I've never seen a request for a Netopia router flex connector, so I don't know if anyone needs one of these, but I have one in a lab and got tired of it parsing incorrectly, so I put together this subparser for Netopia events. Since it's just a lab device I haven't bothered putting together a categorization file for it, but I wrote the parser in such a way that it would be easy to do so if anyone needs it since I incorporated a device event class ID value for each submessage. I also added a default submessage that adds an event name of "Unknown event - see event message for details" so that you can easily search for events by name that aren't parsed correctly by this subagent.

 

To use this parser, just extract the attached zip file to the ../current/user/agent/flexagent/syslog folder of your existing syslog daemon smartconnector.

 

(Extra notes: I wrote this based on syslog events from a Netopia 3000 series wireless router running firmware version 7.6.1r9, which is the most current version available today. I tried my best to generate as many event types as possible, but if you use this agent and encounter events that aren't parsed correctly, I would love for you to send me the raw events or at least the value of the message field of those events. I'll do my best to keep it current.)
