Hi Sam,


For SNMP Traps, we were using 'Concord TrapExploder'. I'm not sure, if
this is still named that way - it's now more than 1.5 years ago, I'd
been involved in that project.
As we had configured all network elements to send the Traps to both
TrapExploders, we had to de-duplicate the traps on the EventManagement
piece of our NMS platform. But that's been an easy one...

For Syslog, we had used syslog-ng and it was just running like a charm..

.. just my 2ct's


regards
 	Martin
