Question

We have a Cisco router that has a primary link on G0/0 and a failover link on a cell link (Loopback0). I want to trigger an alarm when the Loopback0 interface starts passing traffic. Is there an easy way to set this up? I cloned the snmp64_If datasource and started trying to pull out the exclusion for loopback interfaces so it will show them in the interface list. Now I just need to figure out how to alert on traffic for those interfaces. 

Thanks,
JW

You can take your cloned copy and basically modify the autodiscovered filter so it ONLY contains your Loopback0 interface and that can be a dedicated "snmp64_loopback" (or whatever name you want) DataSource. You can then setup global thresholds on this new DataSource which will only apply to Loopbacks. You can still keep the original snmp64_if for primary and other ports with it's own separate thresholds.
