I'm considering setting up an OpsView (core) server for testing and have been doing research. I have a few periphery devices and the metric I want to monitor has no snmp node to read. The only way I can get status is by processing/scraping a status email the device sends out.
Is there some way to mesh this with OpsView. A simple Red/Green based on the email saying Success/Fail would be sufficient.
Sorry if it's a basic question I tried searching but search with the term email returns tons of hits about OpsView SENDING out emails but I see nothing about it processing/acting on a rcvd email.
