Hi Harry,

Poor names on my part.  Change (for example): 

                 counterErrors --> counterForErrors
                 counterWarnings --> counterForWarnings

Cheers,
- Ira

Sounds like it might be a good idea. Not sure I understand exact usage of
"counter errors". Is this problems with the counters, counts of errors...?

Hi folks,                                      Tuesday (25 January 2005)

I propose that we add an Alert group (objects) and an Alert Trap group
(notification) to the Counter MIB and a Counter events class to the WIMS
Events schema.

A monitor application that registers for 'icAlertV2Trap' notifications
can effectively use the Counter MIB stand-alone, typically without data
from any other MIB.

Comments?

Cheers,
- Ira
